Default torch red w/black hood...

How do you think this combination would look, too ricey? I've seen white and yellow cars with black hoods, and they look pretty nice. Found an 07 hood on craigslist for cheap, thanks!

I don't like the idea of the entire hood painted black because it looks like it is "unpainted" that way. But a major section out of the middle black can look pretty cool.

+1 on that Casey4s. mdg, what type of louvers do you have? They look real sharp.

I've since removed them, purchsed them from wheelskin. May do it agin in the future.

Any other thoughts about a stock black hood on a torch red?

black on red would look good. Try it out. If you don't like it sell the hood.. can't lose on that. My take... do it. I think you will like it. my whole theme is black on red and here recently started thinking about doing a two tone upper black...

a Boss style colored hood looks good on it, and yes black would definately be the color, either a flat or matt black is what I would choose.

and what I mean by Boss style, is the pattern of the black, not just a completely black hood.
