Default Hood graphics...

I kinda want to spice up my hood a bit,

i've though about going with chrome MUSTANG lettering across the good, like the old school FORD,
but I want to be a but more unique.

I like the matte black on my satin silver, it looks spectacular.
I have black 4" saleen hash marks now, and I'd like to throw some type of vinyl graphic on the hood.

My friend has a large scale professional vinyl cutter, and any image I can provide with a Vector image of, he will be able to cut out for me.

Alas, I'm stuck with what I want...
I really like the looks on this BMW, but not sure what I'd want.

Any ideas?
I don't want like something centered on my hood, I really like the offset of the BMW graphics as well.

Thoughts?




this is my car btw.

Hehe, that BMW belongs to a friend of mine.

And I also have a large scale vinyl cutter, if you need me to do any cutting for you. I cut out all my own vinyl decals

lower your car first, its going to be REALLY hard to do anything that wont look cheesy.
but thats the good thing about vinyl, you can ALWAYS take it off. think of cool ideas, try a couple. but remember most people on this forum like classic clean mustang, its goin to be hard to get a thumbs up on graphics.

yeup its hard to break the mold of the same old opinions. I personally think the only way to do your hood is with airbrushing. I have thought about this but the cost is what keeps me away.

I don't know, I used to like the scratch and sniff ones back in elementary school.

For the hood, save and get a new hood. Or sell those wheels you been talking about, get some 17" bullits someone pulled off and your on your way to a new hood!
