Default A New Look...

So someone vandalized my stock hood while it was parked in my covered parking spot ( not cool! ) Forgive the crappy cell phone pics...

The day I picked it up...

Sucks to hear what happened, but I really like the new look.

Looks great stripe-less. The aftermarket hood has just the right amount of rise to it, nothing too crazy. After all, you'd be "cowl inducting" into what? I really like that you kept the red GT500 on the fenders. THAT look - I've never seen before. Cool touch. Personally, I would have left the wheels alone, but it's not my car.

Now get your friend to get a hood that fits his Vette.

Looks like they skipped a chunk of cement across the hood! Put them to death I say. I'd make good use of the death penalty if I were in charge, lol! Vandalizers, shop lifters, all around scumbags.

That would certainly cut down on repeat offenders.

Can we get some more pictures of the Corvette while you're at it?

HAHA! We need more people with that mentality in this world!

That sucks that you got vandalized OP, but the look is so much cleaner than before! Did you figure out what it was that caused the damage? Looks like claw marks from a hammer?
