Installed the hood and spoiler, it was such an awesome day here in Ohio I had to go for a drive and take a few quick pics. I need to do something with the rear spoiler, I am not sure if I like the solid hugger orange on the bottom.

IMO the different colored underside people are starting to do on SS spoilers never works.

But if you like it, for it to not look like an afterthought I think you should put a little more Hugger coloring on the rear(camaro fill ins, possibly replace the z28 with hugger colored badging although I think the fill ins might just do it by themselves)

Hmm, i'm not that familiar with appearance mods on these, so this is the first I'm seeing the different colored underside, but I actually kind of like it. Nice work!

Hmm..probably looks the best with a walk around but i agree with sskull, the shot of the rear looks like it needs something else orange, fill-ins would look pretty good! Nice car

Orange fill ins would look good on the panel. I like the car, its very clean.

OP, where did you buy the hood from?

Thanks for the kudos! I pick up two factory hoods one from a local bone yard and the other one I found online both were damaged and I refinished them both and decided which one to use. They are not perfect but they turned out OK.

I ordered some hugger orange Camaro fill-ins. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks guys as you know lots of time and money into the body work. The wheels are roh snypers and the top and tan interior is all original and stock. I am planning on a few suspension mods and maybe some 3:73 or 4:11 gears next. But the price of gas is crazy. I have the other hood if anyone knows anyone who needs one.

I think the underside of the spoiler would look perfect if the orange carried over to the quarter panels following the bodyline above the tail lights and ending at a point at the end of the bodyline. I'd do a photoshop, but i suck.

I like that idea and had actually considered that. The problem with that is to do it rite I would have to clear that whole panel in order to cover the tape line
