View Full Version : 4th gen's and hood bird's?????

I s it wrong for me to want the hood bird decals on both my 4th gen car's?
when i painted my 95 formula i got all new decal's to replace the original,and while i was at it i got a fairly good sized hood bird that matches the design on the side panels.the car is jet black trimed in mettalic silver decals and looks great,all the folks at my local hangout love the bird,2 weeks ago i bought a 98 formula,bright red trimmed in black the door letter's were all messed up so i orderd new formula decal's for it [diffrent design from my black car] and i got a giant hood bird to match the side panel's it's 42" wide from wing tip to tip and 38" tall.my wife raised holy hell telling me i was destroying the car and making a copy of my first one,it will look stupid to have 2 cars with bird's on the hood's.i try to tell her it's just a decal it can be removed without hurting the paint.but i got to thinking and thought i would ask you guy's.....is it really wrong to put hood decal's on a 4th gen i don't recall any with a factory bird on them but i think it kinda give's them a retro look and i think my 98 will look great in red paint with black decal's and black wheel's what do all of you think about this???????????:bang:

My car came with a firebird with the checkered racing stripes down the top It was a shocker so I took it off but Ive never seen another like it. It had overspray the same color as my car NBM along the edges and I wish I would have left it on now. My G/F at the time was all over it with the mullet jokes as well.
My advice is let it grow on her, if its done right Im sure it will. Mine looked factory and I havent been able to find any like it either.
Do it bro, life is too short to sweat the petty things.

Sleak Beaks with birds don't look bad, but ram airs don't look very good.

There's been many threads of this, do a search and pics should pop up.

IF, and this is a big if, you get the right design you can do dual birds on a WS6 hood on the scoops that fade back into flames and eventually stripes; then it might look cool. This is a totally custom thing that I have been thinking about for a while but decided against since it won't make it any faster.:devil:

lol That's a bit much. Fading to stripes OR flames would be cool, but fading to one then the other I think is stepping on Ricer toes since they like to go overboard on stuff like that.

Look what they did with exhaust ;) We ruled the roads for loud pipes, now we get drowned out by that bee-swarm sound:eyes:

There is an article in HPP, they did the application of a later 3rd gen decal on a flat hood T/A vert. They trimed a set of wings off to make it fit. Looked great!

I think i can pull it off with the design i have,it should arrive friday so i will post a pic along with my 95 that already has one on the hood.the only reason i want it is to break up the solid color on that big flat hoodsince i don't have ram air,and the bird is a hell of a lot cheaper than a new hood....

whitdog54
09-11-2008, 08:00 AM
Dmoney's that would look good if it was a little smaller i think. Also that one up top the gold and black, have you seen that complete car? All the gold pin striping, very tacky and over done IMO.

If you keep it subtle though, it should look good.

That black ram air with the hood bird looked decent but I think it would look better with the 98-02 bird on it instead. That looked more like a third gen bird.

to answer your question--yes, it is wrong. You have a modern looking car and the decals are sooo old school---your wanting 2 different worlds and it cannot be pulled off--without looking chessy

you're so right.
You can't have take two things from two different worlds and put them together.

A nice car CANNOT be a fast car.
and a fast car with a v8 definitely CANNOT get good gas mileage.
and a quick car CANNOT be affordable.




no, its just silly! 2 worlds! TWO WORLDS! its impossible.

I think the best looking hood bird is the one showcased in this article...

http://www.highperformancepontiac.com/tech/hppp_090515_screaming_chicken_hood_decal_install_u pdate/index.html

It's from Phoenix Graphix, an officially licensed GM supplier.

I'm heavily considering doing this hood bird on my 01 black WS6.

I think it looks mean with the right bird, but really bad with the wrong bird.

I don't like that bird because it's not the correct bird for the time period. When I decided on the bird, I wanted to make sure it was the current year. That's just me though

Bradfurd
04-15-2010, 10:00 AM
I see your point...but it seems like it fits better (from a size perspective) than some of the other ones. Some of the hood birds I've seen are definitely not official GM designs.

That modded 2010 Camaro T/A is so badass...unfortunately, I still know in my heart that it's not a T/A. I do like that bird as well...I wonder how would it fit on a 4th gen hood?

just don't put it on as crooked as they did.

Just to let you know, that's my car. The reason it's on crooked is because the decal is shipped in pieces, and is a weird size on the hood. I even ordered a second wing because there was a cut in the first one. It's hard to get it on perfectly when the decal is the same color as the hood...
ill post new pics in a few days..

I think gold is the logical choice, but I'd consider something in the silver or gunmetal family. Maybe with some black areas. Unless you are really wanting to match a certain 2nd gen design, I'd consider altering it up a bit. That MRM is such a rare color, I'd really rather see something on the subtle side moreso than a highly contrasting red. Just my opinion, but you asked.

Put mine on last year to go with the scoop. I could not find anyone to do a custom bird for me so I bought 2pc. one from ebay for a '78 and put it on myself. It turned out good but I'll be getting a 1 pc. sometime soon because I can't stand the seam.

I'm really liking the hood birds on the WS6 cars. I've seen a couple at the Nationals last year and thought they looked great. I ordered a full 1-piece custom printed and sized. I'm good at decals but I'll be hiring a professional for installation. Way out of my ability. I'll post some pics when it's done. I went with 42" tall and 46" wide (stock 76' style bird is about 45" x 45" but barely fits height-wise).

I got all of mine from AutoGrafics.com... they lasted about 8 years in the houston weather. I am just now replacing them becuase I am having my car repainted. From my expirence these guys are the way to go but I am sure there are others. When I get all my new decals on I will take some pics.

JHash, I bought it from Phoenix Graphix. They're a bit pricey but you can't beat the quality. I originally bought one of those cheap ones on Ebay and the quality was horrible. The ink rubbed right off it when working out a bubble. The size fit is perfect. BowlingT gave me some good advice to contact a sign shop that does van wraps to do the install. They came right to my house, had it on in about 2 hours and even did it completely dry too. No water or application gel.

Thanks! :) I was a little iffy on doing the hood bird at first but now that it's on, I love it. I had the 30th style hood stripes in black for about 9 years now and got a little bored with them. It was time for something different.

TRUST ME, I have looked into those year one snowflakes. I'm not a big fan of the price, and as far as I know, you cant get them with an off set to run wider tires in the rear. They're all stock wheel depth. For now though, I like the look with the vette rims :)

Thanks to 99TransAmDude's pics, I'm considering a hood bird for my CETA as a temporary change.
I have to get the hood repainted and thought instead of putting the stock decals I have back on to do something different for a year then take it off and go back to stock.
The only problem is Phoenix Graphics doesn't have that bird in the colors I would need. (silver, dark silver and charcoal)

Banditcar, if you go to a sign shop that does custom decals and van/truck wraps, they might be able to custom make one for you in the colors you want. I had a guy at a local car show tell me he owns a graphic buisness and he could've made me the exact bird for half the price that I paid. The color combination you want would look pretty awesome on a CETA car. :)

just got mine put on yesterday. i used silver vinyl for all the little stuff on the car but thought that would be just a little to much on the hood, so i went with flat black. i really like the way it turned out. this thing was a bitch to put on.

Yes, it can be done.

A local graphics shop did mine with the colours I wanted - $125 installed.

Looks great BigIrishLT1. I was thinking of doing the flat black on my 2000 Black TA too. I went with some basic Gold Decals so I'm going to try a cheap Gold bird first to see if it's overkill or not. it's not a WS6 hood.

Thanx, I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I bought mine from this guy (http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/accusednormal/?_trksid=p4340.l2559) on eBay. I got the 1 piece cause I didn't want a line in the middle where u have to match up the 2 pieces. Saw that he has a 3 piece one available with the bird in the middle as one piece and the wings as the other 2. I think the 3 piece would be the easiest to install and end up looking the best. Cause getting this huge one piece one to lay down right was a huge pain. Guess I could have got some scissors and made mine into a 3 piece, oh well now I know. Half way through I thought I was gonna peel it up and throw it away, but we got it done. There is no way I would try and install one of these myself on a ws6 hood.
