I'm digging the silver carbon. My personal preference is a stock looking silver carbon hood though.

In time when money comes around again.. i would love to get silver carbon hood/fenders and trunk.

Liking the car a lot. Just some suggestions....

Bigger wheels and drop the car some. Bigger wheels will raise it up a bit and then the drop will get rid of wheel gap.

Paint the center section of the front bumper black. Just the little cross bar. Also paint your bumper supports black behind the mesh on the outer edges of the bumper.

Hood looks great I think. I'm even diggin the roll call on it.

Car is already dropped about 2.5"s from stock and with this bumper i struggle to not scrape it everywhere.. wont go any lower (without air ride or something..which i dont plan on sinking the money into)..Cant go bigger wheels as they already melted through the wheel well plastics when the tires are turned a lot.. I plan to paint the bumper and supports all black when i remove the bumpers but wont be doing that till the winter when its off the road!

I've seen those hoods before on SRTs, they turn an insane yellow after awhile, if you haven't already re-clear it before it happens to you. Car looks great though :)

You need some lower side skirts bad. Looks off with the kit front and rear bumpers.

Otherwie looks good. Take off the rollcall though.

actually he's a member of team third gear, just to get that right. I don't ever recall neoncanada's show team attending any cscs events or events similar, however I could be wrong

He's president of neoncanada and shows for our team... and yeah he's a really nice guy, good buddy of mine actually, I was going to buy that hood for my srt.. but then thought about it, and figured it wouldn't look proper, I'm most likely gonna buy those wheels I think though from him

Car looks pretty good. The body kit has been done cleanly.

I love how the silver CF goes with your car now! Much better than the stock CF SRT hood did. Good job! :thumbup:

I think I'd rather see your old rims back on than those new chrome ones though.
