I just got my RK hood for the Mag, and I was wanting to possibly do something different than just OEM Black...but I want to keep things subtle with a good muscle car look...so nothing TOO flashy. Maybe doing the cowl part in a different tone, or with added flake or something...Not sure.
I find it hard to add color to a black car. I can only afford doing something to the hood at this time, so hold the ideas for two tone jobs etc...that will have to wait.
PLease guys...I want to get this done soon, so let your ideas fly!
Thanks and Much appreciated...PS photos would be great too.

So I dropped off the hood today at a local shop..they are going to fix the damage and prep it for paint...so I have a few days to come up with a paint scheme. Terry, I loved the scallops on HLY CRAP's ride...
Good to hear from another Jax guy!
The shop does alot of candies and pearlecent flake jobs...I was thinking of doing the cowl in some sort of black/silver candy, so it's dark and has subtle highlights on the top edges of the cowl from the sun....and to have them airbrush the 345 on the hood in Red on each side.
Maybe highlight the vents on the hood in a scallop shape ?
It's tough without seeing the finished product...and I'm not that good a PS!
Keep the ideas coming guys!
I already have the underside of the hood figured out!
How about just the scoop done in flat (satin) black as it was done in the earlier days?
I've been contemplating this idea...I really need a photochop of this before pulling the trigger. Any help?:)
Do you really want to emphasize fake vents? Not saying it's good or bad, but it'll probalby make a difference in your decision on that one.
Yeah...I was was just talkin...I think you are right..I really don't want to emphasize them.
Hey legmaker..What shop in Jacksonville is doing your paint?
I dropped it off at C&G Customs off of Atlantic Blvd. I met a guy who had a sweet green candy job over his Mag, and he recommended them.
