Very nice.

You are right, we need better pics when you get home and can upload them from your PC. The car is so shiny from all the Zaino that I can't even see the scoops!

These pics do not do it justice... I will be doing more, the car looks badass.

Anyway... John (bodyman) said one week <edit> for zanio </edit>. Surprised me actually.

Rksport makes great FUNCTIONAL hoods, all of their products are of great quality. Here's a Cavalier I built using their components. Glad to have a new 2005 GTO on order, but built this car to show people an american car can look just as good as an import fwd. I will definitely be putting rksport products on my goat.

The hood looks great.

Must be so used to seeing pics of them tripped together that no one noticed the Yellow Jacket in the background ;)

Buddy from work drove me to pick the car up :)

I just ordered mine. A few questions...

1. Any problem with winsdhield washers?
2. Latches/hinges bolt on cleanly?
3. Can the underhood insulation off the stock hood be attached to the RK?

Thanks.

1) Jury still out on that. In fact I struggled over asking him to fill the holes. They are a little loose, however we haven't sealed them yet, because we want to make sure they are aimed correctly and will work. At the moment the passenger side hits the windshield correctly, and the driver's side is aimed low. Once they are adjusted correctly we plan to use some silicon sealant.
2) Perfectly :)
3) No, different shape on the bottom due to the functional nature of the hood.

One note about the hood... the mesh in the scoops is a bright silver metal. I had my bodyman paint them to match the color of the grill. I will get better pics of them.

Tomorrow I will get better pics up. PROMISE :)

Thanks. I figured the washers could be tricky.

The hood looks great, I'd love to see it in person. Hopefully we can meet up at GLD some time and compare it to the mpd hood. (they look very similar to me)

Very similar indeed... but I have to admit I loved yours from the moment I saw it. Only wished it was daylight then. :D
