Body Kit & Hood Opinions???

Hey all!! Need your opinions on this hood. Is this Rice or is it kewwwl? I have one coming to me this week for my '02 Stang and I want to make sure before I dump the $$$ into having it painted and installed that I'm not going to get a verbal lashing for even thinking of installing this hood!! I'm a really sensitive guy you know LOL :drive:



Now this body kit is on it's way and will be in the shop for paint on Monday, so I guess I'm stuck with it for now, this is the Xenon:

I dont know about the hood in the first pic and the body kit in the second together, is that what you meant?

The body kit is rounded, and that hood is sharp.

Matt, the hood just doesn't really look like it goes with the body kit! Your stock hood would look better, would look good on my vert too though, lol, same color.

i know what he means tho.

I meant that the body kit is really curvy, and the hood has sharp edges. they just dont blend too well. They're both nice, but not together.

Were Xenon is subtle.

Go Together

If this post is in the wrong place please move it. I tried to place it somewhere where it belonged but I figured someone would pipe in and ask to move it. Anyhow I see whatcha you're saying. I agree with you! What about the Mach II hood? Or this one:

Opinions

Okay, give me opinions on both. Which hood would you go with: the Mach II or the Widow both shown.

I've already decided on the xenon kit for sure. I'll post pics after it's on so you guys can give me a better opinion. I'm definitely leaning now towards the mach II hood? What do you guys think? help.

That first Hood you show, I saw that on a 98 Gt the other week from our Break out of the Cold Cruise we held, it was on a blue car, and he paid like 3-400$ from ebay for it since had gotten insome accident andhad this ins. money.

pretty neat looking, since I had never seen one like that before, the xenon kit you will like, very nice choice, a friend of mine has that and he was just thinking of getting his repainted soon.

Kewl choices, cant wait to see the outcome!
