Well last week i had ordered in my spoiler and hood..and when they got here this morning I had been dissapointed. They sent me a HUGE block for the spoiler and a seperate one for the Hood SCOOP. They didn't send me no goddamn hood!

So as Im digging through the boxes I see the instructions
"CUSTOM WING AND HOODSCOOP" is the title of the little 3 page booklet. So I open it up, a small carving knife falls out! I start reading. All it tells me "Carve out the design you want with our all new custom wing and hoodscoop kit!".

So I said fuck it and fitted it onto my car. This is what i got so far.

I had to pack it down pretty good for it to seal properly on my hood...but you guys get the idea. I'l carve it out later tonight and see how she turns out :D I'm so exited to look like a real GT-Four! too bad my widebody kit never came in yet :(

please dont move or close this topic, I feel this is such a unique custom upgrade that everyone should see it :D

PROGRESS COMPLETED!

Unfortunately the hood scoop slid off the front and shattered on the ground. too bad, too. The hood was the part i was looking forward to do the most.

Damn cheap american products!

But the spoiler..

PROGRESS PICS:

After i cut off the back and some of the front to give it a sloped look:

lol!! I love the spoiler! can you drive it like that?

Soon as the roads clear we're gonna try it. It'l be frozen on by then

PS: I tried it about 2 months ago but didnt do it right, and only came out with the 2 posts. They drove fine for a week. This one is built RIGHT, frozen right to my flat-lip spoiler. I'm confident that if it doesnt get retardedly warm like its supposed to, it'l survive much, much longer.

Dare I ask what you used to inscribe "GT-4" on the side?

Thats awsome. Maybe sell the idea to a bigger company for mass production. I'd be on that like butta on a roll.

I used a normal marker to inscribe GT-4 on the sides.

Just pressed and it wrote in the snow :D

Here's what mine turned out like;

Some punk kids came and destroyed my last spoiler the last storm, so I am starting to rebuilt it...but the snow is too much for me to handle (Otherwords, the snow will make the wing too heavy to hold). So that i finish later.

hahaha, your hood dimensions are sooooo wrong, there's no way your engine is going to get the air flow needed for your hp gain. Maybe you shoul dconsider a headlight mod?

Yeah I know I got a light out. I replaced it not too long ago but it quit.

PS: I dont plan on changing it in this rain/snow shit either.
