Oh well. I'll get it going upon return. Stay tuned for Natural Pearl Green in a month or so!

Keep the pictures coming guys who have theirs installed! They look amazing!
Yea your definately not having luck in the shipping area. The fella who brought mine did a good job but im in Tennessee so who knows which companies are subcontracted out to ship. Good news is, 3rd time is the charm lol.

Yes I saw the ONE pic you posted in this thread. But here's what you said in post #205: Yes there is a place for the hood prop and yea I can post some pics. Latch was pretty simple I'll show pics of it too. I tried last night but it was dark and the flash drowned out the picture. The wife stole it today so when it comes home i'll show some under the hood

Based on your comments I mistakenly expected pics of the underside, hence the joke about without pics it didn't happen. And then you tell em I need glasses. No biggie though.

Holy sunglasses Batman that hood is shiny!
Any tips for mounting the hood latch and spring? Just screwed into the fiberglass?

PS: Your engine bay mentioned something about simple green and a water hose. LOL

Yea just screwed in and then I put some fiberglass reenforcement and resin over everything to give it added strength and a smoother built in look with just boating left overs I had. Kinda hard to see once it got painted over.

Yea the engine is ready for a bath BIG TIME. I am ashamed at the dirty little secret that hides beneath the hood lol. I already bought some engine cleaner though just waiting on the motivation to kick in now lol.

I'm sorry if I missed this, but can I assume this will work on a 2010 as well? And how is fiberglass vs. steel for holding paint, durability, repairability, etc.?

Nothing sands and repairs quite as easily as steel. Steel holds up the best as well. FB and carbon fiber are expensive to repair and very few people know how to do it well.
