hood vents...not an easy diy

found the hard way to take it off / and install the hood vents..

played around on painting it gold.. just to add accent for the theme...but looking for a carbon fiber hood vents....just powder coated the stock 220wheels im switching to black/red theme sooner.....

for the meantime..IRONMAN stays.

sorry for the phone pix....angle makes the gold brighter

It's a personal taste. That said it looks awfully terrible. Sory about the critical comment but couldn't hold back.

I like the look. I would have went with a less dull gold on the rims so they can pop more. But I think that red and gold is a awsome color combo.

I am glad you took it in good spirit. That's what this board is all about ... comments and opinions. Enjoy buddy.

Get an ironman decal, so others know what your theme is.

I am forced to agree, the gold looks really really bad.

Now if you push the Iron Man theme further, that would be sweet.
