The hood is real & at this point functional. (Im working on a box that will have the filter to make it look better when I open the hood. The bumper is photoshop.

i think instead of asking about the heat down there we should teach the phrase "when in doubt zoom out" or grab a friend and have him take the picture from further away

Not necessarily my style but definately props for craftsmanship

That piece on the bumper will actually look great IMO! I can't think of where I've seen them before, but certain sports cars have very similar shaped/ribbed pieces on the back. It looks nice.

The hood was just a mold out of my Trans Am.

Too bad your Bonne is NA.
Mine is faster than my Trans Am.

Can we have a pic of the hood underside. Did you cut it open or just scab it onto the top?
