yeah i love this damn hood lol.. Functional as it gets too. And its unique.
I really want a one off or crazy unique hood.. i have my eye on the JUN hyperlemon AWD Z hood... its pretty ridiculous.. and i havent seen a single car aside from the original JUN car that has a reproduction on it.

May go that route, may go w the Varis Cooling bonnet ( 2 square holes TS style.. )
or the Askua v2 08 style.

Been toying w the idea of wheel paint as well.. this on a black or at least dark car would be pretty legit imo:

yeah its the same premise.. its just pigmented paint.. Id likely do dip so it was removeable.. black centers, silver rivets.. and ti chameleon lips.. crazy.

Skys the limit, but ill just have to see when the cars all done what colors will suit the lines the best.

Make some larger louver cuts like this one.



The rear fenders look a bit dated. I think if you made an angled cut like the Bensopra fenders it would look more aggressive.

if its not exactly what i want, ill have him make custom one off fender flares, but for now, this is a good starting point.. will be able to see the car painted and alive and then make some changes then.

Remember that i am planning on going wild w the rear diffuser action as well, not usre on the wing just yet, but you get the picture:

I like how it's morphing towards a GT/race car look.

Definitely liking the GT style as well.
But for the rear flares i personally would mix in some sharp edges to go with the rest of the aero style.

And big wing or gtfo!!!
