Default Bowtie Hood Decal

I found a bowtie hood decal I love. I want to add the one to my Pace Car that was an option. However, the flat silver needs a little somthing. I found this one today that has a black shadow to it. I think the silver with black shadow will look awsome, and the shadow will bring in the Office Pace Car decals I am putting on the ground affects. I am thinking of doing this in place of hood scoops. I think it will be much more tasteful since the scoops would not be functional. What do you think of this pic. ?????

Gives a little 3D look to it looks good, If you do the Hood they always look better with the one piece scoop in the Center of the Hood, which is best if you replace the Whole Hood. This will not be as costly.

You got my vote on that idea!! It would definitely jazz up the hood a little! And kinda add a little "pop" to the Pace Car package!

I had that on my last monte. Everyone loves it and stands out nice at shows. Its a BIG decal. I would also recommend getting the decal protectant from phoenixgraphix.com they its stuff you spray on your decals that is SPF 15 to have your decals last longer as most decals only have a 3 year life and often you see them fading. Using that stuff could get you a couple more years out of the decals but its all about maintainence. I used to use it right after I washed the car.
