Finally got my cobra hood painted

Its been sitting for almost a year now, so for christmas I got it painted. This picture is in the dark, right after it was put on. Its needs to be cleaned also. I'll try to get some better pictures later. I would like to get the back part of the nostrils painted black, but other than that what do you guys think?

I didn't know the Cobra hood would fit. That's pretty cool.

yea, my 03 mazda had that black around the windows, I'm glad this one doesnt. I went to the body shop that painted the hood and they are going to paint the nostrils black for free in the morning. I also get my borla muffler put on tomorrow.
