Cowl hood paint scheme ideas?

Well, I'm getting a new cowl hood exactly like the one I already have in the pictures but before I paint it I was wondering if u guys have any other paint scheme ideas?
I kind of like the two-tone paint the way it is, but always room for something different.

yeah i thought of that too, maybe not go all the way to the front of the hood, maybe curve it off like the middle already is.
never thought about the FX4 emblems, good idea!
Ford dealerships have them?

as far as the paint scheme goes, why not just do the solid color......aint it different enough that you are the ONLY one with a cowl induction power dome?

I'd go with Zach's idea, but I wouldn't go all the way to the front of the hood. I'd round it off kinda like RentonRanger's.

ok how about this? do exactly what I have now, only have the small outlines like on the other hoods posted in this thread. Then have those FX4 emblems on both sides of the raised cowl towards the very back of the hood.
