Did all the work myself including paint. The hood scoop is an early Camaro tunnel that I cut down and molded in not functional and the flames are a home mix of blue ghost pearl and white pearl suspended in clear.The only thing I'm worried about is that hood flex so I open from the middle only and I'm thinking of a linear actuator.

That's awesome! I'm not usually a fan of flames or graphics on any car, but I have to say that looks great! It's not over done and fits the car perfectly. Great job!

I think it looks great. Maybe a little heavy to call them ghost flames, or is that just the name of the color? You got them trimmed very even to "mirror" on both sides, which is VERY hard to do unless you have some experience.

If you used SMC filler, a good urethane with flex agent and did not cut into the factory frame the flexing shouldn't cause you any trouble for many years.

I think you deserve to treat your-self to a beer after that job. :thumbsup3:

Is your front scoop functional?

No not functional and blue ghost is the name of the pearl it's a smaller pearl. Thanks for the comments
