I was told from the start that this hood was ugly. I kept telling everyone that they were wrong and that this hood is good. No one believed me. I installed the hood unpainted and it fit perfectly. Now people were really starting to get on my case. All I kept hearing was, "You ruined your car!" "Put the stock hood back on!" On and on and on it went... In one ear, out the other... I knew what I had and I was happy.Now folks, I got good news and bad news. I'll start with the bad news... Before I begin, I just want to say something. Anytime you put money into a car to upgrade it, there is a chance you will NOT get that money back someday. So be careful how much you invest, because like I said, it's like throwing your money away.Also, it's hard to maintain a show car, especially when it's your daily driver! That's why it's very important to have a beater or a back up car ready at all times. I wish my other Camaro was running at the time, because what I'm about to say messed me up good... here's the bad news.Driving home from work one day, a dump truck hit a massive pothole and spilled some of it's load in the street. Not sand or pebbles, but big rocks! Not knowing what was going on further ahead, I'm speeding up... It's a two lane street. I'm in the right lane behind non other, a tractor trailer... I'm trying to get in the left lane so I can pass it up, but I can't since there is a car. All of a sudden I hear the horn blowing and I see the trailer of the truck in front of me swerving... All of a sudden I see a rock roll out from under the truck. I couldn't swerve out of the way because of the traffic, and I couldn't stop because I'd get hit from behind... and before I knew it, CRACK!!!!!!
