need opinions - matt black hood

I've seen pics of some cars with vinyl matte black overlays on the hood...

just want to know what people think of those and if you've tried them in the past

I'm thinking of doing this but not quite sure yet... can't really find any local cars that have had it done...

thanks

thanks for the input... hard for me to really know without seeing in person but the best part though is it's removable....

any other opinions from those who've actually seen them in person or tried them?

I think in order to do that, you will need some type of theme going on. Maybe the trunk as well...tinted windows, black wheels, etc... But just the hood alone, nah!

comepletely agree. Ive seen it on cars where it works - but I must say that this is a small minority of them.

If alone, it will look like you just upgraded from your late 90s integra to a 6 and wanted to start modding it in the same way. Just my take on it.

However, what I have seen (and LOVED) is the Vorsteiner hood (the vented one). It was on a black car, but looked great. Not so sure how it would look on yours though.

Either way, if its affordable, try it! like you said, if you dont like it, simply remove it. At least you wont have any regret about whether or not you ever did it.

If you're going for the "I'm going to run you over with my car" look, then I'd say go for it.

thanks for the replies... I think I'll stick with stock look for now...

at some point if I do get bored, I might try it just for kicks... but there's other things to do...
