Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

Hi guys, need your opinion. I have a blacked out (altitude style) WK2 and was thinking about adding this decal to my hood.



But I am having a hard time trying to picture whether or not this would look OK (black on black). Any ideas? I am thinking it would add to the stealth style of it. SRT8 headlights are coming soon as well.

Re: Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

im always a fan of flat black on gloss black..... plus, it'll be way more subtle than that silver one.

+1 to flat black on gloss black, though that decal isn't my favorite shape nor do I like the logos, but it's your rig.

I do however, love what Kingmonkey did with flat black stripes on gloss black:

Re: Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

Wow that looks nice. I'm gonna have to wait until it gets warmer here in NJ. Just read temperature needs to be at least 70F for installation.

Re: Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

I agree, the flat black looks awesome (IMHO) on the gloss black rig! Way cool!!

Re: Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

Re: Black Hood Decal on Brilliant Black Pearl?

Looks good on my Trailhawk in Granite with the clearcoat contrast with the flat black. If it fades after 5 yrs, who cares! After 5 yrs with 100,000+ miles you are going to trade it anyhow. I never keep anything with 4-wd that is used off road about 50% of the time here in North Dakota.

I also like fat black on glossy black.
