Re: Summit paint suggestions?

That stinks. That part of the hood on mine looks horrible because it is so soft.

Re: Summit paint suggestions?

Not to hijack the thread but do you think it's worth getting one of those deflectors on the front edge of the hood given they are fragile?

I never cared for the look of them but this has got me thinking.

Re: Summit paint suggestions?

Easy enough.

Is the stock SRT hood aluminum as well? What's the carbon fiber version mentioned above - factory or aftermarket?

Yes the SRT factory hood is aluminum.


For the carbon hood I was thinking black ops auto works but I just checked and it still says "coming soon".

If you really wanted one I'd call them. There are a few other threads that have pictures of a prototype and it's nice.

Re: Summit paint suggestions?

Don't fill the dents until you look into having them "pulled" out.

One can be pulled. One is right on a crease, no way its getting pulled.
