It is hard to get it to blend smoothly without a gun. I was just suggesting that you paint the scoop red. The scoop looks good color matched.

I see, since you are trying out ides why not try two stripes running the full lenghth of the hood. Make them just outside the scoop itself.

i feel like there is a very very slight vibration at highway speeds, but is very noticeable. however, i did just have a tire rotation. my one front tire is brand new and the other is slightly used. it could be the difference in tread depth causing it.

that's what i'll be doing as well. painting black over the dip and clearing it. gotta get my dip thicker though. ah what the hell they are stock wheels and they won't matter when i get new ones, except for winter wheels.
