    I just installed my cowl hood and im stuck at a crossroads right now. So what do you guys think?

    A) Paint it blue like the truck
    B) Leave it black
    C) Paint the edges of the hood blue but leave the top black

    I think it would look sick black IF your truck was not two tone. As your truck is two tone, color matching the blue would look best in my opinion. That's an awesome hood too, by the way! Nice choice.

    I was just out by you at the Warhorse.. Anyway paint it to match the truck....Maybe some strips down the center like an SS

    Paint match it. If it were me I'd do it two-tone to match the truck, using blue everywhere on the hood except the angled parts where it rises up to form the higher, center section -- on those angles I'd use paint-matched silver. But that's me...

    That is a sweet hood. I would paint it all blue. If it was a solid color I would say leave some of it black.

    Thanks guys. I love the two tone look, but the black hood just does not fit. I was going to get the vents in the back (the swiss cheese vents) painted silver. I have 5.3L Vortec logos that will go on the main raise of the hood so I feel ill get it painted straight (matching) blue.

    Thanks thats what I originally planned on doing but had so many friends say leave it black. I have red 5.3L and silver Vortec emblems that will go on the rise and i think will make it look sick

    Paint it, your friends are wrong, unless you like the ricer look. Nice hood by the way, I like it.

    I also say paint to match, but the center raised section should be painted silver, IMO. It would look so bad ass not only will any ricer in front of you explode from too much awesome, but random chicks will run out in front of your truck and flash you, and not because your headlights are bright or anything, but because they just want you to see some boobage. But, if you don't want to see boobage, you should just leave it black.

    I agree 100% with SurrealOne, that is exactly what I was going to suggest and then I saw that he had already. And your friends are wrong or jealous and they don't want your truck looking any better than it does now. :lol:Two tone can look great if done right and people like SurrealOne and I have very good taste. :rofl: Good luck and yes that was a great choice on the hood.
