I'm about to order a GXP front end and am thinking of repainting the hood & part of the front quarter panel if the chips can't be repaired.

I'd like to add some red accents to disrupt the "murdered out" all-black look. Does any have a pic of a G8 with thin stripes on the side of ridges of the hood? Like this...http://www.hawksthirdgenparts.com/product_images/a/912/9802RA__16629_zoom.jpg

I'm also thinking about red pinstripes on the wheels and red calipers similar to the 100th Vettes.

Your car looks bad ass now!

Maybe try something around the hood scoop where the hood indents. I also think smoked fogs/lights w/ demon eyes would be nuts

Thanks. Just looking for something different now.

Halos are cool, but expensive. I'd rather have something a little more subtle.

I wouldn't mind the paint to be a ghost stripe or use a Kameleon color.

Seen it on the Oreos, but I'd like the red to be more subtle.

The other option would be to do thinner side stripes. The side curve gets larger as it moves toward the front end (from 0 at the windshield to ~2 inches at the front). My rendering matched this bodyline, but I could limit it to a maximum of 1 inch.

Of course, I could also scrap the side stripes and do full stripes on the hood.
