i got my hood back from my friend who works at a body shop. its painted nissan titan black, it has a lot of pearl in it which gives it a blue tint. i had the hood and the tank cover painted, and had the grill painted the brightest red he could mix up at the time. pics don't due the hood any justice. looks better in person 8). i had painted the hood with fusion paint the first time and spilled gas on it. fusion paint just curls up if exposed to gas (thats my experience). also included pics of what i had to do to replace the steering stem and bars that got bent on a minor tip-over. not pretty :(. let me know what you guys think. i was thinking about doing the hubs the same color red as the grill and pc the wheels black but not sure yet.

Shit, you stole my idea. Damit! JK. No, seriously, I have been thinking about a black hood (mine's an 07 w/stock blue) for a while now and now that I see yours, I want it even more now. I think that looks sick. The red looks tits too. I just recently put black rims on my 700 and I love the look. Now, I'm trying to find an all black seat cover to replace the black/silver. I'm going with the black and blue look from now on with every after market part. Black and blue looks so sick!!! IMO.

Wow, that looks great. Nice job!!!!

Here's my cheaply painted ( Fusion ) hood. Didn't turn out too bad, but you get what you pay for. Might do something different over the winter months
