    RXP-X Hood Painting

    I decided to change to a black grab bar and paint my hood black (like a few others have done) and remove a few decals. Here is the difference. I used a satin black since the stock looked satin. Twelves thought it would look better silver but I was thinking it might be overkill since the hull is silver.

    Comments pls!

    I am having my 04 hood airbrushed with green flames and a 3D RXP logo right now. Flames on the glovebox lid as well. I will post pics when I get it back!

    I like the black. My 06 RXP was the gold and I have it all black now. I got a high flow hood from twelves in silver but I think it's going black too.

    I went with painting the top hood on my rxp-x silver to match the rest of the hood. As I have changed the chrome pieces to some carbon fibre ones thanks to Jon(member ADSR) it all looks pretty good so far. The carbon fibre was just enough to break up all the silver. Currently working on a black grab rail at the moment, trying to paint my current one first but will go with the black rxp one if it doesn't work right.

    Will try and get a photo up for you today to give you a look

    From this place:

    I like the effects he puts into his decals, but they are often a bit too "busy" for my taste. I wish, also, he'd lose that wasp or bee or whatever that thing is supposed to be. I ordered an XP kit from him & I felt he was too heavy on the use of his company name & logo. Like wearing a billboard

    Wow man that looks sweet I was considering going the same route on my px. And was going to cover the glove box with the carbon fiber look as well. Now I know it will look great.
