    Here are some new pics.

    Said it was black metallic but came out more of a gunmetal color. I may try tying this color into other areas. Glad I removed the scoop to refinish it. I found it was only hanging on by one stud. Had to reattach the other 3. After. New brake and shift boots. Got these from JF customs and the quality/feel is great. Brake boot was the most difficult part due to the leather being thicker.

    I really like the new shift / handbrake boots and the scoop really came out nice.

    It all looks good. You do have to keep an eye on those scoops. I had mine fly off going down the interstate.

    For sure, I am kind of surprised mine didn't.
