See attached pic, give opinions here.

I photoshopped:
painting lower grille black
and
painting the concave part of the hood scoop black

My personal opinion..
dono about the scoop.. but painting the lower grille black will definitely get rid of the 'toyota camry' look of the 2001s..

Personally, I like what you've done to the grill. It looks very clean. As for the scoop, it's a matter of personal preference, but I don't care too much for it. Paint the grill, and leave the scoop as is. Nice ride, BTW

I like the grill.....I did a similar (if not nearly as professional looking) photoshop with the first pic of the '01 I saw....I'm almost thinking that I'd like to put a '01 front bumber on my '99

Gee Nick, where'd you get that idea? I vaguely remember someone suggesting that not too long after you got the Zn...
Obviously, I dig the grille idea. Cutting could really suck, but painting may work.

I'm not too keen on the scoop idea, though, so if you're wanting the black stripe, I'd go with the Kamanari w/ CF strip.

I like both. If you're unsure about the scoop, don't paint it, get some black vinyl and cut it to fit. You could even try some of that faux carbon fiber stuff if you want. Although I agree the Kam hood with Carbon insert would look better.

I like both as well, I've got some black accents too....

Because there is lots of black trim on the cougar anyway (mirrors, headlights, windows, etc.), it looks more natural...

my $0.02....


I'm thinkin of photoshoppin' a black stripe, too...
