Changed the Color of My Hood, Does It Look Good?

Hey guy's so Iv'e been trying to find ways to spice up the looks of my car and to make it look good with its weird color. I figured painting the hood black or buying a cf hood would work really well, but I am not to sure, I'm hoping you guys could give me some extra feedback. Should I paint it black or should I keep it stock color?

I photoshoped my hood to give you guys an idea and also myself, unfortunately my bug deflector was still on the car so I had to get real fancy and photoshop it out of the way, so the hood looks a little blotchy.

Let me know what you think

Removing the bug deflector is definitely the first thing Ill do, and bronze rims eh? That actually would look pretty sick.

Yeah, I wouldn't waste your time on the hood. Drop it and put/paint some nice rims on. Bronze or chrome are the only colors I can think of that looks good.

I support the opinion on dropping the car, definitely the rime !!!, and with out a question take the "bug protector" of the hood and IMO if you planing on doing something to the hood, DO NO PAINT IT BLACK looks really bad, is like faking a CF hood.

I'm sure a dual tone car with the green or what ever it's called would be good. Just not with black.
