Picked up a used painted Raptor hood for less than half of what it would have cost me to buy and install a new one. I'm very happy with how everything turned out even if the paint is slightly off in some lighting (not too noticeable in person). I tweaked the fitment a little more after these pictures and painted inside of the grille area black, so as of right now it looks even better than in the pics:

Swapped in an LS1 for less than $3,000 in 3 days. No biggie.

Cut, painted, and polished some things and put a mirror under the WS6 lower airbox. Sorry for the blurry pics:









Also a more updated shot of my car, since the last ones in this thread are somewhat old:
