    It looks great either way but the hood really completes the look.

    The positive Hotrod ions just radiate off that machine. The very definition of perfection...a historical masterpiece. Congratulations on your impeccable rendition of this classic Hellmet and good luck at the show. The show is very fortunate to have this grace its walls.
