I'm working on a Ford Ranger Splash that I shoe-horned a 5.0 and 5-speed into. I lowered it and added 17" wheels from the Revell Subaru WRX. Its got all the typical custom touchs, shaved door handles, mesh grille, side exit exhaust and tinted tails and I knew the factory hood wasn't good enough. So I took the hood from the Baldwin-Motion Camaro, cut out the scoop and grafted it on the Rangers. I filled in the divet in the center (it was an L88 style scoop) and I think it looks pretty good. I just need to sand it one last time before clearing it. What do you all think?
