Tinkering with Bonnet Buldges

Well my bonnet needs a fresh lick of paint, and im tinkering with the idea of slapping a buldge on it, just a sublte one like that of an M3. As shes an ef fairmont theres already the raise in the centre that profiles out from the grille, so i was thinking of a buldge with that height, which is only 2cm at most.

What do people think, is that a bit to ricey, or if done right will look good? I reckon it would suit the Fairmont bonnet.

Anyone want to have a go at adapting an M3 buldge to my bonnet in photoshop?

Re: Tinkering with Bonnet Buldges

I rekon it will look pretty good.. i'll considered doing the same with the XF bonnet if it ever needs a respray one day. They already have the subtle raise on the bonnet but one a bit higher would look great i rekon.
When I get home i might give it a photoshop job.

Re: Tinkering with Bonnet Buldges

I disagree wholeheartedly with that definition ford.boy. It could be just as easily argued that Mag's, aftermarket exhausts .... anything other than a Camry, is unnecessary.
