Apparently the bonnet creases from the front corners of the bulge to the guards when lifted , the bulge may start from the front of the bonnet.

interesting... where did you get this from!! If it's true it could be pretty cool... some one needs to do a photoshop. However I don't think that they would be redesigning the bonnet so close to release.

just remember, FPV said after the SMS, the tooling wasnt finalised for production, meaning they could change thins just like the Bonnet.

How about this then.

Excellent!! I prefer your version over the original.

Any chance of posting the original and your version side by side for comparison on the same post and both in the proposed blood orange and venom?

Thanks

That's a tall order, but I'll give it a shot soon.

I would agree with that if they did make that change. I think on side profile the bulge didn't quite look right but looking at in on the 3/4 and the front on view it looked fine.
