Default Accent Hood

A very insane hood design, altghough i was a little skeptical before building the hood on an accent with normal skirting kit... the end result wasnt that bad, and the finished product was much better than i thought. Very extreme indeed for my taste, although the owner of the car was totally tripping on it!

The Accent looks good, except for the red grille. Otherwise detailed works like the bumper and bonnet vent look GOOD!

what car is that behind?! Octavia?? Superb??

As a hood, it looks good but, it's a little big for the Accent, IMO. If the Accent was slightly lower and broader, it would have looked great.

Something like this


Or maybe a bit more radical like this one

Wider looks so much better, infact the owner really wants to get a widebodykit done up but since he lives in Ghaziabad, a suburb of delhi with the worst roads possible.. it isnt turning out to be a viable thing for him. but widebody kit with this hood would have rocked the car. thanks for the pics shan2nu

Thumbs up

i have checked work you have done before
good thing is you have pics to prove it
that accent looks hot
i would think otherwise the grill is something i liked
(i have wierd tastes)
but the bonnet is surely a job well done(pat on the back)

the wider and broader accent loooks scary i would have never crossed ahead of it

Note: why did you not post pics of the Octavia i would love to see it
some detailing atleast

Yes it does. The moment i saw that pic, the first thing that came to my mind was "lower and wider". Ofcourse, it maynot be possible to widen the body to the extent i've done but, even a slightly wider body will definately enhance it's presence.

That is how a mean machine should make you feel.

Hey AP,
Very neatly done up car there.It looks masculine,except for that red grille.
The car should've been a bit wide,probably front and rear fenders should do the job.
Try and post some side and rear view pics too.That will help immensely.
Does it have an Evo spoiler or a double deck spoiler??

Looks very mean.. Though the color of the car isnt that great.. Would look really scary from the front if it was a little lower and had a black color hood and some fog lights.. Fogs really give that dont mess with me look.. Especially those Hella 1000's
