I like your username! I’ve always had a liking for fames too! This was my first fox body, made it into the MM&FF in the mid 90’s.
Your hoods going to look great!
It’s an old old name I made up back in the Yahoo Messeger days… kind of borrows from the slang by the New England area. “Man, that ca is wicked awesome”. So I came up with Flames Are Wicked. Always loved classic hot rod flames on 49-50 Mercs.. Rockabilly.. etc etc

So a change of plans.. I found a Cervinis 4 inch cowl already painted black about 4hrs from me for not much more than repainting the other hood. I also wouldn’t have the downtime of the paint shop. So I drove down there with no hood.. car filthy from the rain and farmers ruining the roads.. felt like I was on an episode of Roadkill (love that show). I actually gotten thumbs up on my trip lol.

did a quick once over with some soap.. there’s more rain coming this weekend sadly.. I’m so muchhappier with this hood anyhow. The other wasn’t terrible but very rough in comparison. Not to say it couldn’t be just as nice but it’ll take some work by a good body tech. I’m gonna sell the red one cheap.. anyhow, some quick shots after the wash..
