I've ordered a GWE SRT8 with decal delete. I will be installing a TA hood. I think I want a complete matte black hood. What do y'all think? Complete matte black or GWE hood with matte black scoop?

Imo go full black hood, but don't go matte. Do a gloss or semigloss/satin. Will look much better and up to date. Matte just has a tough time working on newer cars in my opinion.

The semi gloss (flat with clear on it) scoop only would look good on the GWE color, If i was to get one I'd do the same that i did with the DY on a GWE. I don't like the all black hood look.

That does look good with the DY.

You might want to consider a matte black hood with GWE stripes over the scoop. Sample of this paint scheme on my DY Challenger:

I like that alot! Going flat black on the whole hood looks like the car is not finished to me. If it went down to the nose (like above) it would look better.
Just by painting a hood, looks like it was taken off another car.

GA, that does look AWESOME on yours. Not sure how the GWE would look over the black like that, but the DY sure stands out

If you are going T/A hood it's gotta be ALL BLACK.
