    As the road winded it's way down the California Coast, the scenery changed a lot from oceans to trees, from flat to mountains. Very lovely :)

    A huge fail on my part: none of the pics ended up in RAW format, like I had originally wanted. Apparently, the camera won't remember that one setting in this one mode I shot in, so I didn't know to set it to RAW every time I turned it on. That last pic was supposed to be an epic sunset, but it got ruined by the JPG processing :(

    At the ToyotaFest show, I won the medal for furthest driven! Which was good, because I was able to hang it from the hood and put my front license plate there as an excuse for how dirty the car was (only dirty car in the show lol).

    Took some pics after the show, though the light was too low.

    Touché. What's the weight savings over stock anyway? Can't be as drastic as my car.

    lol yeah my hood isn't quite as large as yours lol. The stock hood works fine, but I put this one on purely for looks. So obviously painting it would defeat the entire point of the hood.

    Hummer got to see it in person finally
