I seems to clear the hood by a few inches, am I right?

The hood does take up a little bit of the perceived available clearance, but it still looks like it should be plenty.

As for the car as a whole, I got 2 words for you - nice!

thank you guys! there is a decent amount of clearance from the hood to the bar. it actually did not fit at first i had to modify the bracket of the bar so it could line up with the bolts from the strut. but after all is said and done it came out great and you can feel the difference.

Nice! Looks nicer than my GM STB! Although no mods other than some pieces of foam to dampen the rubbing on the hood (almost cleares!).

thanx everyone!!! i really appreaciate the positive feedback!

jamestg6gt07- The bar only wound up costing me 104 bucks so price wise it really wasnt bad at all.

geewhiz- For the lower chrome grill im using just your basic chrome strip that has 3m tape on the back of it. it comes in a roll. im pretty sure you can pick it up at any autozone or pepboys. i bought mine online cause im lazy.
