Default split hood

i believe a car should look and perform fast. ive been to almost every xmods site and ive never seen a split hood, so i decided to make one myself..
1. i cut my hood in half

2. then i sanded each half down and test fited the hinges

3. once i was satisfied i glued the hinges in place ...

..any questions
