Default What should I do about my hood

So my hood's paint got destroyed in the fire. I have a emerald 00'. I have a mazdaspeed decal across the front of the hood. My idea was to sand it down and leave the decal. Paint it glossy black and then remove the decal to reveal the factory emerald in the mazdaspeed lettering.

good idea?

discuss

Unless the rest of the car was black, I'd say it's a bad idea.

Strip and repaint, the sticker idea sounds like a badone.
