    Lets see who is out there waiting for the black hood option.

    1). When did you order?
    2). Build date?
    3). Build number?
    4). Date you canceled the hood option?
    5). Other items that caused a delay ( no allocation, other n/a option)
    6). Updates you heard direct from a source ( dealer, RS, SRT......)

    Not sure how accurate this info is but another member posted today that black hood is no longer an option and has been removed. Hopefully an insider can verify this

    I guess that if that is really the case (I have no reason to doubt this), it puts everyone on a level playing field and eliminates the chance of the "rare OEM Black Satin Hood" car auctioning for a gazillion dollars at Barrett-Jackson in 30 years.

    I ordered the the car with the hood in September, never dropped it, and the car arrived this week without it. No one could ever tell me about the delays or what to expect to the day of delivery. The dealer and SRT both seemed to be in the dark. The lack of communication is my real problem, but it must be working for Dodge.

    The entire rest of the car will be matte black and the hood will be sublime;)

    Mine was removed against my will, and delivered without it. I hope you and others that haven't had theirs forcefully removed are able to get yours. I would like to have had mine factory, but am settling for it getting wrapped. I have seen some that came out really nice, and after reading about taking care of that OEM black hood, I may be happier with the wrap in the long run.

    I think you've missed my point. I wanted a Black Satin Hood just like 80% of other Hellcat purchasers (according to statistics I've seen quoted on this forum) but didn't get one. (See the picture of the Sublime Hellcat in the lower right part of this post with the Black Satin Hood?) Am I disappointed? Hell yes! I won't go on crying over something that's not meant to be right now in spite of how many reasons people have cited as "the blame" for the problem. If I've offended you, I offer humble apologies. I was simply making an observation about the situation. Am I a "great typist"? The answer is "no, just average". Am I five years old? Hardly. Is the endless bitching about the Black Satin hoods going to make them appear any sooner, if ever? Not likely. Get over it!
