    Default How I rung in the new year......

    ....spending the dast day of '13 and the first day of '14...
    The old big scoop hood.


    The new L88 hood



    Wat sanded with 400, primed and guide coated


    Flaws found & filled, then re-primed guide coated, and wet sanded again




    one last test fit, just to be sure, and ready for paint.


    Sealer applied


    Like a tool, I was too busy trying not to mess up, to remember to take pics of actually painting the damn thing!!, But after 2 coats of white, 2 coats of blue striping, and 4 coats of clear, this is what I ended up with. I can't wait to see it on the car!

    Man I wish I could do paint and body, its the last skill for me to learn. Beautiful car. My friend who races in the NHRA has a similar set up Camaro. He has been more than successful with his car. He races a couple of other classes in NHRA as well.

    Hoods on the car!




    I really like the profile change! I like seeing more white up there, and the B-M stripes all tie together much better IMO (no wonder they used these hoods huh, lol). Most importantly, I can see!

    Great job. Who's paint are you using? What shades of white and blue are you using?

    Having done automotive airbrushing, I can appreciate doing a large hood or even a whole. It's a lot of work but man it shows with pride when its done right. How long are you going to let it set up before you cut and buff it?

    Check out my new hood. Super snorkel is hard to see around and I don't like the visor fit. Click image for larger version.
