The only things preventing these from going back on the hood:
1. Got one more coat of wax to put on the hood (going to do that now).
2. Paint is drying on the little nuts that hold the screen to the vents. Silver on the top-visible side (to match the screen color), black on the bottom (which is actually the top of the nut).
3. Pissing rain right now. I think I'll move some stuff farther into the garage, and tear down at least part of the paint booth, then pull the car part way in.
4. Forgot to pick up some low-tack sealant for underneath the vent flanges. Going to do that right after the last coat of wax on the hood.
It WILL be back on the car later today. I will also be re-polishing it in the spring. I think it can be better. Even with the imperfections, it'* FAR better than it was the last two years, or just before that when the clear started flaking off.
Almost back to this:
