Jumpin' Jack Flash that looks good.
I am packaging my hood up right now. It should be arriving at your door within 8 to 10 days.


Great job, Bill. Can you take some more assembled pics when the weather improves?

The arrowhead really goes with the flow, and the 3D effect, though slight, follows the natural lines of the hood and car. It'* as if it belongs.

Sun is supposed to break through this afternoon. If it does, I'll ***** it up a bit.

Looks awesome. A LOT better than the primer hood. I can't wait to do my vents.

Whorage for you. Not the best of conditions, but better shots of it than what you've seen so far:

Quick question. I didn't see how you ventilated the booth? I'm going to be touching up my rear bumper and re-clearing it here in the near future. I have a buddy who'* going to school for auto body and has the gun and all that jazz. He'* also painting the front end parts for his 91 camaro that he wrecked, for the fourth time in his ownership. Them damn telephone poles jump right out in front of you doing power slides around town. lol.

Either way, I'll be using the garage at my GFs house, and I'm going to try and find some of that plastic. I just want to eliminate any possibility of any sparks and I figured ventilation would be a good thing too. He has a respirator and I'm assuming a suit as well.

That really does look great. What kind of compressor and paint gun did you use? I'd like to be able to paint a panel here and there in my garage too.

Can't get over how amazing you did on it Will, I need to start practicing with spray paint on some iteams so then I can be able to paint pieces on my car or heck the whole car..

How long it take you to learn it all?
