Didn't sand it, ran out of time.

Flipped over and here'* the top now. The Epoxy is still a little sticky so I'll sand it another time.

Was going to have a friend paint it for me, but he wanted $100. Hmm, he'* using my shop, my compressor, my paint. Why not just buy my own spray gun and do it my self. Now I can say I did 100% of the work on this hood. Also opens up a new area for me.

Now that musta cost you a pretty penny... but nice lookin gun. Glad to see you DOING 100% of the work. Painting is awesome and makes it alot easier when you can add something to your "Yeah I can do that" list

great job so far... keep it up
