Looks amazing. I can't even do that good of work on a car model let alone an entire car body panel.

Looks great Dan!! Very nice work!

I don't even want to think about it yet, as I know how much work it'* gonna be...but I have a feeling when I begin to run out of things to do on my car, I may be doing a similar project like this of my own. Can't let you have the only bad *** looking car lol.

Got it all fitted in place. Didn't take much to line it up, I've done it enough times.

I have a lot of wet sanding to do, you can see a big sag in the clear coat on the right side of the picture. I got the clear real thick so I have plenty to work with.

Gave it a good wet sand. Here is after about 15 minutes with some Megauires 80 polish with the porter cable polisher. That stuff does a great job.

That big sag is still there, but much smaller. I'll be doing some more wet sanding next week when I have time.

When people are willing to pay $700-$800 for a hood, plus shipping.
