Wow Bill, those flaring nostrils really give it some attitude now

Well placed.

Bet you needed a couple of beer to make that first cut.

I thought you were going to do this to SLEeper?
Whats up with the swirls/scratches on the hood?

Sounds like he is only half done.
The hood will get an entire repaint.

He should run a poll. Should the vents be painted green to match the hood or an accent colour? ......Gold?
