You gonna make a hard edge out of those touch-ups? In other words, are you going to mask the hood right to the angled edge and just spray the edge? If so, you'll have a 'line' that you won't really...
Congrats on the new acquisition! Glad to see that one went to a good home.
Would you consider shooting the car with clearcoat? It will be 'easy' at this point; just scuff and spray. The car is already apart and the clear will add the durability you need.
Fixed pics (mostly).
Stellar work, as usual. :thumbup:
Did you consider acrylic urethane? While it's true that the isocyanates are nasty, the urethane has better UV resistance. You'll likely have faded paint...

Eric: granted, I'm busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest, but I've been changing ONE REAR SHOCK on my car for, like 2 months. You have a car in your...
What an embarrassing thread. I guess I've been away long enough to have held onto the little bit of patience that I have.
Try to be nice, guys. Let's get our forum back to the way it used to...
^ Smart man. :D
I'll be rolling in around 10:30. Planning on leaving Hunterdon County, NJ at around 8:30 (I know....I'm SUCH a late sleeper. :P) with sciroccos4life. Is anyone else interested...
