    SWEET! The smell of fresh paint is rewarding.....and a bit intoxicating.

    Congrats on the move forward!

    I was woke up yesterday by a screaming wife at 6.30am, and the day just got worse from there. Anyway, my buddy let me use his works little paint booth on Saturday to do fenders. I hope to have hood, scoop and nose ready for this Saturday cause he has to work again. Picking up speed!

    Got the scoop repaired and in primer and the underside of the hood primed and painted. Sorry trey i cut out a hood pad. Took a piece of chalk from the kids to mark it out and trimmed it with scissors. Took about 15 min. Curious how well it will last... I guess we will seeName:  14980060926761230505382.jpg

Size:  135.3 KB i still have to cut out for the scoop hole. I used a different hood since I wanted to keep and hang the original on the shop wall. Also put the bumper on, though I was so disappointed I always had thought it was an aluminum one, i never really checked it. It was painted silver like the cobra it was on. It sure looked like it was aluminum.
