You have to buy a Gnome, this is my new gnome that Zach got me for my b-day

BTW: the grill will change soon to match the hood. It took me long enough to decide on how to paint the hood, so I have to decide now how to paint the grille

very nice Justin.

Why wax the hood so early after painting it? I thought you should wait at least a month for it to fully cure.

The hood was baked at 140 degrees for 3 hours. When i worked at my uncles body shop, we would wetsand and wheel painted pieces as soon as they were done being baked.

with base/clear you can get away with it, not with single stage though (or so i am told)
