This hood has been a pain in the a$$! First time I tried to paint it I found a bodywork blemish that I missed. After fixing the bodywork, I tried for the 2nd time to paint the hood only to have reaction between the sealer and basecoat that crinkled paint. So once again I blocked sanded, primed and blocked sanded again :-( The 3rd time turn out to be the charm as the hood sprayed out great. The body is next!
Thanks
Pat

Hope you don't plan on parking in regular public parking stalls. That would give me hurt failure finding a big scratch or dent from some A hole. Looks pretty awesome to me.

I've enjoyed this build since the beginning. You're an artist, the paint work is looking great, all you're prep obviously is paying off! Can't wait to see the body in paint!

The 1st time I drove my fully restored #matching 1972 Pontiac T/A some knucklehead was cutting his grass shooting it out into the road and a rock put a chip in my passengers door :-(

Thanks

Big thanks to a member on another forum As I used his suggestion for painting my dash frame with Rust-Oleum fine textured black paint #7220. Worked great and looks as close to original as I can find. Inside of the frame was painted with Eastwoods detail gray to replicate the bare steel look, but without the factory overspray to keep it light under the dash.

After spending about 10 days wiping down the spray booth I now have the car body in there and getting ready for paint ;-)
Thanks

I’m not a big fan of vinyl roofs but it needs to have one to be a true Bullitt replica.
