The Challenge
#1
So I am sitting in my garage watching the Video Scott gave me on how to ensure you correctly place your fenders back on, and I noticed my hood was not straight so I took it off and it was good because I was missing a body clip on the hood so it was time to do it right.
I had a buddy stop bye and talked trash about my fenders and said anyone could paint those, and told me I could not paint the inside of my hood without runs do to all the lines and high spots. He would not stop so I asked him what he wanted to bet and he said 20 bucks I laughed and said 1000. He started to back his way out of his hole and I asked him if he was scared of losing that money and he said no.

So.... I have three days to strip, prep and paint the inside of my hood, now this is the only part of my car that has the factory paint on it. So when he left I went from my DA with 80 to my wire wheel and started removing that paint, I will have to get a practice run to make sure when he shows he leaves with lighter pockets,lol..... we will see I love people who open their mouth because it makes them feel good

Just be careful you don't get too aggressive with the wire wheel or DA. You could warp the hood.

Nah Tommy I have been taking just enough to get that paint off. I got the hood all stipped and G&W on it. I was going to paint it tonight but figure a good prep in the AM and I can run some layers. It look pretty good and I know I did not have to go as far as I did, but hey why not.....
