I was skeptical, but I must say, I'm surprised. I don't know about longevity, or how it looks up close, but not bad.

yea we are going to do the trunk possibly today if not then next week. as far as longevity. we all are intrested in that. the edges are kinda choppy but after we wet sand it all should be good. we also want to put some vinyl pin stripes along the edge that should help it from peeling. for rattle cans i was VERY impressed.

thanks all it was a fun project. we still need to wet sand and buff it and we also need to do the trunk yet. but at least we have the front done.

Wouldnt it have been easier to pull the hood off instead of masking the entire front end?

to take it off and then to get it perfectly realigned when putting it back on it probly take just as long as throwing a few sheets of newspaper on :therethere:
