Ok, the Paint inside the hood was getting cooked off. The hood was replaced once before but it was painted with that cheap maco crap. I repainted it with high heat spray paint. I did the same style with my slowrolla but with black and blue and also did it to my old charger with white and black. So heres black and red.
Red, Black and Clear.
I haven't install these yet, im still making up my mind about it, they were on sale.
You can see the paint has been cooked off to almost bare metal.
Cheap after market hood!
Clean up was a *****, used a razor and a flate head screw driver.
Coat one (black, three coats red)
Prep for final two black coats.
Two coats later.
Installed back onto the trep.
News paper got stuck on that one part that you can see but after it cures i'll sand it and touch it up then i'll add a coat or two of clear.
Thanks everyone. It would of been better if the news paper didn't get stuck on that spot and the local dodge dealer had the badge I wanted. I was planning to have the badge on the center of the hood (inside). Just that small bit of chrome really makes it look good.
Well I was planning to do a few things under the hood today but zeus opened the clouds and said "I hate you" then made it rain. When the rain let up to a mist I ran out and unbolted my center tail light. I ended up doing a paint job that I've been thinking about for a while now. At first it didn't come out the way I was hoping for. A friend of mine came over and he asked if I had some left over window tint I used to patch a broken window that had a spider crack (My sliding door on the house). I looked in my paint locker and pulled it out. It matched perfectly. I spent a hour cutting it to size and putting it on, by time I was done it was getting dark and the light was already back on the car.
You can still see the intrepid on the trunk. It's the under coat of the paint. Damn glue took off the paint!
I didn't make the paint glossy. I wanted it to have a semi flatness to it.
While it was raining cats and dogs I got my order of carbon fiber vinyl in and tried it out on the glove box handle. I didn't take any pics, the stuff peeled off after a hour. Next time I will use a better cleaner then windex to clean the surfaces. I did how ever paint my A/C's knob chrome. When it dried it came out a brushed aluminum finish. I didn't take any pics of it aswell. I'll have some tomorrow.
