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.

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:

actually, take a drill and drill through the hinge into the hood on either side. That way when you replace the panel you just use a small screw driver through the holes and everything is aligned the way it was.

Or just mark the hinge locations when you take it off, takes all of 5 seconds
