LOL!!! Thanks Brent! Yeah it wasn't bad at all.

Finally got some Acapulco Blue on this thing yesterday. Gotta work on smoothing it all out when I feel like it's cured out enough to do so.

Hood scoop is now fully installed and just need a little bit more working in and clean up on that as well:

Thanks,

Nice colour! Looks like my GT.
This will look splendid when finished.

As long as there isn't any metallic striping in the paint you're good. The thing about metallic is people tend to get too close and get visible stripes of heavy and light coverage. Yours looks good

A clear coat is about the only safe route, in't it?
