Wow! i was all ready for a snarky remark about faking it but i'm pretty impressed by how well it came out so i have to eat my words lol. how much time and money did it take though? do you think it was worth it cause CF hoods are getting pretty cheap and then you get the weight reduction[/QUOT
for me it was under 20 bucks all i had to buy was primer and that matting everything else i had sitting around i used baseline paints because i didn't want much of a gloss. if you had to buy all the suplies asumming you had the paint gun and tools id say pricing around 50 bucks to the most expensive stuff costing a few hundred but that kills the puropse of this being a cheap and effective mod
i actually used a jammin' clear which holds gloss good but still gives the hood a textured look, i didn't expect it to come out like that i just got lucky that that is the only clean i had sitting aroundHow did you get it so glossy. That last picture of the hood gives a great reflection of the light.
Someone has seen Monster Garage with the F-150 Nut-Shaker. Wood grain Flames on a blue pick up.Wow looks great, reminds me of a technique painters use to make wood grain they use cheese cloth
