    Wow, that must be some serious work. How much time did it take you? I repainted a hood with spray cans from www.touchuppaintonline.com and that took me 4-5 hours in total including all the sanding and everything else. The paint came out great, it was just a bit of work

    Great looking paint! I've seen some "high" dollar paint jobs that don't look that good!
