Well the mouth-breathing ,brown-shirted ape-like thugs at UPS brought me a little prezzy yesterday. The box literally had about 45 "fragile" stickers pasted all over it. If you look at the corners of the box, you can see they must have dragged the carbon fiber hood along the floor and boogered up the corners. They want to pick it up and inspect it and blah blah blah. I'm thinking since those corners will be painted anyway, I'll just fix it with some fiberglass resin and respray it. Have you ever had a used item damaged by them and what was the outcome? If it was brand new, hell yeah I would return it but since it's used, I think it'll just get shuffled around and nothing done while I wait 6 months to get it back.

Well it looks that shiny because it's wet. I'll give it 3 clear coats when the weather allows (raining now). BB how does yours fit? There is definitely a gap on the driver side so I may have to shim it over with some washers.
Seriously man........the sh*t you do is ridiculous. Yes....I am drunk by the way. :D
Mine didnt fit right so I adjusted the fenders and everything is fine now.
OMFG.....TK the hood looks great, I wish you live around my way so you can do my shit 2. :)
Since I really don't remember posting about the hood last night, I'll say it again. That is going to look great on your car. Great job!
Hey TK, I remember when I posted pics of my CF interior you said you really didn't like CF, now you got the hood...whassup?
Yeah I wish someone lived near me with mad skills, I have to "try" things out sometimes

I guess I'm a lying sack of shit. :D
Are you sure that was me? 'cuz I even tried to do mine up with cf but I bought the wrong one (too thick) and abandoned the idea. Since then I found a good source for pliable cf but it's expensive. A small sheet cost me 65 bucks and I'm gonna cover the euro plate spot on my bumper to mimic the hood.
Alright.....you've had a few days. Why isn't this hood on your car yet with pictures???????
good call where are the pics you lazy bastard!!!!
My clear coating skills are not up to par. I can paint like a madman but 3 attempts have failed so far. I'll have to take it to my buddies shop.
Cmon Thrill, lets see some pics with the hood on, and BTW i juts purchased an 01 CLK 320, like 10 days ago, my fist car, lol. wanted to see how much you payed for that hood
Wheeeee! I bought myself a new gravity fed spray gun. Maybe this weekend.
WOO-HOO!!!

Second coat is still wet and I'm gonna give it another:




I've learned one thing in life, you're only as good as your spray gun:

Looks good, want to paint my car?
I need to get a junker to practice on. I got a little orange peel on my 5th coat but not so bad. There is a funky green color that they used on the early 60's SL's that I would love to paint my car. I wish I could find it now. It was an advertisement for some kind of garage flooring and the guy had it in his garage. Outrageous color.
