Paint in C Springs

Well as you might have seen, I recently posted an ad for my old hood.

I got a killer deal on a used scooped hood, but it had more than the usual paint chips. I naively thought I could take care of them with touch up paint but quickly found out as I was trying to blend it, that I got in over my head with that.

Blending with 2000 grit sand paper started showing primer rather quick. And at this point I think I'd better have someone paint the whole thing. Top part at least.

So is there anyone in the springs that does paint work and would like to make some cash?

Sheepishly in over my head again,


Just give me a call or text.

It's not mounted so I could leave it with you.

Let me know.

Got it handled; there's some dirt/bugs in the clear, but with 4 coats there's room to wet sand and buff... and it was sprayed in a dang garage, after all.

Thanks again Dan, next we'll fill those holy fenders you've got!


and I have the stickers to prove it
