I like the look. you need to put down some instructions on how you did that and what products you used. it looks very good. I showed your pic to a friend of mine who said it had no chance of looking good, fool drives a dodge. But man he agreed also and says it looks proper

I noticed that area start chipping so I put a bug flector on it... If I lived in a less buggy area, I would put a clear paint protector on that area... however, the bug flector works quite well and rarely do I see any splats anymore-- some were quite interesting.... but no more.
PS: I need to bed-line my bugflector as its looking bad (faded/etched w/ bug splats) now...
I like what was done here. I will be performing this look on the hood tomorrow after my trans fluid change, oil change, spark plug change and replacing my master cylinder (not that it is bad but I have a new one laying around so may as well change it since it will be in the garage and my day is planned for this work). I may wait another week to get the cowl done.
Needless to say I have my work cut out for me tomorrow. But then again thats why I got big blue balls

I will post pictures on here and how to pictures when I do it tomorrow. I hope I don't drop the ball on it since it is cool out here already. I figure into using green painters tape and wrapping the rest in newspaper after I tape up. I am also considering using a clear coat but question that move.
You guys have any thought on the clear coat after the bedliner spray dries off?
I had tons of projects scheduled for my truck yesterday so I got them done with a 12 pack of Coronas. I started with a oil change and moved over to the spark plug change at 70K miles, needless to say they were very clean still. I then did the transmission oil change and finally performed the hood painting.
So here are the pics with the before, prep and the finished product. MEATBALL, much respect for being the pioneer.
One thing to note guys.. I should have covered the windsheild as well. I was running my wipers this morning after we got rain over nite and I could hear the abbrasion of the overspray from the can. Its a quick clean but something more to consider. I also used GREEN painters tape as my neighbor a professional painter told me works better than the blue one. The green one comes in a sealed moist container that helps it prevent the color from sticking and picking up on it when you pull it off so you get a clean line and nothing goes underneath.

...contemplating doing this and seeing as how I already bedlined my whole front end wondering how it will look carrying up onto the hood. The only set back is when I get rid of the T someday, people trying to buy it might not like it... hmmm
