    If you can't look back on your younger self and realize you were an idiot, you're probably still an idiot.

    spent friday night and most of saturday painting the hood. 3 coats of epoxy primer applied friday night. went back out saturday at 7:00 a.m. and wet sanded the primer with 180 grit, 240 grit and 320 grit. i then applied 3 coats of gloss black base coat about an hour apart. i then waited a few hours and applied 3 coats of clear coat. i will let it cure for a few days and will need to lightly buff out some orange peel.
