Cool New paint job

This was supposed to a little later in my project. That is until this person backed their mini van into the front of my vette. I figure I might as well get the whole thing painted. Oh, the hood was a mod I did last year. I was going to need a modified hood due to the height of my carb plus intake.

Here they are:

"Because of the one-pointed time awareness in which the conventional mind remains immersed, humans tend to think of everything in a sequential, word-oriented framework. This mental trap produces very short-term concepts of effectiveness and consequences, a condition of constant, unplanned response to crises." Liet-Kynes - Dune

Thanks. The hood is functional as well. I also replaced the polished chrome hooker headers and side pipes with ceramic coated hooker headers and side pipes.

You have one sweeet looking car. Everything looks excellent. Glad you went with ceramic pipes instead of chrome, looks much better. I'm not a big fan of chrome.
