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.

The Ghost/true flames are hard for me to show in a picture.

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.
