Supplies! Errr.... Surprise! Got a new hood a while back and finally getting it done. My old hood had a few waves in it from the time I owned the car, so this was definitely something I needed to do.
So, the garage will be empty for a while. Mystie and I dropped the GTP off with my painter today. He is shooting to have it done by next weekend, but I told him to keep it as long as he wanted since it looks like the weather is going to turn bad again this coming week anyway. The hood has a few things that need corrected and he is going to take care of those as well as repaint my front bumper cover and blend it all with the rest of the car. He is painting the entire underside of the hood for me and he is also going to trim off the underhood mat retaining flange thingys. Since I am not going to use a hood mat, I didn't see the point of leaving them sticking out. He also agreed today to spot in a scratch that has always been on the right rear of the back bumper cover.
Here's a few pics I snapped yesterday. This hood is completely unpainted. It's never even been mounted on a car until yesterday, so it's as new as new gets. When it gets back I'll just need to fab up some grills for the heat extracters and Reptile is coming through for me (once again) with a brand new drip tray.
