I'm keeping the hood on my car I just taped around the sides so I didn't overspray on anything while I was testing it... smooth or not tho I like it a lot better then the blue so imma continue to do the whole car jsut hopefully the 2nd coat will smooth it out

Nice! Maybe I'll do more on my hood and try and clean up the lines. I can't wait till yours is done. I wish the edges on everything I paint wouldn't be all peely lol

Mixed distance. I tried to stay far enough away that i avoided like dots if you know what i mean. Im pretty good at spray painting things just not used to this stuff i guess. Its weird lol

cool, i'll have to swing by and check it out. i get done at 3 on tuesday this week, my 3-5 class is canceled. be careful working on your truck at school, i got a ticket for working on mine in the lot once. but i never got in trouble for painting anything lol. i did a lot of stuff in my dorm i probably shouldn't have
