Wow, with the server upgrades, it looks like I picked the wrong time to ask a question!
Anyway, thanks for the replies guys!
Im going to be painting the hood flat black with DP90.
I think that the black should go quite well with the dark bronze colour of the body.
Its an AAR Fiberglass hood, so its supposed to be the best that you can get, so hopefully there will be no issues with those spots you mentioned!
Thanks again guys!
