You are not being an ***. Yes this is my first time doing body work. I have no real knowledge in body work nor paint. I didn't have the proper tools to do body work so I did my best. I knew it would not come out perfect, but I'm happy with my first time doing it. Plus I'm no show car. I am slowly building this to be a weekend worrier.

The hood stripes are not a silver. I could not get the right lighting for a good pic to show the true color. The color is cloud gray.

And what brand is this cloud grey ??
I assume it is a satin color as opposed to using a satin clear over it ????
By the way......... Very good tape off Job on the stripe

Industrial Imron from Dupont a quart kit was $70. Its not the best paint i know but i took my time on the prep work (which is everything with paint) and it came out flawless. 2 coats and its perfect sharp lines beautiful coverage. It stuck really well. Only time will tell how it will hold up.

I found out after I sprayed it that my friends grandpa uses it to paint his farm equipment and it holds up fairly well for the abuse its put through. Only he sprays 4 or 5 coats.
