With the hood getting it's first coat of the gray and then clear coated I can see from the flash there is a few spots that the blue came up but this will be taken care of when I'm done.

First was using the flattener in the paint to kill the metal flake to a dull gray and then using it in the clear coat also to keep the gray down after it will be buffed out. The blue will come back as this part had no flattener in the 7900 clear. A lot of learnig the steps on how they gone about it to get the over all look of this car is a real challange.

Also getting more on the motor done tonight as I did the pulley for the power steering and the new box locating it to the drivers lower side. This is just high enough to get the coil packs in place between the frame and the motor.

doing the plug wires and fuel line that is missing on the intake for LS motors. You can see the plug wires are angle to the front of the motor as this is where the coil packs will be at.

Hood is now drying and with every thing painted on it. The lines are the same weidth and spaced out for the edge of the front of the hood and the rear so it all stays the same. This painting is really a learning part for me using the flattener in both the paint and clear coat. But at the same time you can see what the under side of the hood will be shiny like this as Bob did not flat coat the clear for the under side of the hood or the floor pans and such under the car.

Tonight's work was to get the hood done on top and wet sanded down and polished out, also did the nose a little more and looks a lot better now in the air duct and the two parts are the core supports so I can get that part done.  The hood also is a lot duller with out the light hitting it then it's showing.         

 

Thanks for watching this build its been a lot of work and fun so far.

Brute Force- update as I get the core support done and air duct scoop put in as all one part. This lets me slide the radiator and oil cooler up from the bottom in place. Also did the hood pin locations and you can see the hood also fits flush like it's suppose to.

I see you are making quite a bit of progress Chas, and adding a lot of neat details to make it true to the real counterpart.  

Since the main body is still in primer it might be a good time to shorten the nose from the kit's RS type longer length to Brute Force's shorter Standard type (before it gets painted of course).

 

Just out of curiosity, why did you paint the outside of the hood before the body?

Mark i'm just doing the hood as if I screw up the paint on how it was done doing the gray and dullner in the paint and clear I can replace the hood a lot easier then stripping the body.  The gray on the sides of the body are done in the same way and was not 100% sure on the mix of dullner to the paint and clear and how to get every thing to look right.

 

For the nose im really close on getting back to it and start getting it shorter and trim it down. I did fix the air duct better and looks more real then how unsquare it was before.

Was able to get the under side of the hood painted this weekend, unlike the top of the hood with the two different clears this one is just all one clear and full shiny look to it. I do have a few spots to fix and will be easier to do as I can progress in this part and make the hood pin parts.
