    I'll have to check on the color but Jim says the hood scoop is off a Ford Mustang. He's not sure of the year.

    Maybe some of our Mustang experts can identify it?

    I guess I need to look closer, it's a Cobra Jet scoop and I call myself a Corvette fan, terrible😏

    Looks great. What does a "high spot" look like after the coating is put on? Would one describe it as butter on a half slice of bread and half the side doesn't have it?

    Ever seen an oil slick and the rainbow effect? Thats what a high spot usually looks like. Its darker and has a rainbow effect of sorts.

    I was at that show!

    And I remember seeing that car and noticing the paint looked really good. I didnt realize it was done thursday night!

    There were lots of nice vettes there, but few with paint that was swirl and defect free like that car and my 97 Camaro SS (which got no love from the judges).
