Update: The $50 paint job, 18 months later

It's been about a year and a half since I completed the $50 paint job and the paint job has held up pretty well.

And, officially, it's a show winner!

That was last summer.

This summer, however, the hood has started to fade just barelly. You can even see the hood bracing making a bix X accross the hood.

A little bit of polishing compound and wax and it should be good as new...
