I wanna do this on my 720 hood.

 

What kind of paint do you guys recommend? My 720 is already red/burgundy so i would just need to get white paint.

post a pic of your truck.

 

as for brands of paint, i tend to go rustoleum or duplicolor. but just pick one of them and stick with it. dont mix brands.

 

do you still have a good clear coat on your truck or is it faded?

 

you may want to sand the clear off where you are going to paint if so, and re clear after you paint it.

that stupid mack truck bulldog is off and replaced with a regular Nissan hamburger emblem to cover the holes. Colour is a bit darker in person.

to tell you the truth with how nice your paint is, i would go to the junkyard and find an extra hood to paint on. just got to find a nice red to match your truck.

Ended up rerattle canning my car when my brother was visiting me so we redid the rising sun on my door, my friend and my brother took artistic liberties with the sun. Don't think it's to bad.

lol a the few who didn't seem to measure at all. I love the underhood idea.. esp for cars that may be too nice for the job, but still want it. That's what I'll be doing on my Z now that this thread has motivated me, not that it's too nice or anything :P I'll post some photoshop renders up some day soon, too. A key that a lot of people seem to miss is that the rays and the negative, white space should be the same width.

 

I think the re-work looks much better, freekwonder!

No, those have been long established as dual gatling guns.
