Hmm, I might have to give that a shot on my old WJ....The hood is almost completely bare of clearcoat. I've got about a 3" strip going down the center to the jeep emblem and then along the front of the hood. Everything else is gone and the green paint is fading badly.

Looks good.Did mine about 2 weeks ago but it's inverted from yours. I used about a can and a half for the grill, hood, and eyebrows on the headlights.

I was thinking that also. Find a gold that matches the limited gold and trim out the edge of the black with it. I think that would finish it off nicely.

They say great minds think alike!


Here is what I thinking, trim the edge with no black showing, using the gold to separate the black and pewter.
