Just wanted to share our latest project with you. Tony dropped his car off with the intention of doing something a little different with his hood stripe. Not only did he want something a little different but also wanted top notch quality. After numerous emails and phone calls we came up with a game plan. I will show you what we came up with and the steps involved.

Getting the hood ready for paint. With this stripe design, the entire hood must be sanded as we are burying the stripe under the clear.

Once the entire hood has been sanded down we then layed out the stripe design.

Then layed out the carbon flash metallic. Automotive exterior Hood Bumper Auto part Automotive lighting

Now it's time to do our ghosted stingray. For this we chose a color that allows you to notice it but still remain subtle.

And this is the final product after wet sanding and buffing. Smooth as glass.

We also did a few smaller things, like adding some carbon flash on the roof to continue the black.
