    I'm finally done with bedding and fitting and sanding ( 180 220 400 grit paper )
    Joel told me to use auto clear to finish it. I bought a spraygun for $40.00 from TCP Global and some good 2 part clear.

    So I mixed some up and gave it 2 coats, then going to sand it and give it 2 more coats and sand again and 2 final coats.

    Now we're talkin'.

    Looks great Tarey. Wet sand it with 800, clean it up and then shoot it again. You may have to do that twice to get it where you want it. If you want a satin finish, get a hold of me and I'll tell you the easy way..

    Man you just can't beat a wood stock like that ! Very nice.
    That hood looks just like an ole ford truck hood to me .

    Thanks for the nice replys.
    Bigbuck that is the hood of my 91 GMC suburban from being in the hot arizona sun. I have completely redone everything on that truck but the body work and paint.
