Not perfect by any means, but better than my uneven primer. I will redo it...one of these days.

after seeing my hood in the daylight...
i hate it.
too many creases, bubbles, crooked lines, etc.

its freaking hard to wrap hoods... esp with that many contours. and my heat gun decided to burn some of the vinyl...
back to the drawing board....

the CF part doesnt look too bad... but the green looks horrible. textured, crooked, lots of creases/folds....
i might just remove the green and go from there. only problem is i glued in the "vents" already.

Boosted Zetec's need good tunes to run and not blow up or that's what it seems like. They can handle boost just fine. 250whp capable in stock form sounds pretty good to me. The SVT can handle 300hp stock.

My wife just bought ticket to go see the June Indy car races at Texas Motorspeedway. Get to see the Rally Cross race with a good view of the gap jump.
