Wow! When you told me you were doing this I knew it would look sweet but the lace is an awesome touch. Make sure you satin clear it when you get it where you want so the rust doesn't take over the whole thing. I may swing by and see this in person. PM me to let me know when you work next so I can stalk your car.

I think a silver base coat with the laced laid down and sprayed over black, then clear coated would look sick on the hood, roof and trunk deck lid, as in the third pic from the top. I am not sure what the whole rust idea is about.

well guys it isnt taking off like i wanted it to so im gonna try to take some more galvanization off it and see if that helps opinions on taking it to the edge of the hood instead of having the edges?
