clean off the hood and let it dry then apply the paint stripper with a brush(wear rubber gloves and do not let this stuff get on you IT BURNS ALOT) apply it on thick going in one direction NOT BACK AND FORTH IT WONT WORK ON THE PAINT CORRECTLY. and let it set for at least 30 min.

when it has set for at least 30 minutes take the scraper and scrape the access off then reapply the paint stripper till it is down to bare metal or fiberglass (use sand paper to take off paint that is left over like the edges and hard spots) then wash off access stripper very very well you dont want any left it will destroy your paint.
almost no more paint.

Looks good so far, you spray all that just right out of the spray can?

its all out of the spray cans i had to stop it got too cold last night which messes with the paint but when it warms up in a little bit i will put clear on and put a picture of the finished product. btw its not going to be as reflective as normal paint jobs i dont like wet sanding clear coat but if you go to youtube and watch the video about wetsanding clearcoat you can do that and make it have that super reflective look. mine will be semi reflective mainly lights will reflect.

The real thing is you have to take your time with it you cant rush it the second you try to rush is when you mess up and it looks like a "at home job" you know
