pretty cool stuff.
i'll probably go the conventional route and have a body shop repaint the car.
i got one quote for $1,000 to repaint the whole thing. my neigbor's friend owns a shop close to us. i'll see what he says when i'm closer to wanting to paint it.

The hood on my 1990 V8 is going to get this treatment on the hood. Maaco
quoted me $300, a "real" body shop quoted over $700.
My neighbor painted his old 4Runner in the driveway with a compressor and it
came out pretty decent too. I was going to do that, but this roller
business is even better, especially since it's just the hood. It won't
clearcoat thing like the rest of the car but it's a 1500 beater for the GF
for winter so I think it'll do very well.
