    i did mine in cow.. but it was a 75 datsun B210 hatchback.
    if you use he handles you can get it works out a lot better. and do it in your garage if possible.

    Re: Spray paint: Who\'s done it and what color?

    Did you spray it outside? Was it windy, even a little bit? From the looks of it I bet the wind was blowing and the color can't lay out even.
    I found that out the hard way! I thought it was the paint or the can I was using was defective but it turned out to be the stupid wind!!
    Good Luck

    Hey MTPockets
    Where did you get the snorkel at? Is it for a Chevy? Or one of them J##ps? oops Never mind I didn't read down far enough. Cool ride by the way
