Real nice job with the hand painting, that will add a lot when you pop the hood.

Yes it is.if you catch it before it gets to that point it can be freshen up.or they still sell them at the dealership,paint it black and it will look new for years to come.

I'm not worried about mine. My S10's and Pathfinder's both look really raggedy lol. The caprice's looks much better and it's 28 years old lol.
