We opted for Classic Industries' 2-inch steel cowl hood to replace our beat-up flat hood. We scuffed it, primed it, and rattled canned it with some white paint that wasn't Dupli-Color. As a result, we now appreciate Dupli-Color's fan spray pattern nozzle, which applies the paint a lot more evenly than the brand X we used. We did, however, come to our senses when we had to refurbish our irreplaceable one-year-only '68 Chevy II hood lip emblem. We used Dupli-Color Instant Chrome. We once saw a bumper painted with this stuff, and it really looks good-short of a re-chrome job.
