with those tyres, do you get much spring rubbing on the front? My brother had to limit his lock with his 35x12.5 MTZ's, not by much but they still rub the springs.

So I picked up a replacement hood last week, and it needed paint. I could have just painted it red to match, but i thought I would do something alittle fancier.
At first I was going to sketch a skull or something crazy and paint it, but skulls are overdone. So I did something alittle different..
First was to blow up the insignia to make a masking. Check out the Rastorbator if you ever want to blow up an image across multiple sheets of paper. Here we have the insignia covering 15 sheets... i think it will fit perfectly:
Next we have to put a base coat. Im going to do a red insignia, so I laid a few coats of red down, then masked:
Then i taped the insignia in place, and carefully traced it with a razorblade.. cutting through the sheet, and the masking tape underneath.
After removing the left over stencil & masking, this is what we got
You can probably see some of the red paint was lifted with the tape. Kind of pissed me off, i guess my prep-work wasnt as great as it should have been. Oh well, it will all be covered with black.
A few coats of gloss black
And after a few more coats, I removed the left over masking, and viola!!
I'll let it sit in the garage overnight and continue to dry, then install it on the truck.
Extra Credit for anybody who can tell me what this insignia is from

You may notice there is a strap that runs behind my grill. That is holding my hood shut. I think I am going to have to invest in a set of hoodpins soon.
Soon I will be forced to do something for front & rear bumpers.
