Hood colour

What do you think? hood was blue earlier. I used Renovo hood colour reviver, was worried it might be uneven and look awful but the results are excellent after just one coat. Will give it another coat tomorrow.

Looks fine, but I thought you were talking about the "hood" , as in frunk lid. I guess that's the "bonnet" ?

I was talking about the roof, we call them hood's. The creases absorbed the black better, should look better tomorrow after the second coat.

Divided by a common language, lol.

Looks good. The top was originally blue?

another divide in common language colour (<---pulls a spell check on Firefox lol) and color.

Yes, the top was dark blue but faded a bit. Looks much better black, had the car two years and never liked that colour (or color). Anyway, I would recommend Renovo, certainly refreshes the car.

They put our steering wheels on the wrong side too.

The hood/top looks great. Silver paint with a black top is a classic combo!

In regards to UK culture, give a salute and a "Good Morning" to the magpies for me.

Here is a reference for my American brethern: Saluting Magpies

It's great that I have found a product that works well, it looks even better after the second coat.

Never heard of saluting Magpies before - very strange. There again I only just found out why people over here say bless you when you sneeze - it's one of the later symptoms of the black death.
