    So today my hood I had ordered 2 months ago arrived, I was prepping for paint and had a thought.
    Cars completed with the optional satin hood are the hoods first painted body color and then sent for satin black? If this is the case you will see body color stone chips if you get any, kind of annoying.

    I'm not sure if there is body color paint under my black hood. I have had cars painted and stripped. The satin black finish seems very thin and no evidence of any body color on the edges, bottom or sides. I can see why the original hoods were rejected, the work is amazing. The finish is first class on all areas of the hood.

    As far as rock chips I just won't get too close behind other cars.

    Leave the hood the coating with a black primer so if you do get a chip it will be less of an I sore compaired to a bright red or green chip staring at you

    Pretty sure the hoods are not just painted over the original colour that we paint them

    I looked at them pretty hard and the hinge material still looked sharp on the corners

    Well the cars are shipped, to the black hood shop, with body color painted hoods so you take a guess from there.
