    Thanx....and fun
    I have given myself a deadline. I want it in for clear and the install started by the 1st of July. I need to tear apart the front fascia of the truck, clean it up and repaint the bumper before I install the hood, so this is the fun stuff...lol

    This is going to be an awesome job. The first skull has set the tone nicely.

    Well....I have just found out some news that will either move my deadline up 2 weeks or will set it behind by a month. I will have to get painting if I want to get this done.....
    I just received a call from my surgeon and he has me booked for the 20th of this month. I am going to have the 4th operation on my left elbow. He wants to try a new procedure which will anchor all my moving parts so I will stop ripping everything apart. He is very optimistic and says it will (might) allow me a little more movement and less pain.
    There is a 6 week recoop time but hopefully I pick up the airbrush before then....

    Good luck and hope all goes well twood! It's nice of your doctor that he arrange the procedure and hope for recovery. BTW the skulls in the textured background combined with the 'tribal-shaped' frame is amazing! :thumbsup:

    Looks like you’ll have to get cracking Buddy! Good news about the surgery though, that sounds fairly optimistic.

    I managed to get the skulls done on half the hood. I need to get going.....
    10 days and counting before I go under the knife.....I doubt I will get the candy on by then...

    The last 2 pics are with the shop lights off to show how much brighter the skulls will be after candy compared to the silver back ground....I hope...lol

    Thanx everyone...
    I got the center skull texture mostly done today. I Still need to smooth it out a little . My plan for this has also changed. I am doing the side flame licks in Candy 2o blood red and am now going to add an orange transition to this center skull. I will do red on the front blending to an orange at the top.... Hopefully it will add a slightly different color to break up all the red ....and it will also look good against the base yellow

    Holy Moly.....I finished and now is waiting for clear. I have decided to send it to my local auto restoration shop for clear. It will be better than I would be able to do at home.
    I can't believe I managed to pull this off....just 3 days before my operation....

    IMG_2855 (2).JPG Yellow candy on top of center skull...will see a slight shift to orange that will hopefully show better when cleared. The very least it will be brighter....

    It is all wrapped up and ready for the final step. I am hoping to get it to the shop for clearing before I go for my surgery on Wednesday.....

    Amazing! That turned out fantastic Twood, the Candy colour is amazing, really nice deep Red. Perfect timing as well Buddy. Best wishes for the operation and a speedy recovery.

    Thanx.
    I like how this red looks over the silver and black back ground texture. I did a cleared sample of it and laid it on the hood of the truck outside, and when you step back it almost looked black. Then as you walked closer, the red skull starts to show up and then it all hits the light and it doesn't look black anymore. lol ... My original plan was to just keep the flames black against the yellow. I am glad I went with the red candy. A
    lot more work, but well worth it. I can't wait to get this cleared. I have it covered just in case it has to sit here for a couple of weeks.

    I am going to do the same tribal flames down the side of each front fender. I hope to stop just before the door.

    Thanx and I will be painting in no time....

    The count down is on....oh, so much to do and so little time....
