Did you brush paint the red, Daniel? I thought you were strictly an airbrush guy.

Looks a heckofalot better than the stock casting.

The red is airbrushed. I did brush paint the fenders black to save some time.

It looks like brush strokes on the side of the hood. Must be in casting.

To me that looks like scratches left by a coarse sandpaper.

The casting is a bit rough. It will clean up with the satin clear coat. The photo was processed and sharpened within an inch of its life with my phone's editing software. The HDR settings tend to amplify minor color variations.

Here is a different angle of the hood:
