    Ya, we busted our asses to get it done, long days. The hood wasn't bad, it was pretty straight.

    The real fun started when we had to lay out the stripes to the correct dimensions. Keeping the 2 inch gap down the middle while making sure they narrowed at the right places.

    Believe it or not just starting to finish since 2000. Have a quick question. What should I do with the few spots that were high and
    sanded the gel coat through. Been blocking down with 100 and will slick sand and final block again.

    You can apply the slick sand and block sand if that will correct the problem. I would apply a sealer over the slick sand before applying color.
