1979 Trans Am W72 4-Speed Project

Hood prep, repair and primering

As received hood bird decal.

Hood bird decal condition detail. It was essentially baked/melted onto the metal.

To remove the hood bird decal, I used this high speed angle grinder with several Sunchaser "Super Disc"s.

Grind, grind and grind some more. Here the decal is half removed.

After removal, the decal still left a "photo" of itself on the hood!

The hood had a pretty significant dent near the front.

The hood with dent repaired and primered.

The hood painted with gold bird decal applied.
