Installed the newly painted cowl. I forgot to bring the wheel pants with me (duh!) so that will be tomorrow.
The cowl turned out OK, but not as nice as I had hoped. I don't think I sanded out the primer well enough, so some of the paint/clear coat was a bit pebbly in finish. I wet sanded with 1000 grit paper (that's why the upper cowl has a bit of a hazy look to it in the photos), and will next wet sand with 2,000 grit paper. After that I'll finish with a polishing compound. Hopefull all of that will bring out a better finish.
