Any one have any tips for painting a hood? I'm not looking to win any beauty contests and dont want to spend any money to have it done professionally? Will spray paint be ghetto?

Get screen printing paint, mesh screen and rubber roller. Cut stencil and roll paint on.

My thoughts too. Methinks this would not be the preferred method for painting a snowmo hood. :)

Ghetto Fabulous!!! You should airbrush an eagle or something equally bad ass!

Its all about the surface prep and finishing coats; you can paint what ever just prep and seal it good.

PS: I was totally serious about the eagle.

Whatever you decide in terms of technique, just make sure there is an eagle involved in the final design.
