because they need to paint the whole Hood
in order for the paint to feel smooth inbetween the color change in the Hood
. (kinda sounds confusing) but the center stripe..or whatever you want to call it will blend into the texture of the carbon blue. on the other hand if they only painted a stipe down the center of the hoof on top of the carbon blue you would be able too feel the different coats...btw...any other suggestions on the color of the stripe. i thought silver would be cool, but what do you guys think?
