Looking good e9coupe! The faux patina work looks awesome. Are you going to "rust" the bare metal spots with muriatic acid?
I did, but it didn't etch into the metal enough to stay when I took the edges off of the paint and then cut it with rubbing compound. It's been in my garage the whole time so it's not "weathering" at all right now. Instead of chasing it I'll just let the next owner decide what direction to go.
Here's a photo showing a little etching. This is when I was cleaning up the edges so you can see the "clean" areas on the metal.
