    Wouldn't worry about high temp paint unless you plan on perching your truck at car shows and leaving the hood up in the sun :) Good luck!

    Looks good!

    What did you use to clean the surface before applying the paint?

    I just used the blue painters tape over the Toyota emblem & letters & trimmed the tape with a pointed hobby razor.

    Before taping I washed with soap & water then wiped with alcahol.
