Will do. Here's what I should be able to get with remaining body. I can live with. Minimal wet sand and polish.

the fact that you went as far a 220 and didn't burn through buffing means there's material to be had.always a good thing.

should we hire Tony to re-paint our G-bodies? he'd probably pay more attention than some autobody shop

Well it's been almost 2 weeks since I've posted. After much practice with the gun I have it as close as I can get it. Much much better than original. Yeah this is full re paint. I should have started a thread on how not to paint a car...
Still some orange peel but after reading so much on the subject I came to the conclusion that it's almost inevitable.

looks good Tony.looks like it was worth it.with the better repaint there's less sanding/buffing to be had.that's a good trade off.

Alright guys and gals it's been a bit since I've posted. Progress is slow but it is progress. Finished up drivers side fender and still working on aligning it to the door. Not 100% done but feels good looking at it in place. Passenger side is next. I can't get shots further away because I have smaller paint booth setup to right for remaining paint work.
