    Looks good. I think I would just 2 tone it with like a dark Jade green metallic that would look sweet!

    Ford deep jewel metallic- sprayed the first coat this morning. I was really disappointed in myself. I should have done black primer. I ended up getting it thick in spots and thin in others. I'll shoot it again tonight.
    I threw in the towel on the bodywork. After 3 rounds of fill and sand, I threw both middles up. I don't have the patience for it. I want my garage back, and the car back on the road!:(

    That's why I hate a conversation that always comes up around me

    What do you do?...... I'm a body man......oh you paint cars how much to paint my car? It's not that bad.

    Happens all the time. Now a day's I just tell people I don't dose work yet they still insist on going on about how good there crap is and tell me how easy it is to do. It usually ends with them not liking me lol

    clutch,
    next time tell them: "if your crap is so good, it shouldn't need work".... and: "if it's so easy, do it yourself". works for me, and they never bother me again!
