Wow!, Thanx everbody for the great comments and liking it. Was a gamble, and a very expensive one at that. I did car for my own benefit, but also interested in showing car, as I have friends that do. So hearing all the positive response really helps in feeling car will do well.
Shadow, it started as Cranberry Metallic, then Silver Metalflake, then process, then Blood Red Candy, then Clears...Bonniealien I already bought Chrome wheels and waiting anxoiusly. Very popular pattern and the wholesaler'* waiting on a factory delivery, said about a week........I cant tell you how tired i am of waiting. But theres a nice payback coming
Today I stopped in and the clear coats were sanded down smooth, an so dulled looking you couldnt even see the pattern. Stayed for a couple hours and beers with the Owner and watch the gloss come back as they started the first of three buffing passes, each with a finer compound. Even where the first buffing pass was done, The thing is more deeper and visible than the dried gloss. Cant wait to see it done altogether and Post some pics of it totally done.
