It has flaws, WCBF'ers will see them (although it'l have another buffing before then) but altogether, I'm VERY happy with it. It'* actually better than when I bought the car (maybe slightly), and FAR better than it was for the last couple years since i installed the vents.

It'* been nice driving it agian. It'* been a week. Time to tear down the paint booth and clean the garage now. I have work to do on the SLE before I rip the motor out of this one.

I have this urge to paint my *** black and sit on your hood Bill.

I hope you appreciate what a good job you did. That was a lot of work.

Nice work Bill. Looks like it was a fun project! I really want to get professional painting equipment so I can repaint large parts like that too.

I could write one for a 'garage job', but not as a pro like a couple people here. I'm not sure I'm the right candidate for this.

Looks good, but from what I have been told, you shouldn't be waxing fresh paint for like 90 days.

This clearcoat has a hardener in it. It'* a 2-part epoxy clear. It'* dry to the touch in 10 minutes. Waxing is fine.
