Go ahead. What do you see with low lighting. I have to paint some more so I would love to hear what you see now so I can correct when I go back in to paint.

I ran out of paint on the drivers door.. Seems that when you have primer on the car you need a little more paint to cover that up. I didnt paint the bottom of the passenger doors because I painted the body molding instead while they were off the car. And the rear door handle I dont know. It looked fine when I took off the masking. It probably is the lighting on that picture.. Hey check out the passenger side bumper on the underside.. Looks like I missed that dont it?

I still have to paint the drivers side door thats why I have no pics of that. I also have a check engine light from the couple change i did so im not in any hurry to get the door painted. I have to replace some intake gaskets first. what do ya think so far?

the orange peal is very very light. I panted the car on a windy day in my garge so I think that may have contributed to it. 20" momo italia..
