Cars all painted and coming out of the booth in AM. And then I'll get some good pics outside after it'* buffed and assembled. But I did get a couple shots under the lights that came out.
I wish they really showed how incredible it all came out and the painter mixed up just the right red candy to blend the siver metalfkake into the Cranberry and talked me out of pearls(I'm glad too)...!000% Satisfied with color and pattern. I cant wait to get some good shots in the sun.

Dont they do that by putting thin plastic on the paint while its wet?
I was digging it when it was a purple color but I like the blood red better now.

Gumball they sanded and scoffed the hell out of the cranberry till my eyes bugged out, then sprayed whole car in silver metaflake,
put special vinyl film over entire car and did "secret technique"for pattern then pulled off plastic. How the technique works and why its peels off the metalflake
only where it does I wasnt allowed to see.
I would have thought it was cool just to clear after the silver but when the translucent candy went on it changed from sic to phychotic. The candy brought back the
cranberry like it never left and what it did to the silverflake and depth....I just couldnt stop staring into it.
