Default I finally decided to paint my car (step-by-step pics)

Filing the shape first, then sanding




Then primer



Then finish coat

thanks, I only spent two days on it. I think the cabin is too far back. Next year I will take more time on the basic shape of the car, and sand it smoother.
I think I will replicate my DeVille next year

thats just weird. (not that, but whats about to follow)

i had a dream about that car (the itty bitty wooden one, not the big one) last night. except i was painting it, and i realized halfway through i was painting it wrong, id put bonne headlights and taillights on it when it was supposed to be a BMW 5-series . . .

i approve of this thread.
