Ooh, the flames give it a nice touch, not too overbearing.

Very clean, but if I were you, I'd just get the bottom flames. That'd look hella-cool

If i do them, I likely will they are going to come out of the grill and up the hood and out of the headlights and corners down the sides... Right now im fighting the dealership who originally painted the car they think the dirt will buff out but what about the missing clear and 4 or 5 different hue'*

I saw the different pictures of the paint that you took so I looked at my GXP, in certain angles you can see spots that are similar to yours. Its not as noticable like yours though. It may just be because of the metallic paint. Well hopefully you get that all worked out. I love the photoshoped car.

Well like i mentioned before there are last count and I stopped 30 + dirt spots 3 or 4 runs more then 2 inch'* long. missing clear. and orange peel not to mention the different colors.

Invoice said complete refinish + clear my painter and other painters said they painted panels not the whole car.
