im not as happy as i was planning to me...but its def better than before...

the blending trick was the hard part... and u can see it didnt go well...

i already buffed the **** out of it...so im not gonna bother anymore...

it was more of a test to see if i should mess with any other places...im not going to...

the whole car needs a repaint...

Not to bad though. I bet it looks 100 times better from a distance
than a white bald spot.

Not bad at all.......

You can't tell from a distance.... and even up close you'd have to be looking for it.

well for someone casually walking buy the "blending lines" will look like a big water spot comming down from the moonroof. That was my first though until your before picture loaded. In which case I knew what they were. The only other way to tell is the lack of deep clarity.

All in all you should be happy with the results.

My dad did that with the rust spots on the lumina. Came out pretty good. He is foing to do the fender and roof when I take it home next. Not sure what he used, but it blended nicely. I'll find out and let you know. Maybe it'll help you get the lines more even.
