Finished first-time paintjob

So after all the help you guys gave me, the least I could do was show you all how my first paintjob turned out Rally Red Metallic in PPG Omni with Concept Clear, some SEM hotrod black and far to much bondo, you know?













Thanks again guys for the tremendous amount of help and knowledge.

A first time paint job like this isn't just getting lucky pulling the trigger on a paint gun, many steps needed to be followed to get this result, passion and the willingness to listen and learn I find many times are as important if not more important than the product used or the attitude that "I know it all' before we start on a project like this...again, Kudos on a job well done.
