[QUOTE=Arrowhead] Came out pretty good but it could have been better.

LOL,You nailed it....thats the key right there...Thats what seperates the good craftsman from the great ones...a great craftsman will always want it a little better than the last, even if the last one was perfect.with an attitude like that you cant loose...

'91 Corolla I got for my daughter. Silver from Kirker didn't work (mottled) so I ran down and bought Omni base instead and still used the Kirker clear (Its not very tough clear). Used the wrong reducer (fast) and had problems with gun spitting and didn't get coverage on the doors because of the reducer and low-light conditions.

Learned a lot though !! Had a blast !!
