Looks good and straight. Pretty slick too, But th' trash, Dayum.
I know,... it'll sand and buff. But inna booth, I would expect it to be cleaner.
quick pointer, when you think it's clean, go away for a bit. Grab a pop, then come back, and blow and wipe again, "rinse, repeat". 'Till you come back and it's actually clean, then wipe it down with a clean lint free cloth, dampened with rubbin' alc.

Looks good. Let's see th' rest of the car. when yer done.
Well, I agree totally I shoulda stripped, but I'm LEARNING, that's the only way I've ever really learned...the hard way unfortunately.

As for the trash... I'm painting in my garage/ booth...its not high tech at all.

I'm going to get better filters for the air intakes and maybe try painting with just one fan on instead of 2.

Luckily 99% of the trash just settled on top of the final coat. Did I mention this is my first time???
