Pictures of my 78 Camaro

Since I've learned how to post pics on here which was easier than I thought here's some pictures of my first paint job on a car. I was told NOT to use metallic for a first paint job but this was the color I wanted. This is HOK Gamma Gold. Everything else, epoxy primer, primer surfacer & high solids clear coat was Summit brand. When I first started this paint job a couple of years ago someone posted that I should throw away all that Summit primer & clear & use nothing but S.P. products which in hind sight was probably right but I already had everything ready to go.That really set me off. I soon coined the phrase SP Thughs. Anyhow first time painting with metallic was difficult. Yes there are flaws but at least a non paint guy would have to look closely to find them.
Anyhow wanted to thank everyone on here for excellent advice, it was extremly helpful for a first time painter. Thank You!!!

Looks good.
I hope it STILL looks good in a few years so all that hard work isn't wasted.
