Well...technically it did make it in the booth, so I did what I said, but the brighter lights in there revealed some stuff I wasn't really thrilled with. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

I was really hoping to get it in sealer primer tonight but I guess that will have to wait till tomorrow. :-({|= :-({|= Frown

Paint came out alright for my first solo paint session. I focused too much and ran the rear apron a bit and will end up redoing it #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o

Otherwise, for what this car is, my skill level, and how quickly we tried to turn this around I'm pretty happy with it!

Yeah I think so. Maybe if I had gotten it right away but it was too late. I was really paying attention to matching the contour of the decklid and ended up pushing a ton of paint into the apron. #-o
