I left off on the last step with some really nasty orange peel on the clear coat. I really wanted to take care of that, so I ended up sanding the clear FLAT with some 1200-grit sandpaper. That was last night. The shower is a great place for wet sanding.
We left off at Part 1 with a really nasty primer coat. Well, not super nasty (it could have been worse) but definitely far from smooth.

Alright, first of all, you bastards should have gone too. It was a blast as usual, the group (myself and Naki) got our cars nice and dirty while practicing some techniques.

And for everyone else, hope you enjoy the pictures!… Read the rest of this now >>
