First off ill start with my car. Used to be red. I completely refinished the car while i was attending college. I was trained with BASF products (Glasurit, Diamont, Limco) and i use the same products on all the work featured here thus far. These pictures are before, during and after.

Currently the fenders are in primer and the rest of the car has been spot primed and is nearly ready for paint, minus general prep.

And now for FC3SMurray's

I just did his front bumper, lip, and fender trip pieces. I had to re-shoot his bumper 2 times... First time because I wasnt familiar with the clearcoat i used. It was extremely thin and it ran really bad. 2nd time i had to respray because im fairly certain the basecoat reacted funny with the product that was on the bumper from the first spray. So i sanded it down to the primer and reshot once more. This time i used a clear that i am familiar with. I still got a few runs as you can see. Ill go ahead and attribute this to my own lack of experiece. Temp may have played a part in it as well.. it was a bit chilly but i had to get it done. The runs on the surface are small enough that they can be fixed for sure. the runs in the fog light hole wont be seen when the bumper is on the car so i dont think it should be and issue.

Although im kind of wondering if im shooting the first coat of clear too heavy, which maybe what caused the runs this time around..

Really it doesnt look to bad. Im trying not to be too hard on myself because there are alot of things that i just cant control at this point compared to when i was in school. There are a few more variables when you are dealing with make shift facilities.

Sometime in the future I would definitely love to have you bring my poor car's exterior back to life. Right now it looks cancerous, with the clear slowly peeling away.

Get here soon.

My FB is going to need a spray this summer, if not sooner/later.

Right now the front is half sanded/primered/looks like crap.

Also, when I pick up a new rear bumper cover from my Mazda6, it will need to be sprayed as well!
