So i ran into a weird problem with the paint. I was mixing the reducer into the basecoat and it seemed really runny for some reason... I thought maybe it had something to do with a difference in brand.

Im at this point still plannin on using Limco base on the car unless the paint rep sends me up Diamont to replace it. But anyway. I went to spray the front bumper and it was almost like i was spraying just black water. It even ran off the corner of the bumper which is outrageous... so monday i will have more news and hopefully later this week pictures of the finished parts.

I have those same stupid push dents in the back. Luckily I don't a ton of dents, but I've got the custom gator skin too, and actually mines about 350 times worse. Haha

The funny thing is, most 2nd gens. I see have dents there. They were all more than likely pushed at one point in time.

Worse?! your car must have a terminal paint job.

Good news is none of that is really as bad as it looks!

...except for the places on the rear bumper you werent sure of.. those spots look like a really bad half assed plastic repair attempt.

Your car looks pretty straight though. Im curious to see whats under the paint where you said the previous owner worked on it. sometimes those spots are tragically bad

Kyle: If I don't see progress tonight, I'm defriending you from my life! Haha

And Zach: Yeah. My paint has no chance of repair. Sad because aside for a few dents on the doors and push dents, the car is flawless. Just zero clear on the roof and deep scratches up there.

Alrighty.. here are the pics of the front and rear bumpers, large part of the TII skirts and the MS front lip. I still have the main car body, door handles, front pieces of the skirts and side mouldings to do.

Ill have to admit that black is a bit harder to spray.. i just think it has to do with not being able to see the metallic as much in this color. According to the paint rep its only 1% or so of the mixture. You definitely cant see it unless the sun or some sort of bright light is hitting it. The makeshift booth im in also isnt as well lit as id like it to be, but oh well

Leave feedback if you like. Enjoy.
