    I met some people at Santa Pod a few weeks ago, more like a month now.

    I had the 2+2 which did the 12.9 :D

    Anyway, thought you would like to see my paint job on my car.
    All the work on the car has been done by myself and my dad helping, engine, paint body repairs :D

    The car was looking a little dull because the original paint job from red to purple didnt go according to plan.

    Thought I would share it with you the new 100% better paint job. Not perfect, but what you espect from spraying outside? LOL

    What you think?

    Rubbed down and masked up. Looking very dull.

    Starting spraying here.

    The finished result

    In days gone by did they not use t-cut for finishing after spraying? if so why can you not do it now and why flatting with wet and dry would that not be more abrasive than t-cut :unsure:

    i think you will find was wet and dry plus soap or cutting compound, i normally have to use 320 grit on a sander to get the runs out,hence i dont do paint!!!!:eek:

    I used rubbing compound on the last spray job but took the shine off most of the places.
    I couldnt do anything with it now as the paint really is just touch dry. it will be tacky underneath
