Killer Stripes and clear coat (see daily progress)

Here we go, my buddy and i are painting stripes on hood, trunk and side of car. Man i'm nervous and excited at the same time. I will post more pics as we progress.

this is what my buddy does
http://www.texasaerocolor.com/products.htm

6-22-10 a couple more pics, ran into a few snags but got them corrected. man this clear and paint is thin, no wonder it chips so easy. should start shooting paint tomorrow. i'll keep you'll updated.

6-23-10 well we got the black paint shot, looks awesome. We also got the bezels and bowties painted, tomorrow we clear coat.

6-24-10 got it clear and put together, man i'm tired. got some minor sanding and polishing, but thats it.

6-25 close up hood pics add on post 45
