I ran over to the shop to take a look at my car with the painter. He wanted me to check out all the stripes to make sure I'm happy with them before he goes any further. Next he will etch the stripes, tape them off, paint the white, pull the tape off, and then immediately clear coat. Moving right a long and I'm thinking I will get the car back towards the end of the week, if not sooner.

As far as the stripes go, he definitely made the fender stripes wider and the candy blue is about 3 times the width that it was before. It basically comes out to be the width of standard 3/4" masking tape. At first, I didn't want it that wide, but after seeing it, I like it better. There will be a 3/4" strip of white down the center to make 2 separate stripes. Here's a pic:


Hope you like it.

Thanks man...I can't wait till he starts laying down the clear coat.

It should have a nice wet looking finish.

The painter ran into a little snag on my car and had to sand it down and re-do a lot of it. I'm just glad he didn't try and cover it up and give the car back to me.

He started with the hood to make sure he didn't run into any further issues and sent me some pics. I'm really happy with it but I think I'll take a trip to the shop tomorrow to check it out.

Your car is coming out so amazing man. I'm also really glad the painter was honest about it, and wanted to redo the work. That shows class, and he deserves your business.
