    Does the color of paint effect the end result?

    Wet-sanding is where it's at when your all done. That Lacquer paint shines up awesome!
    You did this with the Blazer too ya? Btw it's the kid from Chevron. I got a sloppy *** box that I might have to do this to if you're up for helping me out.

    I'm in the middle of attempting this right now. I just (5 minutes ago) finished wet sanding the second coat of primer with 400 grit. Once it's dry enough Imma put the first layer of gloss black on. I'll post pics later and once I'm finished.

    Hoping for a sweet look. :P

    holy krap. where you work 10mo hitches?

    btw, color does effect. for solid colors, black shows the most imperfection of any, and if you do metalics, make sure to have a nice smooth/even primer coat to spray on, or it will mottle and show all the coarse scratches and pits, etc. a couple primer coats and 400 should suffice for most.

    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks
