    Im not saying it wont look good, I saw that covair and it looked damn fine. You cant lie its a ghetto job, but ghetto jobs can be done right. Sorry if I came off rude, isnt the car gonna be black anyways though?

    Yup. All black on the outside. If one (or both) of us gets overly ambitious in the future, the inside might wind up becoming black, too... :D

    I've seen it done on quite a few and thought it looked good.

    You're probably the daddy. It'll take a DNA test to confirm.

    Well, if you'll look at my post again, there's a smiley face indicating that I was smiling, thus, I was JOKING. :rolleyes:

    That's not even close to being funny... :(

    (Note to self: DO NOT post on Stangnet while in a bad mood.)

    The latest eye candy. Second/final coat. Still need to put one more coat on the topside of the wing after it's mounted, but otherwise, it's just a matter now of pulling off the masking tape, putting the door panels back on, cleaning the windows, and cleaning up the inside. :nice:

    Ummm ... let's see...

    Masking tape - FREE
    1 Quart of Gloss Black Rustoleum - FREE (part of 3/4 gallon left over from painting Notch)
    Two ultra-smooth foam rollers - $3
    Pages from Jeg's and Summit Racing catalogs for masking windows - FREE
    13 cans of gray Wal-Mart primer - $13
    4 cans of Wal-Mart gloss black - $4
    1 can of Adhesion Promoter - $4?
    1 pack of 180-grit sandpaper - $5
    2 sanding rubber blocks - $4
    1 Quart of Prep-All - $5? (can't remember some prices)

    Soooo ... probably around $40, give or take. :shrug: Something like $65 if you add on the cost of a gallon of Rustoleum and some masking tape.

    I just wish that we'd been a little more thorough with some things, like sanding the primer down a bit more carefully before rolling; some rough spots are shining through the finish, so we'll either have to sand them down with 220 grit or something fine and then maybe do some touch-up rolling. :scratch: Also, the roof looks like hell, but again, unless we actually just strip the thing all the way down to bare metal, it's always going to look pretty awful up there.

    All in all, it's lookin' like another good 20-Footer Paintjob. :nice:

    So you only did two coats? From what I read on the net it was taking like 6-10? Did you not thin it out as much as they did? Looks good.
