Looks beautiful! Out of curiosity, have you ever done a car in autumn orange metallic? One of my favorite SN colors
Thanks and yes...I’ve painted it a few times. Nice color. Hard to get it right tho.

Too bad it requires a 15K paint job to make you appreciate them (or am I too low?)

How do you clean the pieces after sanding between coats?

Wax and grease remover is what I use to clean before, during and after sanding

Where do you buy that cf cowl? Mines broken and can’t justify spending $150 for stock plastic. Would be a nice upgrade if not much more
