Based on the little I know about you from these threads I would totally believe that you're going to repaint it, but why?

Never satisfied. Always shooting for perfection. Yea paints better than any out there or when it was new but I’m still not satisfied

Just read all your stuff. I hate to say it but,...if you want to paint something. GET ANOTHER CAR. Your stuff is great the way it is and if your bored fire up another one. Your a collector of fine cars, and you talent should keep moving ahead with a regular Fox.

So your just blocking down this paint...... no stripping down to metal?
Yep. Blocking it down with 600 grit and leveling it flatter and doing fresh base and another 6 coats of clear. Probably take me a week or two. Doing another car would be months of body work to get to this point. Once a body is done its straight and your just perfecting the paint finish.

Sucker's bet. Of course, you are. Can even see the reason in this image.

And I think, this one:



I'm sure we can't see everything from the pics but it looks like you did something different with the metal flakes or added some pearl? It looks deeper.

In the pictures it's hard to tell a difference but you can see a contrast most here:
