    Dog, you can mess with some things, but you do not mess with another mans car. Thats pretty fucked up. Almost as fucked up as hitting a guy in the nuts.

    I can...I paint design/paint missiles at my job....

    Same steps, different piece. Pearl white is the only paint i have in my booth though. :(


    the paint/primer is undetectable by radar....that'd be nice.

    lol, your only 2 years older than me...btws, i wasnt hating on u....just from my experience i doubted that it was possible to paint a car in 8 hours...

    i guess if there was nothing to fix at all then yeah, you could give it a quick rub down, wash it off, mask it up and spray...you' be pushing it getting the clear on though...and you could only do basic coats...as in not too many...

    youd have to be very adept at masking to get finished...shits fucking annoying...

    I just got my car back from the paint shop last Friday.

    I was thinking about doing it myself but I just said fuck it.

    I've seen horrible results when people do it themselves.
    Plus the guy did a really nice job.

    Snapped a pic yesterday.

    Can't really see too much.
