ang... yeah... paid $4500 for the first paintjob....that last guy said he put 4 coats of base, and 5 coats of clear.... the shop my car is in now, had a paint pro come out and measure how many coats of paint where on the car.... there were 3..... total.... so no wonder when it was cut/buffed it started to show black sealer through....

um... the plastic dye was in spray bottles... damnit i can't remember the name... but that shit soaks in somehow... i scraped at a piece with a nail for a while and no flaking or chipping at all...

this time it's going into a half million dollar paint booth with downdraft vents... 4 coats of base, 4 coats of white pearl, 5 coats of clear..... (yeah staying same yellow to match the interior)

and... yeah, maybe by the time i get my car back my wheels will have arrived :D

hehe... and i just replied to your post in the "other" forum hehehe...

oh and thanks all so far, for the comments... this positive reaction is a big help on my morality for this project hehehe... i can't wait... once it's painted and i got the wheels in... all i've got left to do is the fiberglassed system/air ride in the trunk....

and then... i'm taking a break to refill my funds before diving into the engine :D
