Well to catch everyone up I bought my MKIII 89 Targa Turbo a few months ago and have been working on restoring it. I decided to paint the car in my garage which over all I'm very happy with the outcome. There were a few small problems and whatnot that will need to be airbrushed out but I'm going to save that till the end and do all the touch up at once since the engine will be going in as soon as we(myself and Idealsupra) build it. So here is the full progress of the car Before's During and After paint(yes I know we missed a few spots in the engine bay that is one of the problems that needs to be touched up at the end)

thanks a lot guys.....Mudflaps forgot about those inside of the car will hit them later when I do final touch up..... Painted with a compressor and a expensive ass spray gun w/ a drier on it as well....Moldings Havnt decided yet just took them off for the time being and may hit them at the end as well depends on how it looks once i push it in to the sun and really get a good look and see how much touch up is needed, The trim is covered but I'm going to re paint it all black again as well...
