    Its nice, but needs to be wet-sanded BAD.. Nice to see that people still have the balls to try and shoot black.

    Is that a big fat dent in your fender? Maybe it's just a reflection or something, right at the top of the line where the hood and fender meet.

    You didn't try to fix it before painting it?

    well considering i had an appointment, i kinda ran out of time. that is the spot where the coupe/sedan fenders met. the guy who welded them didnt do it right, and that fender isnt really straight. i did best i could.

    there are a few dents i missed and two that i didnt fill completely (DS rear wheel well, and the hood but that doesnt matter since im going c/f anyway) but overall im extremely pleased with the outcome of the car and i cant wait till i can wetsand it. its super shiny :)

    Did you put the windshield in yourself, the bead looks like kind of rough, but otherwise looks good.
