    You should defenitly buff it.


    It's not whether or not I like it, that's all you.

    Why HOK? You do realize it's a laquer based paint and not exactly the easiest paint to lay nicely, as well as expensive...I've used it, I know. Sure it's a good paint, just not necassary.

    And an FYI, Sherwin-Williams is releasing a new line of paint which is VERY similar to the HOK paints.

    im not a noob at paint, i just like their candies (kandy tangerine) but yea i knew about sw. thank YOU alone for your input... idk... maybe i should stop posting..... anything b/c these other ppl go ooh your body kit doesnt fit...i dont like your color... does this not say temp paint job? wtf. id like to see more people paint their own shit with 100 dollars TOTAL in paint and primer (no joke) in 3 days total of body work when i flawlessly shaved the door handles, inside tail lights, liscense plate box, and have it come out better... ok back to explaining myself, what i was gettin at w/ buffing is that i ran out of paint so its thin and also you cant buff single stage metallics or pearls, it takes off the raised edge and they done show. o and if you havent painted anything in your life, dont tell me what i should be doing... its my car and i had no runs in ENAMEL paint... thick as hell and hard to work with imo

    Yep, it's not the easiest thing, I wish I had access to my garage in PA. 4 car double door garage...I'd make a nice paint booth out of a corner. My grandmother won't let me use it though.
