    Finished painting the hatch couplea days ago...figured I'd post some pics up. Forgive the crappy quality of the pics.

    I painted it myself, with the help of one of my friends. First paintjob ever. It's 93 Mazda RX-7 single-stage silver, with 4 layers of clearcoat. I took the hatch, doors, windows, fenders, trim, moldings, etc. off to paint them. Every inch of the car is silver, like it came that way from the factory.

    If only I hadn't bought single-stage paint.

    Yeah it does look hot... In my opinion your hatch was a better investment than the lude hands down. Now that you are serious dont wreck it man(j/k) you got something special there :lolhammer:

    I should've taken that goddamn dent out. I take EVERY piece that unbolts/unstaps/whatever off the hatch, but I'm too lazy to pop out a dent.

    Oh well. Doesn't look too bad in person.

    It would have been a complete waste without the hoodpins.

    The only reason I bought the hood pins, and the hood for that matter, is because I accidentally shut my hood with a bolt sitting in the li'l hole on the radiator support where the hood latches (don't ask why...I don't know why), and the hood latches on both the radiator support and my stock hood are fubar'd.

    i mean if you were so careful to take everything apart why didnt you remove things from the enginee bay instead of painting over them? key examples brake booster, fuse box, ac hoses, top hats, vaccuum lines, wire harness etc. some things may not be so easy to remove but you could at least mask them. just looks halfassed to me. but thats the only part i have an issue with, the rest looks great.

    Not bad! I wish you had a better side shot though. I guess we'll see it again when it's out in daylight.
