Hey Vulcan that's sweet correct me if I am wrong (normally I am)
Didn't you say candy apple red.?
Does the paint turn with the finally coat or something?
looking sweet though.
What would your uncle charge to paint mine?

Awesome job. I wish I had skills like that. Body work is something I have NEVER been good at.

Is it just me or does he paint look uneven... Don't get me wrong, you are doing something that i could never do, I just wanted to be sure you saw that before the clear coat went on, and if the next two coats of paint would fix that or not.

If you notice.. he said he had 2 more coats of regular paint to go on, before putting on the clear coat. The 2 more coats of pain will take care of the imperfections you see now.

I did say candy apple red in the begining but I changed my mind cuz this jeep will be takin out on trails so fixin scratches would be a pain in the a** so I went with a basic color that's easier to fix and yes the paint is a lil uneven the band new gun was fing up so I threw it. I hate when a new tool doesn't work rite so ill wet sand this down before I finish it. My uncle didn't paint the jeep I'm doin it on week nights and weekends, tryin to get it finished so I can go have some fun with it

U did say red but yes I agree if you are taking it thru the trails then that would be a bad color to paint it , but good choice looks wicked.
