Since it's been a few years (ok, more than a few) since I prepped a car for paint, and even longer since I've painted one, I was having some doubts about my ability. Was my block sanding up to snuff for a black car? Could I even paint a black car?
I decided to go ahead and finish off one body part and see if I was up to snuff. So I painted the trunk. Here it is after a quick color sand and buff.
While not absolutely perfect, I think it looks pretty good. One thing I did learn--my buffing skills are really, really rusty! It'll shine even more once I practice up a bit.
