Wow, that's a shiny trunk lid!

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.

  1. Lookin' good. Can't see any imperfections in that picture, but I'll take your word that they're there. Keep it up.
