    Finally finished

    Well I finally finished with the repainting of my 95 5Spd to the original Venetian Blue color. I think it came out very nice for doing it in my driveway.

    Here are a few of the finished pics.

    Thank you. On this one front and rear bumper covers, hood , trunk lid, all ground effects, all glass minus windshield and back window came out of it. Battery box, over flow tank, and the stuff on the PS wheel well came out too.

    Awesome job, Smitty!

    Was this your first serious paint job?

    Seems like chameleon would be one of the tougher paint jobs to get right!

    Matt,
    This was the second one. I painted the Orange Crush pearl on my other 95 the same way. The only difference is that I left the trunk lid on for the Orange Crush Pearl job. Everything else was the same way as this one.

    I was a little nervous about doing this one, but it came out looking like I had hoped it would.
