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

    Still - the orange one is a pearl / metallic color too...little extra challenge!

    Anyway - great job my friend!

    Great job

    Colors like that are really hard to match. Sometimes doing whole sides or whole cars is easier than doing just a small section. Looks great!

    Tom,
    Your are so very correct, there was no way I was going to try and match 22 year old paint with the new, so I painted everything I could get paint on that had the original color on it. Door Jams, under side of trunk lid, underside of hood and inside engine compartment all got prepped and painted fresh. The only way to do it right!

    Thanks,

    Smitty

    I do paint for a living, so it's nice to see someone spend that kind of time on a project. It really shows. I've seen a lot of "professional" jobs come through our shop that would scare the daylights out of you. I take pride in my work, I can see you do as well. well done.
