This past weekends project

As you all know, or at least some of you know, I had painted both calipers and brake drums Ferrari yellow. I wanted to update everyone on how they came out. Personally, I like them.
Here's how they started out:
Car was jacked up and all wheels/tires taken off as well as the rear brakes:



Than both sets front and back were sanded down and primed.



Than I started to paint!
8 coats of yellow and 5 coats of clear coat.


(I had started to try to stick stickers on the primer level that said BALT So when i peeled them off it would be black... Well it didn't work. So I tried a different idea in final result.


In between Coats of paint I found some CSS.net decals... Humm
I peeled off the "SS.NET" part of the sticker and stuck the COBALT on.



Finally the outcome:



The BALT came from other CSS.net decals that I just cut. and they worked out!

AFTER:



Any Comments?

Thanks. It took me from 8 in the morning till about 3 in the morning for all coats and what not. I had to put tires back on the next day at noon so it was a pretty good sized project for me.
