Here is a shot of bird in white sealer..the white ground coat will make the red pop like crazy.

and here is a couple of shots with victory red ground coat on it. I will have to get some shots of it in clear coat for you guys



The red base will flash of to a dull red. After 4 coats of red i laid down 3 coats of a high solids clear. Im going out to the shop after dark when this Iowa heat dies down..I will try to get some shots of the car in shiney clear coat

Hello and ty for the compliment.. I did my 1st paint job in 1982 . Now I have a body shop in town (got biz license in 1993) and a hobby shop on my homestead . My dad and I built the shop on homestead 12-15 years ago i'd say . I am owner and operator , doing everything from estimate to wash boy when job is done.
