Default Before and After pics - Fire Red Pearl paint job.

I just wanted to share the results. We use Fire Read Pearl - Base Coat / Clear Coat Urethane from TCP Global. About $400 total in materials.

What you guys think?

Loved the paint. The Clear was labeled as "fast" - and fast it was.... you have to be careful with fast clear coats to avoid "orange peel" look.
