Montclaire is where my music career actually took a big upswing, producer out there got my demos to the right people and I had big record deals before I knew it. Of course I told her she was gonna die if she didn't, in a practical joke sort of way. haha
Anyhow I'm in way south jersey, Atlantic County. So I dunno no big deal, I don't need help really. I know what to do, just been experimenting with spray paint, versus a paint system. Just cheaper and practical for a project car like this. But I went thru all the high gloss black paint they had, and I put it on heavy for a nice even coat. Sadly I got a big of a run on the paint. But you can only tell close up, far away the job looks really good now.
It doesn't look like new car paint jobs from the factory, but they are put on different. It looks sort of like a maaco job I guess....good but not factory or show by any stretch. Maybe when I clear coat it, or when I wax it, it will look better. I dunno if I'm gonna sand down and recoat when they get more paint in. Or if I'm just gonna let it be and do a paint system on it next summer.
Car just has lost priority at this point, it looks good enuff, runs good enuff. I'll probably wind up parking it till winter to burn around in the Passat. Plus I'm trying to launch my marketing my independant mechanic services this month, so I gotta cut some budget for that.
I've found it's even hard to match can to can this paint, it's mixture is inconcistent or something. I had to use a whole can over another can I put on too heavy like back to back, cause I patch sprayed a side I didn't get too, and it looked way different, so I had to go back over. Cause last time I didn't do that, and it wound up staying a different shade, weird.
