    Thread: My spray painted R.

    1. 04-21-2012 08:37 AM #1
      Hello,

      I wanted to show you my MkV R32. It was painted with cans by my brother Bastique.

      Very well done, but if I see this on the street I'm going to assume it's an unfinished job. Where are the sponsor logos or banner ads? It looks like it should be advertising something.

      First time I hear that opinion, well, I guarantee: there won't be anything advertised. Ever.

      Only thing I didn't like about it is that was done to my favorite color .:R. Shoulda been done on a Candy White.

      This looks incredible, but I'd be far too worried about being keying it and doing stuff to it to ever take it out of the garage.

      that's because it was properly clear coated not rattle can cleared

    26. 04-23-2012 11:07 AM #26
      Yup, of course, four layers of clear coat plus intermediate sanding to do it right. Otherwise it'd look like a graffiti on a wall.

      In other news: gonna submit some new pics next week.
