Yes very good. What paint, grit sand paper and all that stuff? I have a small m'c trailer a fellow gave me and want to try something on my own as well. Am leaning towards the metal cast system that folks have been discussing and the 2 part clear coat in the can........ Candy spectra red, the lightning fast color.

Great job, I take it you didn't use a rattle can.
I didn't get a finish like that even using a gun and lots of sanding on my old dodge
well done

it was done with a spary can its called cherry red

its a dupli-color acrylic enamal flowed by dupli-color

acrylic enamel clear frist i sanded with 80 grit than

with 120 grit then primed it with dupli-color high build

pimer sand able then fixed anything that need to be fixed

then wet sanded with 400 grit washed it with soap and water

then sprayed the cherry red in three light coats waiting ten min.

in between coats than one good coat let it dry for almost one hour

then spryed the clear the same way let dry for 24 hours then wet

sanded with 2000 grit then buff back the shine

i tryed the metel cast panit its not as good as they say so dont waste

your money on it.

it takes time to make it trun out good so dont get in a hurry or you will

sand your but off
