    Would like to get the car running well first. I've got a 2008 if I want to go blow people away.

    The engine is running fine. Just had to clean up the suspension. Still need some exhaust work, too.

    I think GM had a similar color a few years back called Canyon Mist or something like that. Was pretty sharp IMO.
    Edit: Wow I thought that was paint....looks decent anyway.

    Bodywork first, then it was time to mask everything off.

    Then the car gets 5 coats of a black base.

    Then it's time to mix the clear topcoat with the burnt copper pearls.

    You aren't going to run that through a real gun would you? Even a primer gun.

    Besides, Dipyourcar.com doesn't call that a vacuum cleaner spray gun, they call it a "turbine". :lmao2:

    I find those cheapies to be pretty useful for small job.
