So, me being an over-confident **** sometimes has some backing to it. The paint on the engine bay, spoiler, grille, lip and side trim has turned out immaculate. But I will let the pictures speak for themselfs. start of my weekend to end in chronological order.
My dad and I building a temporary paint booth within our garage.
Masked up the engine bay.

From the outside.
Ready for paint bro.
After the first coat of base.
Sprayed the clear on the engine bay and the miscellaneous body parts.
So as you can see, it has turned out really well thus far. The shedule has me finishing a minor area of work on the welded in panel on the passenger side, finish sanding a few parts, prime the hood and paint the whole car at that time.
I did have one issue with the paint application that I need to address before i continue painting-moisture in the air line. I happened to get a few flecks of water in the clear that need to be fixed and then sand and buff the panels. Below is a pic of what happened...
Base/Clear really is more friendly to amateurs. I will never do another single stage job again if i can avoid it.
