Looks really nice bro. Your truck is lookin clean!

I need to get on the ball. I've had an extra set of mirrors for like a year now. I started sanding on one for like 3 hours and was like fuck this and quit lol.

All the sanding actually inst nesseary...

my whoel truck was colormatched by primeing and painting...then wet sanding..then painting again and clearing. It gives the same effect as sanding..without all the work..and it last,

bowtiekid- me and dad just sanded and sanded and sanded... started with 80, then 120, then 200... wet sanded with 1000... primered, wet sanded 1000 again... wet sanded 1500, then 2000. painted, wet sanded more 2000 then had to paint again because there were some inperfections. I wet sanded down to primer with 400 grit to get rid of the imperfections, then 3 goats of gm silver birch and 4 coats of clear.

bout to go wash up the truck and get pics
