so I did some painting......

my friend wanted me to paint his '76 Mustang II. after changing his mind 4 times from red and silver, to red and black, to black and silver, then silver and black, thin is the final result. Luckily, he made up his mind before I started painting.

whatcha think?

before:

he could have at least washed it before he brought it over.....

You should've painted it the same color as your jeep (the tj). But great job!

yes, it has clear coat on it. We had a hard time finding clearcoat that wouldn't make the paint run (he bought rustolium in the aluminum flavor). Eventually Duplicolor was used. I will never paint anything else silver again.

if it was up to me I would've painted it forrest green with silver stripes. Originally, the car was orange. then red, then black, then red again, then another red, and then this. sanding it was fun.......

thanks for all the compliments
