e30 repaint









Doesn't show off the paint much but you get the idea


Looks really good in person. Metallic silver was really hard to get even but it was worth it...looks real good

Does it need some time, like a month, to fully cure before waxing?

yeah it suckeddd i did a full sand down prime and paint it cost around 900 for the supplies and stuff i personally dont think a stripe would look good but if your gonna do it do it in gloss you have fresh metalic if its flat it will blow your paint off you know what i mean?

well i guess there is one nice thing to having a family conmapny. You get Jobber rate on the paint lol. it cost me less than 100 to repaint a car a couple years ago.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
