Looks sharp! How did you fix the pinched fender issue? What causes that, missaligned fender or a sagging door? both?

Loyalty, I feel like I have the same passion as you do for making cars look this damn good. I was learning how to spray but the shop closed before I could get that experience, the only thing I'm good at is prepping lol.
Question, do you use a paint booth or is it a DIY at home or something?

Great work man.

I'm actually going to start on my sisters car and do a full restoration on it, and then I will work on mine... finish it really.

the cause in this case was a side swipe. to repair you just gotta tap it out and make sure you don't swell the metal. after that fill in what ever needs filling with body filler. pretty tuff task but end results are great

I do the prep in my garage and than take it to my shop and spray it on the booth. sweet bro you should post pics when you get to workin on em. I like doing the work an I like giving people a fair price unlike shops where your paying storage fees and a million dollers for a two day job that say will take as long as two to three weeks.. what I do to avoid all that none sence is bring my customerto my garage re assure them that the car will be ok and let them know that the car will be back to them within two to three days and if for any reason it's not they will know because I'm constantly updateing them. but ya it's an awsome job and you get to meet alot of awesome people. I thank god I havnt come across one jerk. from my experience if you treat someone with respect you will than recieve that same respect

see that one to three days is what gets me.. i haven't done any major projects but only cuz people will spend waay to much in a shop because they can have it done right then. i will break myself off on a project, but i always worry about that one nonseen thing that can make it an extra day project. just gotta keep em knowin whats up.. and you're dang right.. my luck some dude would be like... what's up? why ain't this done?

i really gotta ask though. two things... what do you use to clean up the door/bumper moldings.. and what's the black prep stuff you used after you sanded prior to prime and paint?
