My painting project is done. Up close you can tell that it was the first car I ever painted, it’s far from perfect. But I did learn a lot. Like if you’re going to spend $400 for a gallon of paint, don’t use a $80 house paint sprayer to spray it on. Like over spray gets e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.
But I’m happy with it, I really like the color I picked, and unless you’re up close it looks pretty good. And although it’s no longer green, I think I’m going to keep the name “Big Green”. Mainly because “Big Brown” conjures up bad connotations. Although my niece did have a brown car she called “The Poo” and I always thought that was cool.
Anyway, here it is, before and after.
And just in case you didn’t believe it was the same car…
