They haven't been wetsanded or cleared at this point, but will be all done together when they're all ready for that stage in the process.

Clear coat is still wet, but it's getting closer!

Are you planning on polishing after wet sanding?

Depends on if I finish respraying my hood before getting to the polish step for the wheels. I miss driving my car and it's been in pieces for way too long.

Weather is getting nicer and I just want to drive.

Nice job! Did you prime the edge after sanding?

BTW, how do you like DWS06? I am choosing between DWS06 and A/S3+ now. Costco has pretty good deal on A/S 3+, but DWS06 should be better all season I guess.

Thanks! Learning is expensive though. I could have had a professional refinish them for much less than what I have in them so far...but it's fun.

Here they are in direct sunlight. Well, 3 of them. I had to start over on one of them.

Looks as though it turned out great. You sound like me. It starts off with this thought "I will save myself money and do it myself" and then by the time I'm done "learning" and generally screwing things up plus buying/renting tools I could have paid someone to do it. Oh well, nice sense of satisfaction when done.
