Here's a teaser...the weather was warm enough over the past weekend that I made a lot of progress on getting my set painted and clear coated. The Flint Mica came out great! However, to my rather discerning eye, there is a little too much 'orange peel' in the clear for my tastes. A buddy at work paints motorcycles as a side business and he's going to take a look at my work so far and make some suggestions. Based upon my description today, he thinks that perhaps gentle wet sanding with some 1,200 or 1,500 grit sandpaper might do the trick, then spray on another coat or two of clear to finish it off. I'll post up the final pics when they are ready. Stay tuned!

You can get an unpainted set and get them wrapped in CF. Garm sells both items through the store.

Eyelids installed.

Wow, it's been awhile since I bought them but they are finally done! The color match was perfect! I used 3m double sided molding tape, cut to fit using a razor blade, then applied to the back of the eyelids then carefully attached them. Now my little guy has a more aggressive look. I'm very happy with the way they turned out. I hope you think so too.

Paint, clear coat and eyelids before prep and paint:

Thanks for the pictures! Your car looks great.
So it looks like our question has been answered. AtuomotiveTouchUp.com is the best place to get some matching paint for a decent price!

Thanks much!

Yeah, my buddy who paints motorcycles was quite impressed. The key is to do many 'lite' coats, giving about 5-10 minutes between them. Wet color sanding with 1200 - 1500 grit paper makes them nice and smooth. I did the wet sanding between the paint and applying the clear coat. I'll let them cure for a few weeks, then I'll do the polish and wax thing to seal 'em up.
