Spray job

Build028 1970 BMW 2002 M42 Restoration 071

Time to make it look nice. Fresh paint sure does a lot to bring a car back. You see those guys on youtube all time doing cheap work to cars; you know, fixing them with ramen and super glue (I'm not even kidding), or spraying blow foam into holes and then slathering bondo over it. Not acceptable. Paint can be used to cover a sham of a job, too. We don't like that, round these parts. Do it right, or don't do it at all.

Lots of prep went into this job, after all, it's what makes it look good! That actual spraying itself is only a small part of the job. It's prep and finish that makes a car pop.

This hood got a lot of swears thrown at it.

No swears for the flares. Just some paint.
