Didn't you say you were going with the same color? The pics make it look more teal-ish.

I think the color in the pictures is the combination of the light and the camera on my new phone, which is a different one than the one I took the original pictures with. If anything, the new paint is slightly further away from the blue end of the spectrum. Look at how much the blue masking tape on the headlight and radiator stands out-I think this phone just picks up a lot of blue. But yeah, a lot of surface area, especially with a touch-up gun.

Thanks!

I didn't get much done today, a buddy of mine came into town, and before I knew it, it was after five and I was just getting back home to get started. I did manage to hit a couple of spots with rubbing compound, and I think it's going to come out OK without wet sanding except in the very worst areas. We'll see, I plan on working on that a lot tomorrow.

There comes a time when you HAVE to say enough is enough.
Years ago I had a 50 merc leadsled and and I drove it as I worked on it. anyway, It probably had 5 different paint jobs because it was "not show worthy" (I wasn't really happy with it). Finally I realised I wasn't perfect Sad and neither was the car so Since that was the best it would ever be, enjoy it and drive it.

Thanks, I' thinking the same thing. I've accomplished my goal of having good enough paint on it to pull up somewhere and not have paint that's obviously peeling off. It's a good, consistent finish. The more I polish on this thing, the more I'm realizing it's going to need another coat or two before I could even think about it being perfect, and I just don't have time for that. Sitting around the house not making any money is driving me way more crazy than a little dull paint or orange peel ever would, so I'm inside now taking a short break from what's going to be the last of the polishing I do.
