Its a finished gym area....I have a vent above the area, which is closed. I may tape it off. Still getting alot of dust as of the 6th coat today. I have to say, it is looking good though. I have full coverage, except the hood which I sanded down to primer to get rid of some roller marks. Kinda wish I had went with white, I found a couple small dings that I didn't know were there when I was doing the body work. I am kinda unsure if I want to try the stripes now that I have done all this work...I don't wanna mess up this decent paint job and have to start all over.

I think dust will always happen. It sure does to me...a lot. Some times my cat even jumps on my freshly painted hood. gun4

When you do the final wet sand the dust will be gone. Just make sure you put enough coats on your car.

I agree with the dings and black paint. I'm having the same problem right now. The worst part is if you think they look bad wait in till you buff the car. They will stand out even more.

Now is the time to go after them. It's a much less big deal to tear into the already applied paint now, and fix any flaws which have become apparent. You can just deal with them on a spot-by-spot basis.

You'll run into pop-up flaws, and rub-throughs, and crap like that, and you just have to repair them and build the paint back up over them. That's a much bigger pain, after you've buffed it out.

If you can see them now I promise you they will look even worse after you buff it out. Black shows EVERYTHING.

Those stripes will look pretty cool. Black is good for that car - nice and sinister looking...

Got the hood and trunk lid done....ran into a snag, and wet sanded through one of the stripes on the hood....that sucks. Anyone know what I need to do to back out of the polishing/buffing to touch up the stripe? Its about a 2 inch long bare spot...Will I need to completely repaint the whole stripe???

Adding some pics of the trunk/hood

I painted my stripes on after 10 coats of base, against some recommendations on this board. Some have stated to paint the whole base the stripe color, and then go back and tape off the base area. I did it backwards and it worked for me. I have one more coat to put on the body, and then body stripes. Just put hood and trunk lid on to line up body stripes, I think it looks pretty sweet. Found a few little goofs on body paint when going back over with a flashlight, so may sand back down and put another couple coats on. I am hoping it all works out. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

Bro that looks f'ing sweet, no doubt! It's definitely hard to believe that's not a pro paint booth job! I like it a lot, may run with your scheme on my '96 GT Vert...

Few updated pics....started buffing and polishing. Looks pretty good. I burned two spots buffing...that sucked. Sanded it out and looks o.k....may touch it up. Let me know what you guys think....still trying to find the sweet spot in the buffing process. Not the best pics....sorry.

Looks great, but looks like a little more light buffing could be helpful with a good wax maybe... Looking great though bro!

Maybe that's what I'm seeing... I'd give her a good bath & go from there! Looks light very light buffing should fix her right up! You did use the Meguire's Ultimate Compound right?

Hoowaaaah!

That looks really good!!! Very nice reflection. And the car looks sinister in that color scheme.

One of these paint jobs is like a hot rod - in that it's never finished. As the paint settles and time passes, you may notice little spots which still need a little attention. The good part is that you can always go back and redo them. Some of my sanding shows through mine a little bit, but I rushed my color-sanding.

Nice work!!!
