Let's just some days you're the windshield and other days you're the bug.

Today I was the bug!

Repainting the roof and tail gate....

O ya it was a lesson learned today DO NOT BUY PRODUCTS FROM:
PAINTFORCARS.COM
TRINITY 1945 PAINT CO.

Will need to strip it back down to bare metal.
Urathane kit that peeled up like dry leaves, I'm not going to get mad this company they must know they sell bad materials.
Utube vids on paintforcars exact same thing that happened to my civic happens to a 2 tone Chevy, PPG silver no problems on top color but the Trinity blue base and clear separates. And flies off in shards.

Well I'm kinda sick in the bottom of my stomach over the paint.
Have to strip and repaint it again. Had a price of 3K to strip and paint, suffering sucatash they must think I fart 100 dollar bills!

So before it gets into winter gotta suck it up and use some REAL PAINT!!!
not that trash on eBay.

PAINTFORCARS, this guy should be taken to court he's a rip off artist.

Lesson learned, even a bad experience can give good lessons





the eBay paint is so bad that I had to repaint. 18 months later here we are doing it again. Buy local from a reputable company, it's the most cost effective way to go.

I hate to be this picky, but i saw one shot where I thought the blades were backwards. Do you have all right side wheels? Cuz they're the right direction on the pass side, but reversed on the drivers. Either way, slick af. I love a nice stock-ish EG. Miss my black one.
