My respect for the pro body guys is at an all-time high. I've been taking a bodyshop class at my local votech school since January. I'm embarrassed to admit this but I have nearly 50hrs in my hood, trunk, and doors and, while not perfect, they are almost ready for color. In fact, I'm going to BC/CC the trunklid tomorrow night just because I can. Of course, I burned through a couple spots on the hood just last night (again!) so I can't shoot color on it yet. :rolleyes:

I've only knocked down the seams on the main body, which I'm going to have to do at the house. I get depressed just thinking about it.

I did a lot of painting and body work while I was in High School. My buddy and I did a fantastic job if I do say so myself. But it is too dang much work, and never turns out perfect. Lots of respect for the guys that do that job everyday.

I'm doing Viper red. Probably not light enough but better than a dark blue or black.
