Thinks for fixing the pictures. Everything that's in bare metal I made with just handtools. I still have a few more patches to make before this one is finished up. I am just trying to get better. I am still working on trying to perfect my tig skill set.

The orange one was painted in Porsche stop light orange because that's what the customer wanted, cost him a third more cause orange is a very transparent colour and required a tinted white ground coat first then still six coats of Dupont Imron aviation paint

Hey Shorty,
What is the difference in aviation paint compared to Auto paints.
Did a google search and there is no definite answer, apart from possibly being more flexible.
How does it compare to price.

Hi oldnek , aviation coatings I find tend to apply easier ,better build and coverage holds a shine longer because of higher uv tolerance, and it touches up without repair edge frying and dramas and that's the main reason, I sometimes see these cars for minor repairs twice a year, so a cover my backside on re-repairs.
Also to a point i'll paint your car in any quality paint you want, these guys think it's better and specify the quality, some rally cars I do I wouldn't paint gates with the crap paint I use on them but after a race season the bodies are so damaged and there's no paint on them anyway
