    You gotta watch out if your using that paint..
    I fucked up the hood of my beautiful m3 because it was standing in a puddle there.. paint very very thin with this stuff it could mess up your etire body like it did to mine..
    but when you did that it looks great.

    Oh, this is so true. Also, when people say let it dry completely do exacty what is implied and let it dry. Some people like to do the whole lets touch it to make sure it's done drying. DO NOT DO THIS. In most cases you get lucky and it is dry, however you may not be that lucky and will only end up ruining your paint job.

    That's one mistake I made too, "ooh, looks dry, let's touch it" IT WAS A DISASTER!
    From now on I'll never make that mistake again
