Just finished painting my Subaru and put it together today. It turned out good for my first time I think. What do you think?

Looks good at 50 feet or 50mph. Closer shots, at more angles would help a lot.

Is it single stage or base clear?

Did you have any help from somebody in the field (bodymen/painter)?

Looks good, the masking and materials used are pretty good and is what you would find at a body shop.

GJ. Must have been tired by the end if it but the efforts put forth shows
