Basically, I sanded the fuck out of it today. There are a few imperfections still with the hood but one more sanding and a few more coats and I should be golden. The roof is all feather out and aside from the part of the trunk lid that has to be debadged (couldn't find the hair dryer) it's all good to go for paint.

seems too good to be true but I am always willing to try out a new technique so I will be doing my neon and posting some pics also.

I'm going to be doing it over, all Sunburst Yellow.

Basically, get a clean body, and skip the black. It shows every little ding I haven't seen before with the white xD

Lots of sanding, thin coats, good taping, and patience.
