Great job on the garage paint splash: I like you're style. Looks great. What did paint cost you if you don't mind me asking? Whatever it was, you sure saved yourself a bundle and ended up with a very fine ride.

I used dupli-color paintshop paint,primer-base(deep blue/silver)-clear coat about $22 a quart but you don't have to mix it ,its ready to use and very easy I might add.
after clear coat you have to wetsand and buff out then polish for a good shine
