Nobody's asked this - can you see any better out of the rear window ?
BTW - Took the wing off my car too... it screwed up the paint just a little, so ..... as I worked for a paint and body shop back in the day, I sanded, primed, sanded, primed, and used the "Duracolor" off the shelf, and the first few weeks, it looked great, better than factory, because it was baby butt smooth - and no orange peel like in most factory paint jobs. For a week it was the best looking part on the car.
Now it's cracking and dulling....what a bummer man !!
Well, besides working in a paint and body and knowing my Shi*, I also used to own a detail shop that served 4 dealerships and did work on high dollar stuff like Lotus, Jag, Benz, Porsche, and Rolls Royce.., .....and I know there is about an inch of paint under that "scab" looking trunk now....so - high speed buff, polish, clear coat.
Dura color is such a crap product.... man, I spent hours on that trunk lid....and spent 7.99 on 6 cans of paint. And in about 3 weeks it went from glossy perfect to crackled dull crap !!
I'm just gonna make friends again with my old Paint guys and shoot the car myself in Dupont Imron. I am fed up with crap stock paint jobs and crap rattle can stuff.
I am going to try it one more time, but this time, Clear coat it afterwards ----maybe the paints they make nowadays are UV protected and expect a clear coat.
