I'm sayin! Who cares what other people around you think. Unless you prefer big wheels compared to 13s then its your own thing. :cool:

There is nothing wrong with cutting and buffing single stage.........as long as it's not metalic......


And there is no reason to get down on someone for using single stages.........most solid colors (like this one) look better single stage ;)

the car is completely wetsanded except roof and bumpers....will finish up tomorrow and get to buffing hopefully....and my single stage paintjob looks great...i could give to shits if you clowned on me. as long as its not primer! its some sort of color. wet sanding just made it really smooth but it still shines its weird...like base color clearcoat usually the shine completely dies! and this car was kandy maderin orange over a yellow basecoat but i ddint liek how it came out....it was kinda striped...and a i had a few little runs. i decided to practice more on bullshit little jobs and get used to laying nice even paterns befor ei step up my game!
