Wow! That looks great. I've heard of people painting their cars with rollers and I thought to my self how stupid they must be. You took your time and made sure everything was perfect. Nice color choice by the way. I wanted a white RSX but tan interior ftl

sweet. i did this to my 93 accord- but a much more rushed, hurried production. In for how it looks a year down the road, after washes, wax etc. Good job though. More patient than i could be.

Thanks for all of the positive feedback. You may not believe that the car really looks like that, but it really does.
I did not retouch any photos. There is still some orange peel and slightly rough areas that should sand and buff out to mirror gloss. Like I said, just waiting for the Cali Summer sun to fully bake the paint
I’m considering borrowing my friend’s DeWalt 12000 rpm buffer.
All of that sanding strained my rotator cuff.

Consider Gloss black- it might be really hard to perfectly match your paint
If not, you will need to carefully color match your paint at expresspaint.com or automotive touchup.com.
slightly overspray your fenders with the can. That paint is expensive - $25 a can plus 10 s&h- and you would likely need 3 cans total.

18-20 Acrylic Enamel Spray can- $4.25 at Lowes each

2 cans plastic (flexible) primer/ 1 bare metal / adhesion promoter - $6.99 each
10-12 cans acrylic clear coat $4.99 each lowes

Tape- 2” $7- 1” $4

Respitator- borrowed but $17 if purchased


Sandpaper- $3.99 per pack at Walmart/ autozone for 60, 100, 150, 800,1000,1500,2000 grit
$5.99 multipack autozone (220-400-600 in pack)

Rubbing compound/polish $4 each

Tack rags $1 each online but $2 in the store

Tarp $1 each-

Hours of obsessing, planning and mental prep for arduous endeavor- $0

9% California Tax FTMFL

You can do the math- I don’t know why I did this really,
It would be easier to just get some paint, mix it and spray it. They have mix in catalysts so they harden up super quick. No baking in the sun required

I actually considered that, I think it would look sick
But It needs an aggressive body kit to pull off the look. I considered the C2 front bumper and 05 headlight conversion paired with some bronze Mugen knock offs. But ultimately decided against it.
