All DIY Hardtop Miata

Hardtop Painting Part #2

I was anxious to get the second hardtop painted blue.  I purchased some more paint from S1ngle Source Paints and followed the same process as I did on the first top.    

I did have the couple of bugs, a hair and some dust.  I also tried to repair the color coat for one before applying the clear.  I sanded the spot after the color dried.  When I reapplied the color, I used my airbrush.  It is noticeably different in appearance of the metallic particles on the rest of the top.  It is not horrible, but I know it is there.  I won’t do that again!

It was painted on the 29th then sanded and buffed on the 30th.  Here is the result. 

I have told everyone that the word of the day is awesomer.  This is how you make an awesome car even AWESOMER!
