finally painted...flawless!!

Gold underlay, several coats of clear with translucent red....next to my y22 it is DEAD on..I put the decals on and they look fantastic...they are 1/4mm from where they where originally probably!

A few more coats of clear over the decals and we are done!...just maybe a light waxing once it is all hardened up..

and some more pics with the final layer of clear...

overall it is better than a factory finish, but not too crazy...just right in my opinion!
