Finished painting my European fuel door, lots more buffing and polishing to go. Sorry for the overabundance of pics, but I'm quite happy with the way things came out!

My reflection


I used Duplicolor clear coat successfully this time around. There was a lot of orange peel, but I managed to sand it down enough without cutting all the way through the clear. I used my single speed buffer and 3M rubbing compound to get the gloss out. btw the compound was the only stuff I had laying around. The paint has swirls in it because of the compound, but now at least it'll match the swirls on my car's paint hahaha
