I started this project 2 days ago and what I wanted to do is to prep a couple of body's, so I don't have to paint body's throughout the winter. But this project went along so nicely, that I decided to work on it and I actually finished it in 3 days, a record for me really.

I had no intention to make it with a satin finish, but as I went along, I decided it would look incredibly cool on this car, so I tried and it did look very nice. I am no fan of matte, satin or flat finishes, I need glossy! But this does look very nice. For the rest, the car is boxstock.

Thanks guys!

@Jim: I know you do :) hehe, but once you go flat, you never go back :P Although I do prefer shiny myself too.

I love suede finishes. Deep glassy gloss is fine, but satin has the ability to bring the focus to the lines rather than the surfaces...and sometimes that's just what the doctor ordered.

Cool color tone on this one...and ya gotta love those quick builds especially when they turn out this nice.
