Wow, how I have missed this one!? Really great looking paintjob and nice color too. Grille looks good also, nicely done. Nice to see El Caminos from this era too- and I can see, that you're from Estonia, not too far away from Finland... :D It would be great to see these builds on live.

Thanks guys! :D

I dont actually have it for a long time now, the clear coat had some mysterious reaction over time and some serious "cracks" appeared in clearcoat all over the body.

doesnt sound too mysterious to me

i'd say the topcoat was not completly dry when you shot the clear

the paint continued curing and as a result shrunk a little bit

this is what caused the clearcoat to break which dried at a different rate

my advise (for what it is worth) make sure you allow each coat of paint to dry before you change to a different paint
