People can argue this all day, I actually like how it turned out. Without wetsanding and buffing it, it has a matte finish that goes well with the matte black we used on the headlight covers. In the end I am glad I did this paint job the way I did, I enjoyed it (kinda) and it helped waste time while waiting on other aspects of the car.

If I decide to paint the car I will be getting a different hood and I don't think I will be doing the orange after all. We did the Grand Am brake upgrade and painted the calipers a 'kawasaki green' type of green. I have always like that color and might look into painting the car that color instead =D

I think you should be proud of what you did. Many times it’s the doing not the done. Nice job!

I did a roll on paint job on my trunk with oil based stuff because I got rid of the luggage rack. I cant tell the difference between the old paint and the new. You can custom mix the stuff for an exact match. Need to buff it up and it's sweet. Seems tough as nails.

The roll on paint job for an entire car seems like an awful lot of work. I have purchased the airless spray kit from harbor freight and I am going to try spraying on the duplicolor one part paint. The cost not counting the sprayer kit will be the same or less and a lot less painting and sanding and painting and sanding. I guess the roller is okay for one panel but too much work for an entire car

Sounds great, the paint seems like good stuff. I heard about someone using a blow drier set to cool after rolling to pop any bubbles. Yeah that sanding and 6 coats etc is a chore. Still, it looks better than a lot of factory paint jobs on the newer cars these days. Lot's of new cars have noticeable "orange peel" and even this roller method can do better.

That's true about orange peel, our 2007 Mustang has orange peel in some spots. I noticed that close up pictures on original paint often shows up orange peel
