Allowed to cure overnight, the ElCo looked spectacular once we unmasked it the next day. As stated in the beginning, basically the only way to fix a bad paint job is to do it over again. That, and be willing to experiment with mix ratios and gun settings ahead of time before you start painting the car. Learn from our mistakes, and you’ll save yourself lots of time and stress. Special thanks go to Brian Ferre and the autobody students at LA Trade Technical College—this was a great learning experience.
