Polaraco Dents, Scratches and Rust

When doing small areas you can get a Preval propellent/sprayer kit
which allows you to use quart or gallon paint, you just put
paint/thinner in the glass bottle that screws to the propellent
cylinder/spray valve. I always get a qt. mixed up when I  buy a
car for touch up and repairs, if the whole thing doesn't need a
respray.  Preval costs about maybe $10?

Stan? where is this taken??

It's not mine.  It's another one of Steve's "It's almost October and I gotta finish it up before winter"  projects.

I ended up doing from the rear doors back, except below the molding on the left side.  That was recently done at the body shop.  There we so many spots it just wasn't worth it anymore.  And I still missed a few little spots.  Just painted over them.
 
There spots of orange peel here and there.  Wet sanded out most of it and the dirt.  It's really hard to do a pro job outside in unpredictable weather, wind, bugs.. . .

That's because it's still waiting for a transmission bought back in August...

For some time I wanted to light up the middle of the tail lights.  I tried many different things.  Nothing fit.  But I found these LED's in a strip that are perfect.  What do you think?
 
I think I'll order one for the other side.

My wifes 2010 Mustang GT has sequential tailights also. OK I know but it is an all around better car than the new Challenger. Besides that it's what the wife wanted. All you married guys know the old saying, Happy Wife, Happy Life! I just call it Petty Blue instead of Grabber Blue LOL.

Everyday I grapple at the issue of looking at Pamela's Mazda RX-8 in the garage.
