Thanks I used duplicolor paint and a harbor freight hvlp spray gun
It was a lot of work the rims and tires are from wheelfire.com the whole paint job with paint and supplies was around 600$ for everything a much better price then a body shop but it took a few long weeks of prep work

The wing is off a Saturn trunk lid with a carbon fiber wrap it fits the aspire good but you can't open the trunk all the way it hits on the roof but the trunk is packed full of 2 12" Rockford fosgate p3 subs

Looks like a boat load of sanding. What where the different tools you used to sand it down with?

I've watched a bunch of videos but never done any body work.

I see a little body filler in the pics was that already there or did you do that too?

I used red scotch bright pads sanding blocks and a random orbital sander for the sanding I used a light weight body filler to take care of any small dents I then sprayed some filler primer and sanded the car down again then a coat of primer and a wet sand a few coats of color and I did not wet sand the color it had a good finish no orange peal or drips it was then ready for a few coats of clear that's about it
