    Thanks! Very exciting for him and me! Almost hard to believe it can look like that with where we started.

    Well crap!

    Well, after my painter got the car out in the sun, he found some bad tiger striping on the passenger side. My guess is because the Nason paint. So he did rehab on his gun and hoses and air supply. Possibly because we used Nason paint. Resanded everything and reshot the car with Chroma and all is good now. He was very disappointed and did all the redo at his cost. And he's not charging me for the Nason paint.
    Before, Nason and stripes:

    After, Chroma, no tiger stripes:
