Finally finished the paint

After about 3 weeks of sanding, 4 days of painting, a day of buffing, I finally finished my paint job. This was a first for me so I hope it holds out. Just to do something different I painted the mouldings around the bird with color shift paint. What I didn't think about was that I would have to paint the red stripe again (that was a pain in %#%). The multi colors look great depending on the light and when there's no light the paint comes real close to matching the car.
