    Hey everyone! Just incase any of you were wondering, paint thinner takes spray paint and VHS off your car!

    Aloha Y'all. Kane (formerly Kanaloa, but that's another story) here, eh? After touching up the Victory Red on my 07 G5 Sedan with the spray paint from Canadian Tire, I notice that the newly painted areas are not as shiny/reflective as the rest of the car. Do I need to overpaint this with a...

    Okay, so I painted my trim before. Guide was great Rob, but very average on my part. It looked and felt so dull. So I youtubed some wetsanding videos and took the leap of faith.

    Since I bought Red/Black two-tone SS leather seats, I decided it was time to paint my dash trim to match (and look decent). Now I've never painted before and I'm amazed with its outcome (of course with some minor defects you can't really notice unless you look closely). Honestly, if I can do it...
