When I talk flaws...
I'm talking tire patches, waves.. wow's.. etc.
For a car to be completely cut and rubbed flat..
You need to be able to lay your face againts the body, and look down, and not see a single ripple or wave reflecting back at you..

What's good enough for most painters...
Isn't even a starting point for what I consider ready to paint..
Hate to brag....
But I'm constantly being told...
One of my "bad" paint jobs.....
Is better then most painters "high end" job

Here's a couple of pics of what I consider a "mediocore" paint job I did for a friend.
Total of 2 weekends body work( including patch panels) and 1 day to shoot the car
