    Thanks... I had to fiberglass little dings and stuff. Where the new rear quarter is welded to the rest of the body; the seam is fiberglassed. I had runs in my clear coat. Painting under the spoiler was hell. Mainly redoing the fiberglass stuff until I couldn't feel or see any dents or bumps. Also when you get runs in the clear, you have to wait for it to dry and you then sand off the run until its flat. Reapply the clear after final clean and hope it doesn't run again.

    Another thing, I was also a first time buffer and I ended up buffing the trunk too much where I started seeing little to no clear coat... ugh redo the trunk. Just stuff you need to be tedious about.

    Lol wow, they actually though you wouldn't notice a piece of tape under the new paint? That's just wrong.
