used PPG paint and keystone clear, don't know what gun but ill check it out.
started sanding wed., buffing last night and today, hopefully will get to start putting it
back together today. yeah my dad does bodywork, some painting. he took care of all the
big work, the car had hail damage under all the paint that was on it. i took care of most the the hail damage dents, nothing big for me. alot of striping and sanding though ill be glad when its all done.

Car looks great.

Color choice is spot on. I

t's hard to get a good blue on a S14...but you know it when you see it...and you definitely have it.

Nice work man!

it does look very nice. i contemplated something like that on my s13, but after seeing a few blue ones, I ditched they idea. Im instead going with Galaxy Black like on the newer Nissan Titans. Its such an awesome color.

you have any pics of the car back together?
also, wondering what paint code you were using. Was at the local paint shop looking at different le mans blue shades, didnt consider the pearl (looks like pearl in the pics) paints. did a great job on the body work though
