  2. "Smart" paint job with aerosol spray paint for under $100!

    Wraps, Paint & Trim
    Hand painted my 2010 Passion for under $100. A friend and I did everything ourselves. 5 hours of prep, 2 coats of paint (Gun Metal Grey), 3 coats of clear, and some racing stripes! If you're afraid of doing it yourself, don't be. Just take your time and don't rush the drying process.

  6. crappy clear coat?

    smart General Discussion
    I did not get around to washing my smart for 2-3 weeks - now there is all this crap embedded in the clear coat, black and rust colored spots, which no longer can be removed by just washing the car. Yes, I know I can get it off with a clay bar, but it pisses me off that I can leave my Honda...
