zoom in a little on the paint... it looks good from far, but I'm curious what the texture really looks like... on a DIY job though

I see a tiny, tiny bit of orange peel in the close-up on the sidemirror... you can tell by how the reflections of the ceiling lights are not perfectly even lines. But that small amount is great for a home job... Earl Sheib did mine and the orange peel look was HORRIBLE.

ahh yes the seals. well um the side windshield mouldings, i broke every clip that holds them on, they are tough to get off with out em breaking. the weather stipping on the that goes all the way around, is easy, its 4 screws for the front and 2 for the rear ones then they just peel off, but becareful pullin em off there is a sealant on them, if ya go to fast you can destroy em.
