GTR dialed in!!!!!

Had a little fun the other day (sarcasm implied). Of all the rumors I have heard about the infamous GTR black paint, I never really believed it until I got my hands on one. I have done different color GTRs, but never a black one. Let me tell you, its got to be one of the best and worst paints out there...super hard to finish down, yet corrects rather easily! Weird, I know!
At first glance, I could tell from the start it was going to be a long day even though the owner didnt think it would be as bad as his supra i did for him a couple years ago...definitely wrong on that one! This car took me 12 hours to get it to its current condition. I could have easily spent more time on it, but it was a HUGE turn around.
