Since it was a small area, I held the can about 12" away in a quick sweeping motion. I'd say about 40% coverage for the first coat (I would do two coats of the etching primer before filler primer).

As far as I know, there's no repainted/repaired sections. The paint looks uniform throughout the whole body. There's no noticeable 'blending' around the door jams. I figured the paint started lifting due to Subaru's horrible quality paint, plus 250k miles lol.

If I do need to start over, I guess it's time to go widebody.
I would suggest just going widebody. I'm working on a Aerosim RS right now. A lot of work.
