Default painted door- came out great

Ive been posting these photos in the what did you do to your subaru thread. However I felt it came out so good, I needed more eyes to view it, maybe they can see evidence for themselves before buying and using this stuff. and also give a shoutout to the Grimspeed Spray paint.. That stuff is awesome.

long story short.. My pa was working on my ride in a apartment garage, it was in nuetral, no e brake.. rolled out of the garage, door was open, and the door outside where the handle is smashed in a tad.
pa got some ghetto, call this magnetic poster ona guys car to come do whatever it is.. bondo here bondo there and a door came back to shape..

many years later, tired of it.. Im planning on buying a new door before I paint the thing but wanted to try my hand at fixing it up for the time before that happenes.. and by golly did it come out as beutiful as I could make it... without clear out .. letting it dry the recommended time


what it looked like before sanding



sanded down and found some red stuff underneath. made everything smooth


first layer of prime


2nd


day later, sanded the prime all smooth and applied paint
applied about 3 layers. here it is drying


day later


another day later


now I wait before I try to clear coat it..
came out pretty darn decent for a newbie at these things..

tomorrow ill get a daylight picture.. it really blends in nicely.. Im really shocked how close the colors match, you can barely tell.
I need to wash my door as its dirty on the non painted section.. unfortunately I got some light overspray on the weather strip and slight over spray on the upper door section. I had it covered so Idk how da F that happened... Ill spray paint the strip black. and maybe give a nice coat over the overspray section or just clear coat over it to make it smooth ..

let me know what you think or just look in amazement. ha

I'd try doing the whole door at once. Hard to blend those areas. Also is it smooth?

Yeah Ive come to find out. This paint is awesome, it layers and dries to the feel of the OEM paint which really amazed me out of a spray can.. theres a tad lip, like a finger nail where I had it covered. Im thinking of giving the entire door a layer to blend it in but its also not that bad from what it looked like before.. So Im going to spray some clear over the section and call it a day.
