Who has painted their own cars in their garage or back yard? Lets see them... I have never paint a car but will be painting mine in a few wks. Right now it has a 6 month old paint job that's butternut yellow.. I'll be painting it black! thinking of lining my garage with plastic and going for it! I'm not taking it dow to bare metal just sanding and going for it. I've been watching youtube vids on how to paint in my garage. I told two of my buddies I was going to paint my own car and they said it wouldn't turn out good.. That just pissed me off! Now i'm on a mission! This is what i'm starting with.
