some jobs you just got to leave it to the pros .after having little bump with a stag =deer last week i had some damage to my bumper+ bonnet well did some fiberglassing and filling came out great. painted came out great .(clear coat omg what a mess lol ).totaly ruined all my hard work came out all orange peel affect so after paying for all the fiberglass fillers paints i was down about £60 .car is now going into paint shop at end of month for a proper fix £300 and it will be as good as new .lesson lernt tho wont go near paint again too much bother was even so fed up i wanted to sell my lovley wee spider so glad i am keeping her now
I second that. I had a small dink in drivers door. Small fill and touch-up. Ended up doing whole door up to waistline. Lovely job I thought, took hours, beautiful finish. Unmasked rest of car (I had simply used a car cover and stuck the edges down etc) to find the colour very slightly different!! If I'm feeling brave I'll do it again and add a tiny bit of silver to the paint, if I'm feeling sensible (and flush) I'll let the paintshop match it.
