    That's true and each time you use it a little more of the clear coat is gone. All I was saying is the darker colors show more of the spyder webs and black is the worst. I've had a black car and a black bike, once was enough for me.:cheers:

    I painted my 69 SS396 Chevelle black when I was a teenager, I fucking block sanded that mofo for months! My Dad painted cars and motorcycles and was fairly well known for his work so he made sure I didn't fuck up my car, when I finally was able to paint it, wet sand it (cause it was real lacquer), then buff it out the fucking car was like looking into a mirror! Flawless! Best color by far if you take care of it and it's done right! Now, that being said, I will not ever own another black vehicle again because of the amount of work it takes to make it look "Perfect", I am way too busy to spend that much time rubbing on it these days, but I do still love a good deep black paint job, just far and few between.

    I never used a yard stick but all I remember was my Dad making me do it over and over again, sometimes we would wet sand it and buff it and if it wasn't to his liking he'd make me redo it again till it was perfect, and I mean perfect! I would get stopped while driving and people would ask, "who painted your car?" I'd tell em I did! For some reason I don't think they believed me! Haha!

    Have you found a resource to buy just the foam pad? I have the kit just need to reup the foam pads

    Black is a bear I agree, any little scratch shows unfortunately.
