True Grit

“True Grit” a 1969 movie with John Wayne, where a drunken, hard-nosed U.S. Marshal and a Texas Ranger help a stubborn teenager track down her father's murderer in Indian territory. I see a parallel.

So what do you do after you shoot a freshly painted car with clear coat? Why you sand it ot course. Colour sanding removes the orange peel appearance and, if that sort of thing is important to you, it’s a necessary step. How? Well you use the sweat of virgin unicorns, distill it, and then add it to 3M 5000 grit sandpaper. That leaves the glossy material looking frosty (see the door photo above). After it’s all done then its hit all over with wax. In other areas, the authentic 1951 commercial license plate I bought 8 years ago is painted and ready to go.
