    Cool Re: thought to put up a gallery of my van as i'm slowly restoring it

    started sanding the rear doors, finding no bad surprises, no bog no rust, just little dents around where the hinges go, as most of these doors get from people trying to push the doors open more then they can go

    happy with how good they are

    There is nothing wrong with spray cans if done well, a pro in a booth might do better but an amatuer with a spray gun doesn't necessarily end up with a better job every time.
