Hers is my complete $300. paint job , done in my driveway . Both blue and gray are Home depot exterior latex house paint for metal , premium brand no less .
The black is high gloss tremclad , I used semi gloss black under the hood .The wheels are painted with rubber guard .
It was all applied by spray but I did have to invest in a spray gun with larger orifices to apply the latex .
The green paint was also the same kind of paint but in flat and it went over bear metal in places as well as primer and original paint with prep consisting of a quick sanding with 200 grit paper .This lasted 3 years until I decided to knock out the biggest dents and change the color.
The blue and gray paint job was completed In July of last year ( painted out side in my driveway ) and then we took off for a week to eastern Ontario for a few days all the while traveling in some serious down pours , which doesn't seem to have had a negative affect on the paint .Oh the most recent paint is semi gloss to hide the dents I didn't get .
My intent was not perfection but just enough to make traveling with me palatable for my wife .

Not sure what happened to the second picture ???

I am not an expert but was always told that by the time the clear failed, UV had reached and "killed" the basecoat. It would be interesting to hear the results. I suspect it will look much better but close inspection will always reveal where the problem was.

I’ll shoot a video as soon as I see the CRV in person. My wife took these pictures when she went to pay the bill today. She says it looks great. If she’s happy, then it’s a win . . . . as long as it lasts for a while. $460 out the door.

Color is darker than original. Some overspray from poorly masked areas. The finish is pretty decent and I don’t see runs or fish eye. Tires were properly covered and don’t show any paint. Glass isn’t painted either. So far so good. I’ll touch up the overspray and call it good. Wife is happy with the color, so the fact that it’s slightly darker isn’t an issue.

Looks like they can spray paint,most of the work is in the prep so time will tell but for that price if they were close to me I would be in .

I won’t let her drive it over 10 MPH for the next week so the paint won’t ripple. Ha ha!

Well...I would have lost money on that bet. It turned out pretty decent.
