Like the results and impressed with your progress. Question, because your in the biz. What's the procedure for removal and touch up on a steel panel if welding is required after p coat?

The only real option is to get the color matched at a paint store and touch it up. I had a roll bar built once and coated it mostly together then welded it in, I touched it up at a couple welds and it looked good. Powder can also be sanded and buffed after touch up, just be careful you don't use a heavy grit paper, start with 1000 and finish with 1500-2000 and buff with a wool pad.

I just learned that the hard way. Pretty messed up, broken and cut to the bone, no more of my tool for me. My daughter was messing with it just before me so it was a real eye opener and I would suggest everyone beware and take your advice.
