Default learn from mistakes

Just started painting new body. Painted it pearl white light coat. Then I backed it w/ comp orange. IT CAME OUT PINK. Even my girl told me I can't show up at the track w/ it. Whatever you do , paint on scap so you know how it is going to turn out. This is my 10 th or so body. First time I ever ruined one.

Put a coat of brake fluid on the paint and let it soak for 20 min and it's ready to strip and start all over...
