CC Question: Did You Ever Try Painting Your Car?

This rather random shot I took a while back asks a number of questions I can’t answer. Like why is he painting the van with a brush in a downtown parking lot on a drizzly winter day? Why all the wood planks underneath it? To make another door, like the rear one? Let’s not even bother to answer them. But it does beg the question: did you ever try painting your car? And how did it come out?

Me: after my older son rear ended someone with our red ’92 Caravan, I put a new fender and hood on it, and bought several cans of matching spray paint. I guess it looked better than before I put the new sheet metal on, but it felt like fine sandpaper. Never mind the run. I should have just used a brush too.
