Wow!!!   Shocked Shocked wowowow!!!  It looks great!   Smiley. I wish my floors were that nice!  I spent many hours saving my trunk floor, and yes, nobody will see it ( or my stamped trunk floor mat), but it's there and the floor is perfect and original!  Well worth it but something not many will appreciate.
 
Nice work!!
 
Cheers Smiley

Thanks Dave! We did start with a pretty clean piece. Still, a tremendous amount of work and $$$$!

It was tough trying to decide how much overspray to apply. I originally wanted  a lot of paint but eventually went with the "industry standard"  

 
I still think I want more paint on the bottom! Looks pretty good though.

Only three dents in the entire car. Two of  
'em were on this filler panel.

The grey paint used on the floors is a custom mix of PPG products. My painter said that if he told me the formula, he would have to kill me! Shocked
