My paint was already in good shape. But it did have some swirls from the previous owner, and possibly a few from me on a lazy day running it through a soft cloth. I was planning to have my brother buff it out as he works at a body shop. Dropped it off with him this weekend and here are the results. Sorry for the iphone pics. I need a real camera. Let me know what you think? Also i need some spacers but i want absolutely no rubbing. What would be the safest bet size wise 5mm in the front 8mm in the back?
