    anyone here ever dealt with Rolfs import auto service? I have a buyer flying up from California to buy my convertible, and he wants them to do a pre purchase inspection. I'm not usually one to let anyone touch my cars, so I'm a little nervous. just want to make sure these guys knows what the heck they're doing

          Make sure you have an extra high/low lense before you start you're guaranteed to break at least one. I'll never do it again. Next time I'm just gonna buy new ones. It took me 3 days to do one side, I managed to get the other side done all in a day.

                  Nice, I did that too. Small things like that make a huge difference.

                    What did you guys use for that?
                    Just duplicolor undercoating or what?

                      Well the undercoating is under a couple layers of paint. At the factory they spray on the undercoating and textures, then the paint color (alpine im my case) then they mask and spray the black parts black. So I just:

                      Cleaned
                      Lightly Sanded
                      Wiped clean with microfiber
                      Automotive Primer
                      Trim paint (satin finish)

                      The final coat is your choice imo, you can do it gloss, semi gloss, matte, or satin, depending on how you want it. I wanted Semi gloss for a factory look but there wasnt any, so i settled for Satin trim paint.

                          Is the 3m a matte or satin?

                                Sort of a satin it's textured so it's hard to tell , but it's definetly a nice deep black
