First time painting a car

#1
After months of bodywork and primer sanding, I finally painted and clear coated the car. I made some mistakes but not too bad considering I did it in a homemade paint booth in my driveway. I am not sure if the pics will attach right. There is a weird shadow that shows on the view from the front. I used SPI primers and their Universal Clear.

I planned to use 3/4 in PVC pipe to create a frame and use plastic sheeting. Found out a small breeze made it too unstable. I ended up using two 10x10 canopies I had in my garage. Was a little tight on the sides but it worked. I recommend two 10×15 canopies so that you have 15 feet for the width of the car. Used a 24in shop fan and furnace filters for ventilation.
