The body on my truck was far from perfect and my pockets aren't deep, $51.00 in paint and sanding blocks is what I have in it. Only got the doors and one fender sanded so far. Hopefully will get the rest sanded and paint logos on this week.
Keep it very subtle like you have it.
The ones where they sand out too many random spots just doesn't look right.
Some knock fauxtina, but I like the practicality of it.
