So going off topic, my day job I work mostly at main car dealerships and some prestige dealerships, making things shiny and pristine again! Any cars traded in with scuffs and bumps, I basically repair and re-paint. Alloy wheel refurbishments and interior repairs.
However it’s when I get home the real passion for paint begins.
I’ll stary off with a few pics of stuff I’ve painted for folks

Tank hand lettered and pinstriped,

That's some great work, is the pinstriping by hand?

I did give it a go for about 8 months, but over here there isn’t really enough call for it, not like there is in America. It’s good if you can get the work, I went through periods of having loads of work 1 month which meant lots of cash but the next month or two I’d have none and be living off the profits. In the end I decided it wasn’t a steady enough wage, whereas accident damage is plentiful, hence the day job, I’m still painting, I quite enjoy it actually, it’s pretty challenging
I’d rather be doing this kind of stuff as a hobby, otherwise it becomes a chore and the passion gets lost in it
