Looks like nice work you're doing!! I'd like to paint my own car, but need to serve an apprenticeship under someone for awhile before I'd feel comfortable enough to do it.

..It`s all in the prep...The hardest color i have ever painted was satin black..How it comes out of the gun is how it stays..no color sanding ..blocking..or buffing... I will be doing it RWB from left to right not front to back so it should be different...Here`s a little video from when i shot the metal flake on my wagon roof...it took a full day(3 coats of gold base..3 coats of flake..5 coats of clear) ...then blocked..and 3 add`l coats of clear         https://youtu.be/P4u9jLPdR08

Not a highly productive day placed the hood back on (Neither the hood or fenders are bolted in place)but did get the shop cleaned to keep working
