Hey Mbad ,no Disrespect But, Maybe You Should Work Your Way Up To That. If Your Asking Those Kind Of Questions , Your Not Ready.

You go for it mbad7. Just remember it is only paint and labor.So when in doubt pull the paint gun trigger and worry about it later.Good Luck

Keep us posted mbad,good luck with your project.

I've painted two of my work trucks with fantastic results.The previous owner of one of them couldn't believe it wasn't professionally done.
I feel more comfortable with enamel that has a hardener added to it.
On my first spray job,I forgot to have a filter on the compressor and all the rust from the tank sprayed onto the surface.I saved the paint job by a lot of wet sanding and polishing,but it ended up mint.
