Fantastic guide, I have signed up purely to say thanks. I'm going to be spraying a car in the not too distant future as a novice and this has answered a lot of questions and given me some inspiration.

So thank you.

Thanks for your efforts with this guide. I've taken the liberty of converting it to a pdf format with bookmarks, so you can navigate through it more easily. Hope that is ok?

Hi Shaz,


To echo others; great guide, thanks very much. I have grey primed my entire car and have a smooth finish, but as I have not done this before (and am being fairly realistic regarding my ability and on my budget etc) what type of paint do you recommend? and can you recommend any brands of paint that will give a nice metallic dark grey finish?

Thank you for all your time in sorting out this post. It takes alot of effort and time to write such an in depth post..

It would be nice if members would actually read the whole post before asking a question which you have already taken so much of your own time to cover in this post. 





Again thank you..


All the best
