Bought all the recommended supplies and shot mine tonight..Looks freakin sweet! This is the first car I've ever painted and with the help of my dad I think it turned out really nice. Had a bit of a learning curve, but I REALLY like it. NEver has my LS looked so sinister! This is with two coats. Better pictures when its fully assembled

I like the term "sinister" for it.

I'm wondering....can you sand defects out of the finish? I've never painted a car, but with the shops wanting over $3k to paint a 5th gen El Camino I might give it a try. I like the black satin look, but what about maintaining the finish? Obviously you wouldn't wax it. How would one keep it spot and streak free?

Also, should I paint it while the front clip is off and apart? Seems like the best way to get to the door hinge area, inside of the fenders, and the like.

Hey brotha, the car looks evil man! Did you have to put a coat of primer on first or is it a primer paint itself?

we've painted deby cars with Rustoleum's $20 dollar a gal black from Walmart....forget what we used for thinner, but I was amazed at the overall quality! got me thinking, taking enough time to prepare the car and being careful mixing and spraying, you could turn out a really nice paint job with their paint!
