one thing ive learned the hard way is paint shrink !! it looks great and then a month later the paint cures in the sun and you start to see all the sand scratches , some body shops in buss for many years still dont know what they are doing wrong , the secret ??? stay away from lacquer based primers , yes they are easy to sand , but they also shrink the most later on , i now use 2 part primer surfacers . next . guide coat , guide coat as seen in the pic is used to find low and high spots BEFORE you paint and see all the flaws . spray it on light or heavy and then block sand in a crisscross motion , see the dark spots ??? they are low spots and would appeared wavy once painted , this part of my car was never damaged to my knowlage and when it was black i really didnt see it , but i want to look as good as it can so i will block this until its perfect . more later
