don't forget the prepper. I was hurting for money one time and did the body and prep on this car, the painter was blown away by it. Should have seen his work he did by himself-lol. Half of what people glamour over is the bodywork/prep and buffing. I've seen cars get high reviews with slightly mottled paint, mismatched parts, but with good prepping. If I want to know about the painter I put a lot of emphasis on masking, how the jambs look, what his eyes can catch, and how he game plans. The foundation is good spraying.
