Also the last coat, I would thin it a tad more if it was a metallic and give it a final spray to eliminate any possible tiger striping.
Yep you are right, that was YEARS, we are talking decades ago. You best not try that today unless it says it on the tech sheet. Loading up the paint with reducer is a sure way to have some killer die back!
