Black Cherry Pearl on 70 Grand Prix Model J

I'm going to shoot this PPG Industries product, Black Cherry Pearl, myself. What tips can you give me for an awesome end result?
We took the GP down to the metal, filled, sanded and just shot the primer 2X, sanded, filled, and sanded some more. We're ready.

Wet sand, then wet sand some more, then wet sand a little more. Seriously a good paint job is all about elbow grease, quality materials, and following good procedures.

Tuscan Jay,
IDK if this color is a cadillac color, just sounded awesome for a custom color for an update on the Black GP!
