Don't feel bad, I battled with a fine mercedees silver a few days ago and I've had paint guns in my hand since 1983. Some colors are a bear and some paint brands are more difficult than others for example: DuPont's Chromabase and Chroma Premiere basecoats are very sensitive to metalic hangups on scuffed areas-with fine metalics they will highlight even 1000 grit scratches so using an intercoat clear before the blend is a necessity with those. If you can master the metalics then solid colors will be a cake walk.
