Car respray/tech help/primer,paint,clear coat

i guys i recently started restoring my 96 mitsi lancer here are some pictures

i have just bought Isopon P38 filler to fill any small dents i have noticed + i have bought 1 litre of MaxMeyer HS Filler 3011 + 1 litre MaxMeyer MS Hardener 8000 + 5 mixing cups!it is 5/1 ratio.i have the necessecarys like a 1.4 spray gun/pressure gauge,huge compressor and air hoses!

i was wondering does anybody have and suggestions or tech help on mixing the primer and hardener for a ratio as 5/1?

also is isopon P38 filler good or bad for spraying over?

i want to do this right as i really want to get the grasp of spraying cars and making a living out of it!+ hints and ideas for this also lol

if you want to make a living out of it I'd suggest you go to school for it.

I took night classes for body and paint at my local community tech college because I wanted to do it right and do it well. Even with all the reading I do, I don't know how I'd be able to do this with any coherence without those classes. Having an instructor there physically showing you different techniques and having to practice them every night was experience I couldn't have gained in any other way.
