With BC/CC the base goes on dry like primer so you dont have to worry about runs. The clear goes on similiar to the enamel, but if you run it you can just sand it out and buff to a shine. For part time garage painters this is very important. If you dont do it every day, you dont have the "touch".
If you weren't doing a metallic, and were using a flat or semigloss paint (such as the blitz black) do you think they would be still difficult?
