You are 100% right that I did make it sound easier than it may actually be. So in a nutshell it certainly would be easier and more controlling to paint the car together if it were a metallic base.
Thank You, I try and put myself in their shoes and remember my own learning curve...It didn't happen overnight and it's not done yet...I was fortunate in a way, I didn't learn from just one painter, I looked after a lot of body shops with respect to paint problems and it wasn't uncommon for me to call a painter in different shop when I didn't have the answer to solve a painter's problem in another shop.

The cool thing is, no matter how long we are in the trade, things will change and we never stop learning.
