ok , got it thank you. I'll sand all of the car with 800? or will 1000, 1500 be better? There really isn't a lot of orange peal , lot less than I thought. I was surprised how easily the large runs sand out.

Believe it or not, I change the plastic masking between every coat, except over the wheel wells . Would the paper be better? I noticed the plastic really attracts the over-spray.

Yes more light is definitely going to be added before the last clear is shot.
I did shoot in "street clothes", I'll get a bunny suite before spraying more.

For a word of encouragement to other newbies who are going to attempt this task, go for it !!! Just listen to the advice on this forum and you will have a nice paint job!

thanks again guys !! I read many of the how too's of painting , gun set up, body work , bondo usage. I'm very proud of what i have accomplished!!

The furnace is not used during painting, only before starting painting to get it warm , then off during painting, then after the temp drops enough after painting.
