Are you talking about doing the whole car in Sem rattle cans or using a spray gun? The rattle can method should work but expensive...The only other problem would be that Sem doesn't have a lot of UV protection in it and over time (maybe 3 to 5 years) it would oxidize, just like it does when used on moldings etc...it's not really made for overall use and especially top panels where the sun constantly hits the vehicle. For the proper UV protection you could use a black base coat with a satin clear over top, this way you have the look and the protection at the same time.

Hope this helps.
