Second Time paint Job, need advice

Hiya all, I'm new on these forums but they looked damn good!

Dont hassle me too much I'm from New Zealand so the products and terminologies here are a bit different from the USA.

I am about to embark on my second paint job ever, my first one I used PPG Acrylic Laquer system and it turned out quite well I think.

This time around I am going to try using a 2K product, hopefully a acrylic enamel.

From reading these forums I have come to the conclusion that I need to paint the car in the following order, can you please give me some advice so I know whether I am on the right track.

Brand Product Coats
------ --------------------- ---------
PPG Acid Etch Primer 2
--= Apply Body Filler =--
PPG 2k Primer/Filler BLACK 3
3M Dry Guide 1
--= BLOCK SAND =--
PPG 2k Primer/Filler BLACK 1
--= LIGHT SAND =--
PPG Color Coat WHITE (roof) 3-4
PPG Clear Coat (roof) 3
--= flash =--
PPG Clear Coat (roof) 2-3
--= MASK OFF THE ROOF =--
PPG Color Coat METBRG (body)3-4
PPG Clear Coat (body) 3
--= flash =--
PPG Clear Coat (body) 2-3


I am planning to use a Brittish Racing Green metallic pearl, PPG code 403201 on the body of the vehicle with a pepper white roof.

If any of you are wondering the car is a 1974 Austin Mini, not exactly a hot rod I know but maybe the next project will be!

I'm kind of new to this so any advice is really appreciated, especially on what paint system I should use.
