Thanks guys for the help. I'm gonna try the test panel and if that goes well I'll use it. I'm fixing this car to sell to finance my next project so if I can save a few bucks on paint that'll help my bottom line.
I've only painted 2 cars before, this will be my third using the acrylic enamel. I will definitely try the urethane next time, maybe a base clear. Just trying to learn as I go along. Thanks for all the help.
