"Do it right or go home", that is most certainly not this pro! I can take short cuts with the best of them, as well as do main arena prestigious car show kinda work. My concern here is the old question "To what end". What are the odds of success? Be it me, or someone who has never touched a piece of sand paper in their life, often those odds are the same in the end.
I am all for doing anything you want to dive into this incredible hobby or industry. I have spent a ton of my own time writing articles and answering questions because I REALLY want to help those who are just dabbling in this work to do better, to demystify, to help in anyway to get some guy who has never done it to do it and be proud. I am all for that, in a big way. But I also have to do my warnings so as those same people don't bite off their tongue in the process.
This is just one of those warnings. That is all I will say on the subject.
