Thanks! I'm just a guy trying to save a little $$$ by spraying at home. I'm pretty happy with the results, so far.

I DO appreciate the advice guys.

I recorded my spraying sessions, well I forgot to record the first one. This time around I mixed the paint 4:1:1, just to see how it would do. It came out pretty good, other than my newb painter errors and limitations of painting in a garage.

Second coat of black.

Second coat of clear. My creeper tried to sabotage the paint on my deck lid. I laid the second coat of clear on wet so I will have some material to sand.

Here are the results. The wife got involved.

I plan to sand with 600 and then lay a flow coat. I'll post the results.
