then another 80 hours to wet sand the color
all three with way over the needed time to block,spray,wet sand.
is still 180 hours
they are quoting it needing 240 to 320 hours.
that's 60 to 140 more than my generous time table.
for a car this size
I'm not saying your wrong, I'm not saying your right...what I am saying is we don't know what is happening...How, many times do you prime and block a car before you are ready to apply paint...don't care if it's pearl, BC/CC, single stage. How many times would be the right number of times to block sand and re prime and so on for YOU to get a car ready for paint?

For me, my answer is how ever many it takes to get it straight.

Sometimes when we actually do things we appreciate much more what it takes to get it done.
