Pro spray is some of the best out there for the money but I've never used it.just folow the mixing ratio on the can. Dont worry about how it looks as your spraying ...since theres no metallics it's even easier all you have to worry about is your 50% overlap while spraying dont look at it from the side while your spraying.look straight at it at 90 degrees and your eyes should follow the gun...looking at your overlap ,nothing else.The base flatens out on its own as it dries...
In general,normally I dont ever touch the base when the last coat is done and dont even use a tack rag before I clear because it disturbs the metallics...being it's a solid color you might be able to get away with it but I wouldnt try it.you CAN sand between coats for dirt or trash ,someone else that uses this brand would be better suited to answear that. But tack the car and the paper with a blower before every coat,every coat but the last..

Its a little late now but what you should have used is prosprays SS then wet sand when its dry with 600 then clear SS sprays like dream compared to base.just spray it like you want it to look....
Those finish line guns come with many tips and it gets confusing....use the 1.4 for the base and clear ,the last guy I helped had a brand new one,when I went over I couldnt figure out why he was having trouble until I noticed he had the 1.7 tip ...
