I saw the muscle car show where they painted that mustang. It looked absolutley horrible. Dont get me wrong I cant paint a house, but I can spot lousy work.
I saw an article in hot rod IIRC, where they painted a car with a roller and put on like 12 coats, then wet sanded and buffed the car and believe it or not it looked decent, better than just OK. Not making any suggestion here though, just talking here.

A good cut and buff can make just about anyone look like a good painter.

That is for sure. Except if you run or slide a metallic, no amount of sanding or cut and buff will fix it. That's why it's best for a first time painter to stick with solid colors.

I'd stay with 1.4 for single stage paint or a clearcoat. 1.8 I use for primers, sealers and surfacers.

Is Kirker A Good Brand Of Paint?im Thinking Of Going With Their Ultra-glo (au)
My only experience with Kirker, has been with their enamel (catylized), and it did exactly what I expected it to do, Made a '67 nova look like an un-adulterated '67 nova. (after a few months it looked like origional factory paint would after 30 years of abuse).

I prefer Concept for SS, But there are others out there that will be just as good (mabe). Concept is expensive, but you get a pretty "big bang" for your buck. A gallon will give you enough to paint, block sand, color sand, and buff a '55 chevy. YMMV.
