    man nice work!!! Ive been kicking around the idea of doing my own paint. Now I understand its all in the prepwork correct. But what kind of guns are you guys using exactly?? Id like to look into what kind of guns I need to buy to get something that will look good for a daily driver. IM not looking for a show quality finish, just something that will look good, and wont hurt when the jerks or rocks chip it.

    What's with the 65 in the picture? Looks like a photochop,unless that's just a pic of what you're planning to do. The coupe looks great, loved the flat black also. Welcome to the boards

    Hey man, I love the color and I chose that cobalt blue a long time ago as soon as it saw it. But im new to painting and have just come to the step in my fox's resto of paint. What kind of primer did you lay down and what grit did you sand the primer with before the paint? Also did you spray the primer on top of pic #2 as it was in the pic? Thanks man.

    Go to autobody101 dot com for a wealth of info for body work, sanding, priming, painting, techniques and paint gun info!! That kind of information your requesting is a whole lot of typing and a ton of info to put into it.

    Good luck
