This stuff is harder to use than candy. No 2000 grit sanding, no clear coat, no buffing, this sounds like easy to use back yard painting. IT"S NOT!! It is a battle between streaks (like you get with a spray can) and orange peel. Put the stuff on wet enough to not streak and you get orange peel and sags. Back the flow down to get a smooth, even coat and you get streaks in the LRV. This paint may work well for small projects but it is a nightmare for a whole car! I have painted my truck 3 times, used 2 gal.s of paint, (this does NOT include the bed) at 2 different paint booths and am very unhappy with the results. If you want a flat look just put down a smooth coat of base, wish I had. For anyone wanting to use this paint, I would suggest painting a 4X8 piece of sheet metal as a test before committing to a whole project.
