I want to give it at least a good 10 foot job if not a 6 foot job. I would like to stay away from rattle cans unless there is one that is really good. what I really need to know are the steps to painting 1. sand it down (what do I use to sand it down with toolwise and paperwise?) 2. primer (how many coats and is there a difference between rattle can primer and the other stuff if you're going to sand it for the paint?) 3. i've heared of guidecoat... (what is that exactly and is it necessary?) 4. paint (just enough to cover without any dark spots right?) 5. clearcoat (how much and do you sand down the paint a little first or am I loco?) is there anything i'm missing besides a tarp tent around it? I'm in AZ and my carport is always in the sun so I'm not to worried about having a place for it to cook up a bit. I intend on using a cheapo paint sprayer that I can toss after i'm done and I do have a compressor .
