Re: Spraypainting Books ?

If you are spraying at home, then you need to use acrylic paints, a 50/50 mix of paint and thinners has worked best for me, in about 20-25 degree heat.

What are you planning, minor repairs or a whole car re-spray.

What air compressor have you got, or planning to get.

Have you ever sprayed with cans of paint before ?

Re: Spraypainting Books ?

Coat wise you do as many as the paint you've got will allow especially on the front of the car.

On average most places depending on paint coverage would put 4->5 coats of color and 2-3 or clear. When I did mine I managed about 8->10 coats I think and about 4-5 coats of clear.
