Coming from experience with the duplicolor line... If you are ok with repainting in a year because it checked up badly and faded out then it's alright, but by the time you figure in the costs of a respray yearly, it adds up to the price of the good paint.

Yea well I am literally in between coats on the matte clear coating the spoiler. Just usin it as a test panel to see of I like it. It will be getting painted professional in a few years just doin what I can for now. We will see how she looks!!!
Thanks for the input but its actually an enamel base and when you do your research you can find that yes while laquer will dissolve enamel paints, if you apply it in thin coats after the enamel is dried it will work fine. If in a few years it ***** up I am not afraid to paint my car again seeing as this is my third time on my car alone. Thanks for your input but I will try things on my car as learning experiences.
The car looks great..... I'm ready to do this to mine and I understand the money thing some people want to brag about a 10 grand paint job and then trash everyone else...who cares if it checks do it again thats half the fun in it .....

some people are just scared of painting i think because it is a big task that is easily fucked up. Thats all part of the automotive industry though and i like to be able to do it all. I want my car to be completly my creation. That includes paint. The only thing i am a little leary about doing is tuning it when i get mods that require it. I do want to learn how to tune but that is something that i think may be best learned from a pro as opposed to just jumping in to figure it out!
