thats all stuff you'll learn. it varies from product to product. lots of guys on here will recommend different guns for different applications,but starting out I dont think you'll even feel that much of a difference between guns. as far as painting goes, I'd say you need a good 1 or 2 solid color jobs before going to patterns. I liked to practice on little things,but to tell you the truth, that helps you with all the techniques except actually how to paint a whole car. so if you wanna practive patterns, tape out methods, fades, etc, try that on the small stuff, but dont except to transfer all that over tol a car just as easily.

i would start with either ppg or duponts bc/cc line if you have ppg available start with there (omni mbc) line it 50/50 paint to thinner mix and there clear is 2 to 1 mix easy cheap and looks good if applied right. :biggrin:

ps dupont works also just more $$$$
Dammmmmm i like that bootie on your index pic did u shoot clear over it :cool:
