im no painter but i plan to spray my car for the time being. i cant afford a paint job right now, so while im still building i want to drive it! i want to paint it a primer or flat navy blue. and the top silver flaked out. can you give me some pointers?. im not looking for it to come out great just better that what it is now! so should i sand the car??? or can i just paint the flat color over the existing paint? wet sanding process???? what should i do, again its just to pass the next summer coming up! and once im fully fully done ont h e build i will send the car off to a professional painter, but for now i want thsi done and the cheapest way possible is doing it myself. so anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it! thanks
