Default Repainting 90' GT

If you've had your car repainted, then you understand how it is, when you decide to trust your project in somebody elses hands. You don't want some nit-wit making your car look like crap. You don't want orange peel, bad prep work showing through, etc...

SO

What makes a "great paint job" - a great paint job???

Can it be done in someones garage if they've got the skills??

DO you HAVE TO have a spray booth??

How much is TOO MUCH for a paint job?

How high of a grit should you go up to?

That page leaves out a lot of information. Also, most people recommend NOT using wax on it for over a month so the paint can cure.

Well I'm just referring to the waxing. A lot of people say wait to wax. Some clears get so hard after time they take forever to cut and buff
