Have you considered using the single stage paint, and mixing in some clear in your top coats? I think that looks much better than base/clear and closer to *original*, and still has a great shine once sanded and buffed out (like lacquer)..
Thank you, but after I shoot my first car with BCCC about 15 years ago, I have never looked back. Honestly I just prefer 2 stage and since I do all of my painting out of my garage is gives me a more flexibility in case I run into a problem.
Thanks again for the suggestion,
