Awesome, thanks for the quick response! I will def check into everything you said, as well as looking for the name brands (if they even matter). I was worried about the sanding part, had a friend who did exactly like you said, too much and it looked layered, not what I'm going for. I'd rather find the exact color (midnight blue metallic just doesnt cut it haha) and as far as the time involved - same as the specific coloring, if I'm going to do this I want to do it right so if it takes half a day to a day, who cares. I'm trying to get everything lined up so I can purchase all the paint and do everything at once. Again, thanks for the info maybe I'll be able to do half as good of a job as you did!
