^use that as far as HOW to do it...

hmm... but as far as what color... it really depends on what style youre goin for, do u want it to pop or blend? Because either would look good...

haha, np... its easy... i could prob do it w/ my eyes shut... if u wanted to get kinda fancy w/ it & this paint my cost a tad more, but do a black w/ red flake... not too much flake... i have a friend who did his cav like that (well he made the paint, he does that alot, lol) & it looks great, the only time you can REALLY see the red is in direct sunlight thru the windows/sunroof....

pretty much... on the first sand you dont HAVE to WET sand it, just dry sand it to rough it up, clean it, let dry, primer, let dry, paint... THEN after the paint dries you can wet sand it a bit (but just a little) then let dry, then clear it to get it really shiney... i dont like mine w/ that much shine. so i dont clear my interior peices...

wet sanding just kinda smoothes the crap out of it... at any time i have to REMOVE some paint & start over, or like, change the color of my interior (ive done it 3 times already, lol) i always wet sand... but for the first layer before primer, i just dry sand... if ur not gonna clear it, you dont need that final wet sand... just let the paint dry & ur done... but i guess there are different ways of doing it, this is just how *i* do it, lol
