Thanks guys, it's all in quality materials and prep I'm still learning as I go but my 2nd coupe build so this one is going a little easier. I'm currently cutting the clear down with 1000 grit wet sand and finishing with 3000 grit to get some small imperfections out Dust, orange peel, runs whatever is there then buffing it out with 3m compounds. Wish I had a booth lol I wouldn't have to pay 2000$ + just for someone to spray my car lol but it is what it is.

You can build a booth with pvc pipe, plastic sheeting, duct tape, and a few lights. I did just that for a friend once but I do not know what he used for an exhaust fan and filter; that came after I left and he is in the Fed so I can't just ask him.

This, I've seen some really nice work come out of garages, thrown up booth's, and shops that look like they might could fall down. A lot goes into removing dust, blocking dirty airflow, etc.

Great looking work sir.
