If you know of any good DIY cheaper end products you could recommend to achieve the pigment/basecoat mixing I'm trying to achieve, I'm all ears. I'm just trying to be weary of getting too much into this for a one time project, and one thing I do know about autobody is that the price of pro grade products can stack up fast. I'm also the type of person to get too invested once I allow myself to throw serious money around, and I am avoiding that at all costs.
If you're just wanting the car repainted, you can sand and prep it and then take it
to the local Earl Shwab or equivalent to get it sprayed.
If you really want to DIY and have a spray gun, then do as suggested and pick up
some inexpensive automotive paint. The Rustoleum Masstone is a water-based
enamel intended for industrial use and won't hold up long enough on a car to
make it worthwhile....
Thanks for the suggestion. Are there any lower cost auto paints you know of? I'm not that familiar with brands out there.
