fortunatly I don't have a sigificant other anymore, which is why I made sure to post pics of car parts in the house. If you have questions my brother taught me alot about painting this summer. I still don't think I could spray it, my arthritis makes holding a spray gun painful. Operating the DA sander, side arm (angle) grinder and the like wasn't too bad though. any how ask away if you have more questions, I didn't go into much detail in my reply. I didn't want to ramble on too much. For sure you should get some primer on the car where it's bare metal. stay away from spray cans, it could ruin your paint job. If you do use them strip it off before you apply your primer. My brother has been using PPG's ShopLine products, they're good quality and less expensive. The other plus is they're compatible with other PPG paints. Another thing I know I mentioned it but read the info on everything you use, for instance the body filler I used (RAGE EVERCOAT) recommends a specific grit of sandpaper for adhesion, and I applied it over primer as well as under. I just made sure to use the recommended sanding grit.
