Ok, maybe Ill look for a nice solid color that I like. I really want to get that "wet" look. So I would like to sand the base coat before I clear it. Im not really sure what color I want to go with though. I was originally thinking like a dark gray with metallic in it, but seeing as how you can't sand that, maybe Ill just get a dark grey, like a charcoal and use that. And also, how far should I sand the existing paint before painting. there are about 2 spots from when the previous owner had it painted where the paint looks like it has actually peeled. This is on the rear bumper. And there are chips on the hood and one on the driver side door. The chips are very small but about the diameter of about a pencil I would say, maybe a lil smaller. Do I sand the whole car, then fill those in with a small dab of body filler? I mean they arent big but if they arent filled in, there is no way in hell they can be covered by paint alone. I don't know if the paint on the car right now is 1 stage or 2 stage, does that have any effect on how much I have to sand it down before painting the base coat on?
