i just painted my rex..flat black...came out amazing

and all i used was spray paint...just take your time and start from bottom to top as rocco said in another thread, do about 3-4 coats and do the seems and wells

well wat is ur garage if u want a nice clean paint job i recomend having a paint booth but if u dont u can make homemade booths for like 1 times use. but anyway like said above use a gravity fed gun make shure u stay at a consistant speed and how far away u are from the car make shure u have the whole car clean b4 u aint it so that u dont get fisheyes. u can buy fisheye eliminator for that if u still think u might get them.
