Smile Trep Cruzin's 3 stage paint thread

I decided it's time to re-paint my car.....after 10 years on the road it's showing its age. After thinking long and hard, I decided to paint her with 3 stage pearl from House of Kolor.



Here's some pictures of the progress.......at this point I have removed the dents and dings....and have finished those spots off with about 5 coats of primer.









at this point I start to remove the external trim arount the doors....antenna...and some of the left over lettering.

I'm not paint expert, but with a 3 stage paint wouldn't you want to get it all painted at the same time? might be hard to match later?

Is that the pre-blended Kandy stuff? I never used it before. I thought that was primarily for airbrushing and small projects like bike helmets and goalie masks.
