      3 coats of base coat done. Have a few drips to take care of and then I’ll clear it. I’m pretty happy overall with the rattle cans!

        you're fooling yourself if think a rattle can paint job will be "ten footer", If rattle can is your thing leave the dent alone, it goes along with a rattle can paint job.

          I like to learn things the hard way and compound my problems as I go.

          Some more sanding and bondo, then laid down 2 more base coats, then 3 coats of clear coat. Done!

            Anyone have any suggestions on how to wet sand and polish the car now? I’m referring to specific compounds as well as grits of paper to use?

            While you aren't wrong at all, people over simplify how easy it is to shoot paint with a gun. No only do you need a big compressor that puts out a lot of CFM, but you need a way to cool the air and then a filtering system after that. Not everyone is ready to throw down that chunk of cash just to get clean air out of the gun.
