Biba, thanks for your comment. We are in violent agreement.

The quality of the final paint is determined by how well the bodywork is completed (mostly sanding)the prep work prior to paint (all sanding) and after paint is applied the color sanding (more sanding) and polishing (not quite sanding). This applies to all types of paint, single stage or two stage (base/clear).

When I get more time, I was planning on writing a primer on paint prep and sanding in general.
