The book gives more than enough detail for this, all the way upto painting the entire car, although not sure i would paint a whole car myself.
Well worth a read saved me and my painter lots of hassle, and also me some money, and helped get the project finished better.
this is my only car painting book so I cant say if its better or worse than any other, but I can say its a very well thumbed read and has provided me with a lot of information which has allowed me to develop a clear process for painting my car.
I hope this review helps.
The only thing you can not get from the book is how hard could it be to actually practice what they write. You must in fact go and try them yourself.
