Nicely done and very brave to try a metallic first time round.
The first car I sprayed (outside) was my Lotus Seven S1. The compressor was powered by a washing machine motor, still in its Hoover chassis and the collector was a fire extinguisher body. I used an electric gun for the hi-build primer.
I put enough top coat on to be able to polish it down to a rather good finish and was very pleased with it.
My Z300S was sprayed professionally about 9 months ago and I've done nothing to it except wash it v-e-r-y carefully. No runs and no drips. My mistake was not inspecting the primer coat before the top finish and sorting the few imperfections which were down to my prep of the grp body but only I know where they are!!!
