    This is going to cost you fortune in rattle cans and lacquer cans are you intending on doing it all in one or panel by panel ?

    Would it not be cheaper to hire an air compressor and airgun?

    if you change the colour are you just doing the outside only ,

    or are you including inside engine bay , behind bonnets , behind doors , behind boot , shut lines ,, etc , etc ,

    i.e. if you open up a white Corsa , will you find a red Corsa inside .

    For your other idea ,

    just undercoating and repraying on top ,

    if you chip or scrape the new white paint , it will reveal the red paint underneath .

    Just my 2 pence of things to think about .

    Good luck on your project .

    Prob will cost more than the car! you could mop the car with compound then polish. or maybe sell and get a white one!
