I didn't have any automotive painting experience at all prior to this. Honestly, i was like, "O Crap... what have i done?" after i put the 1st coat of primer on... Like i mentioned above, i could've done a better job priming. I would suggest you prime until you don't see anything that looked like the hole before applying the base coat.

I drove it to work, alot of my friends and coworkers can't even tell I painted it. It looks great. I do think you should probably polish it afterward to make it shinier.

I would say just make sure u sanded it down perfectly smooth after filling, or else texture will appear after you put your colors on.

Hope that helps.
