    I am going to paint my 1972 cadillac el dorado. I wuz thinking that a orange creamy color would look good on it, something different. This will be my first time painting and I dont know shit about it. I would be very thankful if u know a site that has a great tutorial on painting from sanding to the end step what ever it is :). Also do any of u know a good site with paint?

    :eek: i've prepped my cars for painting..but i didn't do the actual painting..

    its a lot of work..if you have a lot of dents..it will be tricky because you have to bondo...or else your paint job will look like shit.

    Honestly, I don't know much about painting cars. The best advice I've seen as far as how to do it, is in a Haynes service manual. My Dad had a Bronco that he repainted using only the instructions in the manual. Came out damn good, too. Unfortunately, this is my only advice.
