Prep the car for all over paint. Tape at the line of the color change covering the biggest color. Spray the first color. Wait about 30 mins. Untape the covered area. Tape right on the paint edge you just sprayed. Cover the first color. Tack the rest of the car GOOD. Spray the second color. Wait about 30 mins and untape the first color. Tack the entire car GOOD and clearcoat. If you plan to sand and buff in the end, put 4 coats of clear on. I suggest palnning this so you can start wet sanding 24 hours after painting. The longer you wait, the hard it is to sand. Do all the sanding and buffing before beginning to intall trim etc..
