      yeah don't spray bomb it.
      you don't use rattle cans to make it look "good"... you just do it cause it's cheap.

      just find a color you like, check out hot rod flatz paints. some paint supply stores carry their products. also most paint supply stores carry sealers/primers and they can be tinted almost anycolor and they come out satin or flat. or find the color you like and have flattening agents mixed in. I like satins, to me it brings out the true beauty of the car and its lines and curves.I did my bug in rattle can etching primer, looked great for a while but started to fade after a year.
      also you can use WD-40 on a rag and wipe down the flats or satins and it gives them a nice lil shine before the shows

      on the bug I did use rattle can but just because I am a do it yourselfer and where I lived I couldnt use a compressor and gun.
      if you do use rattle can I recommend that you use a quality brand like Krylon or Rustoleum and buy plenty of cans. I probably used close to 10 cans on that bug. you need lots of coats and good coverage or you will see it. so that was close to 50-60 bucks but I had to do it again like a yr later so there went another 50-60 bucks
      I recommend a cheap gun like from Harbor Freight, mine was like 30-40 bucks, borrow or rent a compressor(at least 25-30 gallons) and buy the paint and spray it right. it will be better in the long run, last longer and you will have better coverage. like I mentioned you can get sealer tinted to almost any color or go with hotrodflatz, they have some real dope colors and the kit comes with everything you need for like $150. so for a couple hundred bucks you will have it done right.
