Since it appears that there will not be anymore posts on this topic, I just wanted to say Thank you to all of you guys that posted pictures of your paint finishes and techniques used to get them that way. I hope all of the guys that had questions on which method is the best to use, got the answers that they were looking for, and can put either way to good use. My opinion is, either way gives a nice finish, as can be seen in some of the posts. No matter which way you decide to go with, just remember that the prep work and base coat is the major technique to get just right. Practice makes perfect, but then again, I don't consider any paint finish perfect, including my own, as there is always room for improvement. Just do the best you can, and be proud of what you did. Nobody is ever a loser as long as you did the best job you could.

Thanks again for posting guys, and you all have some really nice paint finishes!
