Painting my half cab

#1
Hello,

I just purchased a used half cab for my 8 and Im going to do some body work and paint it. Someone painted it smooth gloss black, and I don't like it. I want to know the best way to get as close as possible to factory finish. To be honest, I've never seen a half cab up-close in person. I am clueless.

Thanks.

Looked into the 3m product, I saw another forum talking about it as well. It still needs to be top coated, which still leaves me wondering what the best matte or semigloss finish would be. Im also afraid to experiment with it at $35-$40 a bottle.

Gel coat sprayed with heavy texture. I am not sure what the product name is but I believe it is 3M. Did a 7 top with a matte finish.Have to have a gelcoat spray gun.

I think semigloss finish is a better choice. Matte finish is good also but a bit PITA to keep clean.
