1 prep is the most important thing
2 for a good gloss they offer a hardner, you can spray it without it but the hardner will add gloss to the paint
3. If you do not have a paint booth it works well to spray outside early in the morning, the dew will hold down the dust. do not leave the doors outside unless you cover them with blankets or they will get dew on them as well
4 They made a product for wiping down the primer prior to spraying (precleano I think) that will help eliminate fisheye.
