What kinda car do you have?
I meant like a pic where it is all done and sitting so I can see the color shift.

I have a 00 miata and I shut the garage door on the bumper. So I put some epoxy on it and wet sanded it. Then sprayed some base and clear and feathered it out real nice. I am still working on it though. Getting good with the spray can!

I dont think you will be able to see the color shift because its not moving.
This might work a little bit better. My laptop is at work so I will have to take pictures later.

Thanks for checking out my Guide. Hope i give you the answers you want to hear

1- would any krylon primer work for plastic metarial jobs or is there a specific primer for that. If yes whats it called ?
I have never had a problem using any primer on plastic. If the surface is roughed up enough before hand it should hold just fine. Several coats will guarantee that it holds. A heavy first coat will help hide any imperfections in you case. Your primer has to be wet sandable is the most important thing to look for.

Quote:
2-Do u use a normal sandpaper for wet-sanding or are there sandpapers just for wet-sanding
The sand paper also needs to be for wet/dry sanding. It will say so on the package.

Quote:
3-Did u wet-sand between the base coats ? Or was it dry ?
On my paint I did sand in between the base coat and the top coat. You will only have a top coat. So do this...
Paint then look for blemishes and then sand the whole thing lightly with very high grit 1200+.
You just want to make sure that the surface is flat for the next coat. Your final coat needs to be perfect. If your final coat is not perfect Paint it again untill you get that perfect top coat.

Quote:
4-What brand should i use if i dont want color shift in my work (I want only black). Are base coat and clear coat used only in color shift jobs or any job?
If you are going for a jet black case and want the mirror finish go for the clear coat. The end result of the clear coat is awesome. Once again only sand your clear coat if there are any blemishes.
If you want another example of clear coat check out FoRmEd's Lappy paint overhaul here . At about post 80 he starts his clear coating.

I hope this answered your questions. I will be posting this in My thread for others to use this informnation. In the future I think i might update it to cover the things I missed.

Your pal
Spooked
