Default Frosty

I just got a 2001 Club car that is in very good shape just the usual couple scratches and weathering. I want to paint it but have some questions for those that may have some experience doing what I want to do. I've done my fair share of research about prepping plastic so I feel comfortable there. What I'd like to do is use the Duplicolor "paint shop" system on the cart after prepping and adhesive promoter... I'd like to do the base coat then the metallic clear mid coat then the matte clear to get that frosted metallic look that I'm after. Has anyone used this system for a golf cart body and if so can anyone give me the pros n cons. I've used the duplicolor system on metal stuff in the past with good result and I like the no mix ease of use. But being this is lacquer will it work ok if prepped right? is the matte clear durable enough? easy to care for? etc.

How bad is the body? I have completely changed the appearance of carts with a $15 harbor freight buffer and Maguires cleaner wax...

I wish somebody who has used this system would chime in. I've never used it either.

So got it all done minus one more army star and a couple American flag decals for the front but you get the idea. It started out (bought it) with a new lift kit, tires, wheels,and a rear seat kit. but body and associated plastic/ metal bits needed to be repainted,windshield and new black seat covers.... Basically the look I was going after. Went with VHT Engine metallic in burnt copper because I loved the the color. Did 3 coats base and 4 coats matte clear. I custom fabbed the brush guard and mounted LED's in front on the vertical (because 99% of ppl would've mounted them horizontal lol....gotta be the odd one) Painted the roof and added fender flares...I hope this works... I suck at computers lol. http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/attac...1&d=1556064119 And yes I suck... The one image I wanted to show is sideways hahahaha
