Also to a point i'll paint your car in any quality paint you want, these guys think it's better and specify the quality, some rally cars I do I wouldn't paint gates with the crap paint I use on them but after a race season the bodies are so damaged and there's no paint on them anyway
Have to love a practical craftsman ...

Another patch done, I am gonna try to planish the low spot (weld seem)to try and bring it up. Is there way to keep it from shrinking so much when I weld it? Maybe move my cut line closer to the edge?

Eric, Definitely don't weld closer to the edge as trying to stretch the corner will be harder and you will have work 2 sides rather than 1. You will never get that smooth straight line, without lots of work. Were you have welded it is good, as its much easier to stretch that weld bead.

Thanks for the info Shorty. I have never heard of this paint before. Is it cheaper or more expensive compared to 2k systems.

It's not cheap oldnek, part of the Dupont /Axalta range of high solid paints.
I've used Dupont systems for the last 25 years never had one come back from a paint failure.
