Messed up paint

No, let it dry, sand/wet sand it (I usually use 600+ grit for most auto applications), dry & repaint. If you keep repainting, you'll have too many layers and it won't look as good.

If ya messed it up sand it and start over. The last thing you want to do with a paint job on anything is put a butt ton of layers of paint on it.

Exactly. Start with smaller projects if possible and work your way up to larger stuff. When in doubt, use less paint and always use primer when called for.

Yes take that cover of the paint can. Sand it and paint just practice 6 inches away and must paint no over runs one coat at a time
