how much you wanna spend? what kinda paint you wanna use? you wanna use a gun or spray can paint? Tom and Tony's way of course is the expensive route to take (comparatively speaking)

in my opinion, it would be cheaper and easier to experiment with the cheap stuff. come check out mine on monday and see the spray can job i've done, not perfect but good enough for me.

I think it is pretty awesome that these guys who make money doin this are willin to tell at least the basic secrets of the trade.
Props to ya!
I have only painted a little (a couple of DC-9s and a few Lear jets is all) but I would agree that the preparation is key. Spend 5 times the effort on prep and the paint is not hard at all.
Skimp on the prep and all the paint skill in the world will be wasted.

spray can is cheap, but its a to clean off, u'll spend the same amount on sandpaper as u would have spent painting it correctly....tony is having fun sanding down derek's(mulatto) fairings....i advise to stay away from spraypaint if possible.

so what about orange peel? i thought the wet sanding between coats would help eliminate that or any dust that was flying around when spraying.

yep. prep it good, and you won't need it. but if it has slight orange peel....it can be easily wetsanded and buffed out, but that's where more money comes to play.

wet sanding between coats is only necessary for show quality paint job. you are talkin $$$ for a flawless job.

dust is not your only problem. main problems can be laying coats down too thick and not leaving time to dry between coats (known as flash time), then you got moisture in your air lines (inline disposable filters usually rid that problem), you got humidity, oil/grease on whatever you're painting. can be many many many problems.......but as tom stated, get a mop and wet the floor so dust won't kick up. the other problems are corrected with practice and good prep work.
