I'd love to get a Beetle and make a "Hot Rod" like in this month's VW Trends.

You should consider opening your own body shop. What's your time frame for finishing the job? Are you sending it out for paint or do you have your own spray booth? You could go for that new 'hot rod' look and paint it black satin from a can.

Yes, hes doing a great job...
Here in Sydney, there is a club that has many flat black beetles & split windows kombis... It doesn't matter what the body is like as there is no reflection of light you can't see any imperfections.
I'm sure our friend here isn't going to paint his excellent work with flat black paint...
