Noob painting question about paint prep and primers

Paint & Bodywork Discussion Forum - Pelican Parts Technical BBS - forums.pelicanparts.com
Hi All,

I am slowly refurbing a 993 as my current project. I am an amateur wrench and do all of my work on my cars.

I am now moving to exterior updates. I will get the paint done by a pro as I want it done right.

I want to save money if there is simple manual labor a shop would otherwise charge me.

I have done some DIY projects with building tube amps and doing piano coat painting for the housing so know the basics of primers, wet sanding, clear coats, minimizing overspray, etc....

Do any of you have advice on where I can save?

1. Respraying a front bumper- the bumper has chips, pits, paint impact/pressure cracks

2. Prepping new plastic/poly urethane parts like ducts and splitter- these are all new components with no primer

3. Painting a decklid/duck- already been primed and block sanded

I assume I may need some panels blended as I have a Zenith Blue which is a metallic based CC paint.

Thanks!
