on a car that has no dents to dings to fix id say you should spend about 20 hours of prep time before u even think bout priming and painting. the more time spent. the better the outcome

Ill add, if you think your car has no dings or dents you suck at blocking! lol

Take faded paint, and make it shiny and it looks like your car was parked on a driving range.
