I would ALWAYS suggest some formalised training, just to give you some tips and to prevent you from having to learn from mistakes. A car is someone's second most expensive investment, so it's always good to have a bit of experience and knowledge behind you.

For example, did you know that different basecoat colours require a different colour of primer to ensure a match? Before I started my training - I didn't.

It's things like that which mean the job is done right first time, and your reputation (and business) grows.

That is what i was thinking, but i was going to tell them, to give 'constructive critism' in regards to my work and not be too light on noticing any problems / blemishes e.t.c, and yeah training is the way to go lol, i wonder if i know anyone with S.M.A.R.T experience on here who could help me out

Farther of two:

Oh and my partner, good sandwich maker
