Rattle Can Paint Job

I'm sure there's plenty of thread on this but I couldn't find any with the right info. Looking for any links to tutorials on how to do this and pics if you've done it yourself. And before I get a bunch of replies not to do it, relax I just want to see how it's done. Saw this on Jeepforum.com 20 rattle cans the guy used.

Remove all the parts you don't want painted, have plenty of tape and newspaper for the glass.
Most of the work is in prep time, depending on how you want it to look in the end. Also get a handle to shoot the cans with. Creates a much more finished looked. And less finger fatigue.
I sanded, fixed dings and dents, wiped it down. And on mine I used Duplicolor Spray on bed liner. I like it.
I have looked at quite a few rattle can paint jobs that look nice.

RustOleum Painters Touch 2X. You can get it at Home Depot. $3.44 per can. It goes on twice as thick(hence the 2x). I removed all the trim and washed the vehicle twice. Then sanded it down with 220 wet or dry. Next I washed the vehicle again and let dry. After that I wiped it down with lacquer thinner and let dry. Then I taped off what I didn't want painted and shot the first coat. It took 3 cans. Let sit for 30 minutes and shot the second coat. 3 more cans. Then after a couple of weeks I wet sanded with 2000 grit, polished it with a 10" buffer, and then waxed it.

Yes, the wet sanding was a PITA. It took me about 6 hours or so to completely wet sand that.
