    DEAR EVERYONE!!!!
    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE ADVICE!!!
    the brake fluid turned out to be a winner, it just took TWO days!
    i repainted down the silver base, and it is drying
    i don't want to rush it this time, so i'm going to let it dry for a whole day rather than 12 hours.
    i gotta get this perfect!
    in the meantime, im painting the interior
    ill be sure to upload pics soon!

    I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I sprayed my car with candy apple red Testors paint, with a silver basecoat.
    since it was my first time, i messed up.
    i tried sanding it down the next day, but its hard to get into the ridges and to make bubbles go away.
    any advice?

    thank you everyone for all your advice!!!
    the color i really wanted to get at was the actual mustang color "dark candy apple red". I didn't know when i bought the paint that it needed a basecoat, and as someone said, the gold leaves it more orange, which i want it to be the dark red. copper would do darker orange i think. if i did get a red spraypaint would that make my candy color not show up? i do want it to be darker, just red, not tinted orange or dark orange or anything.
