So I tried to mix the flakes into the paint, but when I got to the final coat, my gun shot out a blast of flakes on the trunk! They look like a PSM sneeze! I'm wondering if I can just sand it out, or do I need to go and get another quart of paint? Also when I painted the trunk I had it flat, but felt like I should have had it up at an angle, it felt awkward shooting the top, what do you usually do?
Sorry to hear that man. Were you using single stage or base/clear?

When I'm painting a trunk I normally just rest it on a stand and the "top" is at about 45*. Laying it flat has no negative ramifications, and if you're using a clear you can hammer it on.
