three words of advice,,, Preparation, Preparation, Preparation! 

You can buy the best paint in the world but it ain't worth a *** if the proper prep work isn't done right.

Jscann, Awlgrip is not cheap paint so make sure you have everything ready to go and mixed correctly. Make sure you have the proper additive for brushing or spraying application. Make sure you have the right protection when using it, pretty serious stuff. Just got done spraying the console on my bay boat. The link will help you for the type of product you are using. Look at the top of the pages for the product you have and it will have the proper mixing instructions. Good Luck.
