Prep prep prep! Make sure, then make sure again, that your surfaces are straight and smooth. Don't skimp on the primer coat, either. Black is gonna show EVERY flaw in your prep - rendering the prep work a waste of time.

Now that I got that outta the way, post some pics of your mk3!

If it's an MK3, it is an 86-92 (I believe), Toyota Supra

I've always wanted to put a Lexus V8 into an '82-'86 Supra. My friend had an '83 and let me drive it. I didn't get more than a couple blocks before I realized that that car drove better in every way (except for maybe acceleration) than the '82 Mustang GT I had at the time.

Looks like a good starting point for a fun project! Basically, the best advice I can give has already been stated: prep, prep, prep!

But please reconsider anything but blitz black. Maybe where you live they are rare and still cool, but where I live it has been done to death. Semi gloss or flat black is the new boring around here. The lines on that car are begging for something creative and unusual.

You can put paint on anyway you want so, yes, your electric sprayer will work even tho it's not made for that. Just start off slow to get the feel for it or get an old fender or hood to practice on first.

If you ever want to get any traction loose the big heavy over size wheels and rubber band tires, get some 15" wheels and drag radials for the rear.
Looks like a cool project.

Great color choice rock, I originally wanted to do that for the Mustang I'm rolling now. Just curious, if you rub the paint with your hands, does it leave marks or anything?
