As in involving Paint? NO... Involving a full size truck, using a Air gun, Mixing, Clearing.. YES!

take your time, when you paint, dont try to make it pretty on the first coat, just barely cover it, let it dry, then keep doing till its satisfactory. Make sure your air gun has a good water separator on it as well.
