Default Advice on paint

Okay so im getting a paint job and i wanted to know if the amount of layers really matter? And is it better having a certain number of layers? And yes im sure it needs paint i dont need to buff or restore the paint

also what do you guys prefer on the supra color 8d8 or 8g2 . original color was i believe 8d8 so i want to paint something similar

The original color code will be on the door jamb plate. I'm not a fan of light silver/blues myself... they always remind my of my mother's old Mercedes Benz station wagon. I'd be inclined to go with which ever is more silver.

I can't give you any more feedback than that though. Body work is one area where I am COMPLETELY lacking in experience. I really wish I knew of a way to attract one or two body work gurus... I've got some body work I'd like to learn to do myself but no one to hit up for help and no one to trade work with these days.
