Which McLaren?
I am going to go out on a limb here.
Painting is not as hard as everyone makes it out to be. If you take your time and pay attention to what your doing, just about anyone can do a nice looking car. Sure with experience , and some skills you can take anything to the next level, but if you dont try to set speed records for body finishing, you can get good results.
The biggest thing to keep in mind is light coats, slow and steady. That and good masking will yield good results 9 times out of 10
