Im wondering if anyone know of any places on the Gold Coast

Some will agree.

guy at the paint shop told me to.
What do you mean by guide coat?
The way i was going to do it was sand then wax and grease remove it.
then prime it sand it prime it again sand it.
wax and grease it again then colour 3 coats and then a coat of clear
then sand it and wax and grease it again
then 3 coats of clear?
according to the paint shop i got all the gear from thats the method i have to use...
if thats wrong then would be great to know.
I dont really want to stuff all my product and time up

The way you described is right, just after you spray your primer its good to spray a guide coat down so that you can tell the surface is 100% flat an there nothing you've missed.
what i do is got a cheap can of black acrylic paint and spray in little spurts all over the panel so its covered with little black dots.
Watch this video
shows a guide coat at 8:36 but worth watching the video
Are you spraying in acrylic or 2pac?

and yes mastering a spray gun is certainly difficult but not impossible acrylic paint is pretty forgiving. This isn't the first thing I've sprayed and stuff that I've done before plenty of mates couldn't tell that it had been sprayed at home.
the other big thing is budget, for me to get my car done professional with the colour I want and everything would cost 3-5k depending on who would do it and that's money I cant justify on just paint.
DIY cost max 1k for pretty much everything included spray guns (not a compressor though) and got the colour I want, and i know that everything done to a pretty high standard
