yup!



Hell, I laughed one night - my painter ran out of clear, had a can of that at the house. So, he used it on a set of tails. He asked me if I could tell. I couldn't. Now - he cut and buffed the tails - but they looked IDENTICAL to the paint gun clear. Funny shit? He said it was a little harder to buff. So, David - watch out - its a HARD clear. But, I never buffed it on the lights I did.

not much orange peel here - and we'll just say I'm not that good of a painter.

Got the good clear in today!!! Everything is done on the parts except for clear...what a hell of a project but it was just a lesson I needed to learn and it will be well worth it in the end.

Well guys, it was coming along so well and now I have another speedbump...I'm embarrassed by having another problem, but I'm not even sure what caused it.

All of these pieces were painted with the same products from start to finish and all of them (including the VR lid and two-piece badge) were cleared at the same time and only one piece has a major flaw.

Here are the good dash pieces:


They really look good for not having been buffed and polished at all.

However, the main center stack piece that everyone will see the second they get in looks terrible:







There is one large spot and a couple small ones where the clear wrinkled for some reason. I didn't spray this one any differently than the other pieces. I went light on the first couple of coats and heavier on the last and waited the same amount of time each time.

I don't think it can be fixed without starting over AGAIN. The thing that really sucks is that I'm out of the good 2k clear, so I'm very irritated right now. I'll try to very lightly wetsand that area and buff, but I'm almost positive it can't be fixed.

I'm doing that one piece over again....again, lol.

I have already rescuffed and resprayed the black sections. Today I'll pick up some more paint and some clear and spray the gray when I get home...give it a couple days in the house to really cure, and then spray the clear.
