Mythical Mod of Yore
OK...as many of you know, my woman wrecked my girl and I have decided to give painting her a whirl...so far I'm truly amazed at the results I've gotten from a rattle can. But I have a few questions for the artists out there who really know what they're dong...
- along some of the edges of the plastic (most noticably on the front fender) when I wet sanded the clearcoat with 2000 grit paper the paint gave way to the previous color. The spots are very small. Is it likely that I just didn't prime/paint enough in those areas? Is there a secret to doing edges? Now that I have cleared it what's the best way to cover over the bare areas?
- I'm assuming that the more coats of clear that you lay down the deeper the final finish. On one piece that I've cleared, sanded, polished and waxed I'd like the shine to be a little deeper. Can I just strip off the wax and lay down more clear or would I have to sand down to the base coat (or deeper) first?
- I know that a lot of clear coats discolor in the presence of fuel and other chemicals...and I'm sure that the stuff I'm using off the shelf isn't the best in the world. Colorite has a multi-stage clear available in an aerosol that they claim is the shit for using where fuel will be present. I'm considering getting this if and when I paint the fuel tank. Any comments on the quality?
