Thanks Tom.  At least the Green parts will be easier.  I just have to feather the primer and throw the color on.  As long as I have the color in the gun, I'll fix some dings and scratches

Sherman I am not. 

But I must say, after working ion the body shop part time,  I learned allot about technique with a gun.  Orange peel is non existent.  No Drips, No Runs and I didn't leave my palm print in the dust.  

I just have to deal with the dust on the surface.  Which hit right after the second coat.  I also slowed it down a tad so it would flow longer.  Big mistake when you paint in a tent.  LOL

I just realized

I spent 2 hours running the stainless through the buffer today and you can't see I took 40 years off of all the trim.

I didn't go nuts, I just got rid of all the little scratches.

Seeing it in real life, the trim has an impact.  It glitters if you look close.

Stainless still oxidizes...and minerals from tap water, and weather leave lots of residue on them.  I went back and looked at the pics...you can sure see the gleam.

Ahhhhhh   I screwed up the clear.  The lower grade clear flows out better.  I have a middle grade solids clear.  I couldn't get it to lay down right.

Gonna have to watch the guy I work for for the gun technique.  He showed me the strokes for the base coat, which I did flawlessly.  I WANT AN AZBLACK FINISH!  (Without the paw print LOL)




This door got mangled with a ladder.  I can't find the repair on it or the trunk.  Getting better in my old age.

Chris

Look at the trunk lid.  What the hell did I do wrong?  I can sand it out, but the clear didn't even flow out.  It's like it was too thick or something.

This is after I did some wet sanding and polishing.  Have allot more to do.  This side got just the rear quarter  done above the molding.  That spot by the marker light is an unfinished repair.  I have several spot repairs to do.  But with a finish like that coming out, there is no way.

Can't really see much in the pictures. What kind of materials are you using?  Did you follow manufactures mixing ratio and use correct temperature range reducer and hardener?

Dupont   7775 Clear  Followed instructions  2 to 1

Look across the deck.  It's not orange peel, it's like it didn't flow.  Now you know I do better than that.  Look at the roof.  If anything, the temp was below what it should have been

The good news is I can save it.  If I break my arms.  To save time, I'll use some 600 chassed with 1000

So you're working part time in a body shop? Great way to learn the pro techniques, I've considered it myself, if there was a convenient one nearby.
