Yeah, that's some impressively smooth paint! I'd think you were color sanding these if I didn't see the pic with masking still in place. What's the trick?

Just read the directions on the label of the rattle can and a good wrist motion
Also buy a super gun of your choice and spend time with it...you will get there !
Almost no wet color sanding, one light pass w/ 2000 grit to give it the "classic car look".


Thanks,

Alvaro

Paint has gone to the roof, a quart of acrylic enamel is in the $40 range visavi $80 to 90 to 110 for the
urethane and if you need a professional color match other than mine the quart will set you back an additional $40 (without a formulation).
The Restoration Shop enamel lays very flat provided the primer is properly applied and treated.

Alvaro, what do you recommend for a fuse paint job. Last winter I stripped and repainted my Ava fuse with an automotive enamel via a rattle can. It looks decent but is not sticking as well as I'd like.

Good deal on the repairs. I shoot PPG and Sherwin Williams urethane with really good results. The SW really lays down when you shoot it. But I have been thinking of switching to acrylic enamel because of the cost and being a little less toxic to shoot.

PM me about where you are getting your paint. Tri City did a lousy job paint matching when I went there, but the SW in escondido did well with matching urethane. I'd be interested in trying someone else because I have some RAL numbers that nobody can match because the european colors have lead in them.

color match


Aaron - TCP has done very accurate work for me,
in addition they always are very cordial at the counter.
Perhaps you are not getting the results you are after due
to the primer ?
Presently I am experimenting with tinting some of my color
applications in an effort to save a bit of paint...
it is not "rocket science" !
