Blitz Black Fix?

First of all this is my first post. I did a search on Blitz Black and found a lot of info, but not an answer to my question. I have a 30 Roadster. Just did 3 coats of blitz black. I need to redo the trunk area due to me not prepping it right. Does any body know if I should wet or dry sand and with what grit. I just have some surface flaws to touch up to do a fresh coat. Any help is really appreciated. Oh, You guys are awesome on this forum. Trainor

Somebody must have some insight to my repair question. Should I just sand down the area to repaint and then just feather the blitz black on to make it blend in. Also how much do i sand, Just until its smooth? Thanks, Trainor

You need to sand it enough to get some tooth to adhere another coat..also to blend out any imperfections..Some water base wax and grease cleaner to pick up and remaining dust and you are good to go..

I'm not familiar with Blitz Black...is it an Acrylic Enamel? Are you planning on polishing your blend?

Mechanical adhesion is important and it's the tooth mark of sanding that assist mechanical adhesion. When I do a blend, I like to prep my blend area with either 800 wet or 1,000 wet, sand about 12 to 15 inches around your repair area and sand it smooth, remove all orange peel, apply my color, let it cure (check your tech sheets) sand the blend area with 1,000 go to 1,500, 2,000 then finish in 2,500 and polish. The blend should be invisible.

Hope this helps

Ray

This is a primer that is the only thing going on. It wont be followed by paint. I painted it yesterday. 3 Coats. I just want to sand it down to get out the imperfections and re-spray it. Would wet sanding with 220 be OK or something finer. I'm not going to buff or polish it , its just gonna stay a satin primer look. Thanks Again, Trainor

I'd go a little finer if your not going to apply paint...something like a 400 or 600 wet. You do realize that most primers do chalk out after being exposed to sunlight and the elements.

They say that JD Blitz Black holds up tp the elements fine with no fading. My car is in a garage and not in the sun. Thanks, I'll go with the wet sanding.

I don't think they make a primer version of JD Blitz Black? It's an acrylic enamel paint.

BlitzBlack - The real "HotRod Black."

I'm thinking about painting my truck with it as well.

Haven't used it in a while. But the JD Blitz black was a modified alkyd enamel.

Did you use hardener?
