Also in regard to spraying your basecoat. You should not spray your base to wet. 3 medium coats of base is what that ppg needs imo. Better to go with 3 proper coats of base than trying to get proper coverage laying on 2 heavier coats.

Your right LSs10...I tell people to spray base medium wet, never wet. Medium wet to me means that the base is wet enough so that if there are any metallic's, they have a chance to lay down properly and wet to the point that when the solvents evaporate from the base coat your left with a nice even, flat finish to lay clear over top. If it's sprayed dry, the clear will look as though it has dirt or texture in it, if it's to wet, it could have peel in it that will transfer to peel when it's cleared. Also if base is sprayed to wet, the surface will dry and trap solvents underneath...when you clear it, the base will open up , release the trapped solvents and when the clear cures, you have a real good chance of the clear peeling off in sheets.

Sometimes I am reading old threads to get info and wonder if a project ever got finished, or if the problem got solved, so I thought I would throw an update pic of the car on here. Thanks again for all the great advice on this forum. The spi products worked very well for me.





i'll try to get another pic on here when the car is back together.
