Paint problems

I just got a car back from paint and the rear bumper is beyond rough. The front bumper is fine. The car is dark brown I'll try and post a few pic's but I don't know what you will be able to see. The rear deck lid has tiny pin sized holes that appear to be in the base coat-I can't feel them with my fingers. There is some dirt protruding through the clear coat (bc,cc) that are easily felt . Think these can be sanded out or am I looking at a repaint?

Is this something that you painted? If not, I'd definately take it back and have it redone.

Cannot tell what is going on with the bumper, but it definately looks rough in the photo. The decklid looks to me like it has "Solvant Pop". IF tere is enough clear on there, you might be able to sand that out, but that is IFFY. It could leave the clear very thin in the process.

I wish I had painted it! I don't have a place to paint at this time so I had someone else paint it. He claims to have primed the bumper 3 times (with 3 coats each time), sanded the primer off and repainted with the same results. The problem with this entire thing is that this car is to be my nephews first ride. I have some time - He can't get his learners until January - so there is time to have it fixed. I trusted the painter to do a good job - I've seen some of his other work, and this ain't it! I think you are right about sending it back.

Gold is a tough colour to get to cover. The problem with the two different colours is that there are not enough coats of paint on the car for the colour to be the same everywhere.

I ran into the same trouble painting my camaro. I used flex primer (black) on the bumper and regular grey primer on the rest of the car. It took two extra coats of paint to cover the different coloured primers and get the colour to match. See my journal for pics of the process. There is a couple of pics and a description of the problem you have here with the colour match. Pages 6 and 7

I would not advise colorsanding. Maybe let him (the painter) try that. But, It looks like some pretty big blemishes. I'm afraid it will probably have to be repainted. By the time you sand those out the clears integrity will be compromised (too thin), if not burned.

Good Luck! That's a lucky nephew.
