Halloween OR San Francisco Giants Orange seems appropriate enough this week
Now to find some body lines to blend to since the rest of the paint is in spanking new.
The good news is the waterborne bases are availabe in the formula already..

Gonna blend up to the close line on both sides


Posting projects gets them done..

yep, it has been on a back lot..they can't put it on the sales floor....yet .. I like your sig link, works for me too

Heres a link to an old thread with solvent type faster bases and non compliant clear from days gone by that shows some of what this one is in for.

Wait err, there's a fly in my paint..

If you like tight fixes your in the right place.

First to set some healthy boundaries.

The masking tape makes it around the crown line to keep repairs within the "shoulder" remember we need that bodyline to hide the blend..

not to ask primer to fill, a 2 part glazing compound levels the field of play..

After bodywork, the tape is removed and any stray putty flecks off the unsanded paint with a fingernail edge. Then retape and cover everything except where it's ok for primer to be.

Heres the piece now in primer with a guide coat after sitting for 18 hours.

The next prep step is to sand the hard primer line near where the tape was as well as the rest of the area to be paint/blended but first to put another piece of tape this time allowing just past the primer edge to show to protect that bodyline.

Here is the piece with the primer sand protection tape removed.
To prep the blend corner it is cleaned with windex on a 3M ultra fine scuff pad followed with a few light brushes with 1000 grit dry to give it just enough tooth for the clear.
Finally 3M door aperture tape is placed along the crown of the body line...

The base color is "dusted" on shooting down across the foam tape at an angle as not to flood into the crevice created by the rounded foam tape. Not to rush especially with waterborne, give it 20 minutes between light coats until it's covered.

When it is clear time cast a light drop coat wait one minute and then slam a single wet coat straight on towards the foam tape so it will swirl in there complete.

For the front fender. A bit of heat, then pressure , and cold water and the plastic crest "fits" better.
