Thanks for posting that information and you are right!!!

There are no short cuts in prep and there is a learning curve with using a Turbine 3 stage system and also with the waterborne paints but I also think that sooner or later this is going to be the way painting will be done in the future.

I have read many posts by others who are using waterborne paint and I have met a few guys in person who are shooting waterborne paint and all of them had interesting comments on the pros and cons of making the transition from solvent based to water base paint.

One guy I met made the change because the shop he works in only works on high end cars like Ferraris and cars like that and he told me that all of those cars are shoot with waterborne paint right from the factory.

He told me the metallic s lay down flatter with waterborne then with solvent bases paint.

He also said sometimes they wait day's in between using the solvent based clear coat.

Thanks again Milo. Jimbo
