i would say the same but having read a few articles they say you should rub down the surface so its dull before applying laquer but was wondering if anyone had done this themselveshi peeps, does anyone know (before i f**k it up) once the panels have been sprayed should they be rubbed down to a dull matt before the laquer is applied any help appreciated cheers
19 f00kin' coats on a mini? f*ck me!!!i am not totally sure but a guy who used to customise cars used to 1200 wet and dry between each layer of paint, i dont think he did it just before laquer though. he just made sure the last coat was perfect..probably how he ended up with 19 coats on a mini once... by hell did that thing shine!!
seriously it was like a mirror...it was in BRG and was really sweet.19 f00kin' coats on a mini? f*ck me!!!
nice one guys am in process of final coats now so will be sanding and laquering soon will post pics when doneseriously it was like a mirror...it was in BRG and was really sweet.
it also had a union jack on the roof
finally , although this has nothing to do with paint, it had a 2l cavalier sri engine in it.. he got through a lot of tyres.
he used to specialise in minis only, spraying, custom, and engine work... he once bought a mini pick up shell for about 200 notes and by the time he had finished he sold the finished motor for 4k.. surprisingly that was also in BRG.
yeah thats true... by the time you have finished the bottle the spray job looks fantastic anyway (beer goggled your bike!!).scotch is the best stuff
