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.
