Painting your car in 2pak paint

Recommended Posts

less hardner or more thinners. you have to be careful either way when painting though.

 

U can buy reducer its like thinners but slows down the drying prosess. only use on clear coat and watch out for runs

 

Dont mix up ur ratios , Nice job by the way

Hey man I just found your topic and im halfway thru painting my car but i have a question when doing the clear coat its really ruf with little pin holes everywhere what do i have to do to fix it im guna try get some fine sandpaper an sand it back slightly then do another coat but not sure if this will fix it any info would be great

 

Sounds like u got "pox" witch is solvent poping let the coats dry a bit between coats, or are you running a water trap on your compressor?

might be water

is it illegal to spray acrylic outdoors? is acrylic basically the same principal as 2pk. 3 base coats and same as clear sand then cut and polish with a buff?

Nice mate.

Will be doing this myself soon and just wondering about the 180sx rear quarter black windows and the procedure to either remove them or paint around them?

 

 

Cheers
