Ok guys- Just put down two nice coats of the AE. It looks GREAT.. I used a different hardener and added reducer this time. It's safe to say it was the lack of reducer that caused the texture.

I would be completely done, but I accidentally leaned up a bit against the passenger fender while painting the cowl! I plan to wait 24 hours for the paint to cure a bit.. and then I'll sand that little area and touch it up.

Really happy with the finish..

I think everyone missed this little part......

2k high build primers are meant to be sanded after applied..its a primer to fill low spots..2k high build primers are what they say they are.."high build"..which means it does spray on like a texture so it can be sanded smooth and have a high build

You should of used an Epoxy Primer reduced 20% or more to make a sealer and spray smooth before the final coats or use any good sealer primer...

2k High build is for the body work stage..not the final "spray n go"

Thanks for your reply Iron... I did use the 2k High build.. and yes, I sanded (profusely) before I put down my color. I am very happy with the results it gave.. very smooth surface.. high hiding.. etc.

so now you have to be happy with yourself. Don't worry about the goof up with leaning on the new paint .common mistake with first /in your case second timers.I'm glad to here of your success this time around.I f you check your tech sheet for the paint and hardener it will tell you when you are safe to nib sand to remove minor defects from the new paint .Some times you can nib sand a few hours later and shoot re-coat on a goof area then . cant wait for the new pictures .congrats

Hey guys - unfortunately the paint didn't turn out as nice as it looked yesterday. There is a slight orange peel to the finish. It's not NEARLY as bad as the first time, but.. still there. I have decided to go BC/CC. With my lack of expertise .. the single stage will never be to my liking. The BC/CC offers at least some level of forgiveness! I'll be back with pics after I try that route.

You have to scuff it again to spray the CC. Your past your window.

I never seen anyone ask what kind of gun you are using?..size tip for the top coats?...and what compressor are you running and what CFM's does it put out?..do you have a good filtration system?....all this plays a MAJOR part in a nice finish with a gun...if you feel the need to call a real pro..go to the SPI website(Southern Polyurethanes Inc) and get Barry's number off the site..he answers his phone unlike others and WILL help you all he can..and he is considered one of the best gun slingers out there....

He has helped so many amatures on the phone lay a show quality finish on their rods and show cars its uncountable...there is also a GOOD read on his website on how to setup your gun properly to its best and how to set it up for the best spray pattern
