    I once told about this to my friend's father who is a respray professional like you. he laughed at it when I said a really flat finish can be achieved by sanding between the coats of clear. I felt like learning a hard lesson in car spraying that day. but a lot of industry does it, woodworkers especially. I guess European respray techniques are more orange-peely as you said?

    U are good as hell man that body work on that hood is 100% perfect and as mentioned earlier black is the hardest paint to spray because any little waves or imperfections will show immediately with a mirror finish like that i been painting cars for 3 years and I'm pretty good too i also paint custom designer furniture

    With a high amount of clear coat, is there not a risk of the clear coat changing colour?

    I have a question, i recently repainted a red tractor. with OEM IH red spray paint cans. it was glossy when i just restored it, but after a year, to this point, everything is faded a little bit, or just no reflection. I have tried auto motive clear coat paint and it glossed the sheet metal up pretty well ,but now after 3 weeks, there isn't really a mirror finish, "its outside a lot".. my question is, how do i get the full glossy mirror reflection like it was when it was brand new in 1976? or like a brand new car is glossy, and it can sit out side for years, and still have its reflection, my question is, is how do i get it to gloss and reflect like the manufacture for years without fading?

    does this give you a better result then just a wet sand and buff out? I would imagine it would cut down on the detail time by bit since there would be much less orange peel to try and cut down if any

    Hi gunman, just wanted to know if I was thought right or not and don't get me wrong I'm no spray painter but have done some cars before for customers and they have been very happy with out come. But anyway for my curious mind I notices When You paint you spray with an open gun or trigger but when I was shown I was told to feather my trigger. I am not sure if these are right saying or not but was just curious to why and is it right or not.

  • JoAspirin

    How long do you wait until flow coat? Can you like shoot the the panel, leave it overnight and then flow coat it or should you wait +- a week as if you were about to buff? (No forced curing involved and we are talking about Montreal/Canadian weather here)

    Gunman, I have a car whereby the clear coat has no shine, can I rub that back with 600 grit and flow coat it, or what is the best method to get back the factory shine. The car is 16 years old.

    Is a mirror finish possible with water based paint? When I spray on wood (mostly over sanded paint already sprayed on the wood) when it is wet it will look very textured but it does flatten out as it dries, but not perfect like this. Is it simply not achievable?

    I'm flow coating my roof and doors on my black car this week using a devillbiss gti pro lite and glasurit 255 clear with medium hardener… Question, obviously you can whack clear on a flat horizontal panel, but how do you get the peel sitting dead flat without any sag/runs/orange peel on a vertical surface like doors?

    real nice paint job. I subscribed because you have a lot of great information about painting. I don't have a professional gun or paint but I use rattle cans on a lot of stuff and following your tips works really well for a rattle can and makes rattle cans give as good of a paint job as it possibly can given its limitations.

    Good video.

    is a mechanical bond as good as a chemical bond? if you do this you are depending on a mechanical bond to hold the final clear coats. do chances of peeling down the road increase? i always try to utilize a chemical bond on my paint jobs.
