Do you have enough left to redo the whole car silver?

I did think it was time for solid colour... Gloss black, purple or something!

I do have enough silver to do the car.........


BUT I've had another chat with the painter at work and he told me:
(same as Rich and Steve) it needs sealing/bar-coat etc....
AND I'm using the wrong thinners in the primer! If I'm using standard thinners, I may as well be using gun wash!!! Shocked
I can also chuck the whole lot on in one day, aslong as it's air dry! Very Happy

...Bar-coat's turned up now, and I picked up some premium thinners. So one last try! Wink Very Happy

Well, I was using cheap standard thinners. And that stuff can also be used as gun wash really well(because it's full of acid and shit etc.).
You don't wanna put nice paint over the top of something that's used to remove paint from inside the gun!!!! Idea Rolling Eyes
He said that stuff is only good as gun wash!
I've painted a dozen cars, always used standard thinners and never had a problem! But for the sake of £4/5 a gallon, I won't use it again! afro

Luckily its not too bad, but easily noticeable when you get up close. It was a real arse cause I paid someone a hefty amount to spray her and then that happend.
But I think she still looks great!

No they didnt, he offerd to and the found out he had throat cancer and had to have a trachesiostomy (or however you spell it) and had to give up spraying so I thought it best not to bother him with it!

It doesnt notice untill you look up close.
