Another Saturday and a little more progress. I used Raptor liner to do the bottom of the car, tail panel, and front valance.

Looking good. Don't forget the 1/4" pinstrip above the blackout. It really makes a difference.

Ive been fighting this thing because im stubborn and i like things customized a bit. Ive been fitting a 71 bumper with an angle iron bracket....Really should of used the stock brackets and just cut them down but its slowly getting where it needs to be. I have to adjust my doors, get the trunk and hood painted but the paint is on the way for a Satin black on them..... Ive also ended up having to cut off the rear valance due to previous hack work but i am going to bedline the bumpers to match the lower part of the car.

Hopefully i make some progress soon

Man you work fast!

Pitty you have to redo, may be you could try to paint with the parts flat, as on the car (looks like you have the space). With bits lower harding component if the temp is higher than 20C/68F. This not only prevents runs, but also insure the surface will stretch more as it hardens slower, giving a nicer finish. On side, you are forced to use either more air pressure and less paint possibly giving a haze to have thin layer or to spray more faster and get orange peel. Not to mention its harder to get same amount of paint on the surface looking down, which you discover only when done!
Downside is that you need first paint the under side first and have it hard enough to do the other side.

Good luck with the sanding! Got tons to do ahead of me and I hate it already! Smile

I took a 4 day weekend just to accomplish this.

It really was just an issue with me not adjusting my gun properly. I actually put it like this for 2 reasons. 1 because on big objects i tend to get striping when i have it flat. Plus like you mentioned. I can hit both sides.  Funny part is the bottom looks halfway decent. My runs are all on the top half of the hood lol

Hopefully my wet sand will go good tomorrow and i can respray all in one day. Luckily with using hardner this stuff drives quick but its 91F here today. So its HOT!!!

well its mostly sanded down but was starting to clump on the paper. So i let it sit and will hit it with some finer grit before respray. Hopefully i can spray again this weekend
