Painted the rear quarter today. Came up looking pretty good, being acrylic paint I need to give it a buff for the final result.

Paint looks even and I got no runs which was good, its not 100% but I'm happy with it. Started to feel a lot more confident by the last coat of clear.

Next time I think I need to have some more paint coming out of the gun and adjust the spray pattern abit, but for the first try I'm really happy. It was fun trying something new Smile

Is fun painting small panels etc and even more so when get decent finish quite easily.
Would hate take on full proper effort respray at home though .
Is surprising how good these modern guns are for the cost .

Yeh takes time learn the equipment and paint products. I done a few bumpers wing panels and the likes for odd friend and neighbor when had a light car nudge, had some good results now familiar with local supplier products and got my preferred gun settings, spent lot of time spraying old scrap wing and bumper before moved to proper attempts.
Find I epoxy a lot of suspension stuff and brackets etc so not paying for powder coat and downtime of outsourcing it offers good saving .
Spraying wheels is useful too as cheap yet quite decent refurb option .

Lot of it down to paint type and color, spraying straight color such as white in 2pack gives easy results
Black is a bastard, metallic and clear coats can be troublesome although just as small panels it easier get metallic good finish match, trying paints important too, I changed supplier after taking advice from a sprayer and different brand paints especially clear coats can give massive differences in ease of out the gun finish.
Once again just doing a panel or 2 is easier as can spend few hours flatting and polishing them to match finish texture better .
Wheels are good easy fun and seems last pretty good, I done a friends mk3 supra while I had it for engine rebuild. He fancied gold and I had some on shelf same as subaru so got him prep them and I sprayed them in 2K inc plastic caps but masked off cap hidden edges and retaining spring so fit easy and not scraping paint leading to clear coat edge lift etc, stayed proper tidy for well over 2yrs, was expecting heat and brake dust effect it quite quickly.
Think it helped that wheel left out in sun for over month while engine done so paint proper hard when fitted .

So here's the final result, spent a few hours this morning with some 1500 wet and dry making sure I could get the best result out of it. Gave it a cut and polish.

This was last time with spray cans Laughing



And this time Smile



Much happier I spent more time and made a massive difference with wet and dry and more time polishing.
