Re: Paint Codes

Just a heat gun or hairdrier to dry the lacquer & prevent it absorbing moisture & 'blooming'.

Also, for fading-in (or blending in), with existing paint hold a sheet of A4 between the aerosol & the car body, then you can get a phasing in of one finish with the other. This avoids any steps you would get with masking tape.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
