95 Eagle Talon TSi, Semi Gloss

Post by 95tsi702 on February 28th 2008, 1:32 pm

I have been using the roller method on my Talon, but i have a problem with either the mixture, roller, or me Laughing

i have done close to 5 coats and its not a smooth looking finish, i can see roller marks in the paint maybe im putting the paint on to thin? from a distance it looks GREAT but when i get up close i see all the roller marks?

i will be posting pics up as soon as i get my camera back from my neighbor bounce

Its not an exact science and what works for one doesn't always work for the other. But I would strongly recommend that you make sure that those roller marks are at least sanded down and flattened every 2 coats.

I have a few of those "roller marks" on my hood and i'm kicking myself for not taking them down sooner, they will show right through the last layers of paint as darker areas( depending on color of paint chosen in the case of my orange I can definetely see a darker line where the roller mark is). I may actually do 2 more coats on the hood of my vette to help hide those and I already have 9 coats of paint down.

If you are getting roller marks like the edge of the roller then you are either putting on too much paint or not rolling it out smooth. If the roller marks are just visible marks where you can see where the roller was, width wise etc. then it could be the paint isn't leveling well and could be from trying to rework the paint too much in that area. It isn't uncommon to see roller marks in the first coats as the paint is thin, but sanding between coats removes the unevenness and the visible marks due to color difference will go away or be less apparent as the paint covers. If you can see the marks as visible defects in the paint you will have to take care of them by sanding to a smooth finish. If the finish is smooth and the marks are just visible due to bleed through of the under coat that should disappear over the next few coats. Gee I hope that all made sense!

How did the spraying go? I'm hoping to get to my project in the next week or so. I've messed around with spraying the paint thinned with acetone, penetrol, and mineral spirits. The paint stayed pretty shiny with a little orange peel and no runs when mixed with acetone alone and sprayed in a fairly cool temp range. I plan on using mineral spirits and/or paint leveler with acetone when the temp gets higher. I'm also using a pretty cheap "airless" sprayer from Harbor Freight I picked up for $70 (I can feel the eyes rolling). Anyway let me know what mixture you used, and what gun, and temp if you remember.
