Now on coat 9 of paint, need to sand again to knock down peel. Still yet to see coverage, will avoid sanding those areas entirely. Will sand with 1,000 grit today and toss another coat of paint on it.

NEED ASSITANCE


Have a total of 9 coats of paint and 2 of primer. Just sanded with 800 grit and still dont have complete coverage especially on one fender. My question is, how many coats after complete coverage? its going to get sanded with 2000 and then buffed so I dont want it to burn through. You guys think another 2 coats will do it?

I stopped counting..

I went by how it looked after wet sanding, and added 4 coats or so after I was happy. I probably should have done 6 after, because I have a few thin spots - nobody will notice them but me, but it would be nice to not have them - even on a winter beater

yup - I did a burn through that way - go very light with the spray, let it dry really good, then just wet sand and buff. Thats assuming you didn't custom mix any colors in
