UH OH....What did I wrong?

Post by dsrt4 on November 29th 2009, 8:14 pm

Ok to I have this old metal Jeep Hardtop that I had sandblasted and decided to paint with rustoleum.

I Decided to spray it since I have sprayed auto paint a few times on jeeps and buggies..

Anyhow after seeing a bunch of videos on you tube and reading up over at the huge paint thread on the dodge forum I decided to spray at a 50/50 acetone mix I used a old Bink's gun I have to spray it.

I sprayed a first coat over the sanded primer and let it sit for about 1/2hour and then re-shot it again I waited maybe 25 minutes longer and then shot it again.

This was at about 65 deg and it has sat in that temp for over a week and I can still make a imprint in the paint with my thumbnail...

This stuff was THIN THIN THIN with the acetone 50/50 mix. I thought this stuff would have dried hard as nails..

What did I do wrong here?

I don't think the acetone is avaporating. I would of mixed the paint with enamel reducer 50/50 then added enamel hardener. See the attached post by MR2MIACH. He used this method (rolled, not sprayed) and had great results. Paint dryed rock hard and rubbed like real auto paint.
