Need some help on my paint job!!!

Post by toy4x4fever on March 17th 2010, 3:30 pm

Well Im new here and have a question on some stuff. I have rolled on 4 coats of interlux brightside paint and I made my own color! It is dark gray. I rolled on one coat let it sit for 24 hours then painted on another coat let it sit for 24 hours and then wet sanded with 600 grit sand paper. But I dident get all the brush marks out of the paint because I kept burning threw the paint. So I rolled on another coat and it came out very nice then wet sanded with 800. Now Im on my 4th coat and im wet sanding with 1000. I plan on doing 5 coats total and then wet sanding with 1200 then 2000. I tryed polishing one small spot on my 4th coat just to see what it might look like. There are still marks in the paint what I belive is stuff under this 4th coat! It is because I dident get all the brush marks out on my other wet sanding? Other question is can I roll interlux bright side right from the can then wet sand the hell out of it and be ok?

I was going to roll right from the can so I wont have any bubbles. I am rolling on paint that is about as thin as milk is that to thick should I thin it out more?

chances are you need a few more thin coats. You can see layers below if you sand through or polish thin enough its translucent.
I never had bubbles because my coats were so thin they couldn't form..
your best bet is using a dry roller very lightly over the top to help pop them - it also smooths and evens the paint

Can't help with the rolling part because I usually spray but as for marks in your paint, what grit did you use for the final sand before your color? The reason I ask is because paint usually won't hide anything rougher than 320. The first 2-4 coats WILL look like crap because it is thin and you do go through it in places. thats the reason for 8-10 coats. . With that being said, you can put on as many coats as you want before sanding but most here say every second coat, altho more time consuming, is way easier than one at the end.
I'm sure some roller people will be along shortly to help you more.
By the way, welcome and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Thanks guys! I used 320 for my prep before painting. I ran out of paint on my 4th coat so I had to order more. Am I getting to many bubbles because of the mineral spirits? Im using oderless if that means anything. and I should be using another roller rather than a brush to get the bubbles out?

When you say dry roller is it a roller with no paint on it?

Think Im putting on to thick of coats. Also I used a foam brush rather than dry rolling over the bubbles. So when my paint gets here im going to thin it out to about 30% and roll on. Do you guys think odorless mineral spirits works well with Interlux brightside or should I get somthing different?

Welcome to Rolled on toy!

Ya, he's talking about a fresh or cleaned foam roller to help get rid of the bubbles.

I found this thread with some great info about mixing not only the paint and mineral spirits but also adding hardner and reducer to help get a better finish and drying faster.
http://rolledon.forummotion.com/bodywork-preparation-f10/rustoleum-advice-t367.htm

Hope this helps you, I know it's going to be a big help to me. Getting more stuff little by little but will be doing this same mixture of paint on my test hood and post up by outcome.

First try thinning the paint a little more with the mineral spirits to reduce the bubbles, also do not shake the paint when mixing, stir it, the shaking creates bubbles. The type of roller you should be using is the dense foam finish roller and have a second one on hand with no paint to roll out any bubbles or roller marks. If you end up with orange peel, it is best to sand it out before applying another coat. I have never used the Brightside, so I don't know how many coats it takes to get full coverage. I have been using Rust-Oleum and find it usually takes 8 coats for full coverage and on some of the lighter colors it will even take a few more coats. I have run into bubble trouble once before and found it to be the brand of mineral spirits I was using, when I switched to a different brand I found that the bubbles went away.

Have you used klean-strip orderless mineral spirits and you thoughts?

Seen a brand K-mart had reduced today, I believe it was E Z orderless mineral spirits what about it?

Just wanted to know because I plain on getting a couple gallons or so to have around and since I'm going to be using it to mix paint too might as well get the M S thats better for paint.

I can't remember the brand name, it was a couple years ago, but I do remember buying it at Wal-Mart and I have never bought mineral spirits from there since.

Ok guys little update! I went out today on my 4th coat still and wet sanded it with 1000 then 1500, then 2000. Used some 3M rubbing compound and then a good polish! I likes how the paint came out but Im still getting like tiger striped in the paint were some places are darker than the others! Color is gray will a little black mixed in with it. Anyone have an idea so should I just stick with the plan on rolling on a few more coats and see what happens?

Well a few years back i did polish it up with some alum polish and a flitz ball and it was bling bling but Im kinda going for the blacked out look with this paint job. I ordered bush wacker fender flairs for the pickup and will be painting thoes black as well! Wait till you see the rear bumper Im putting on this pickup haha. The whole reason I painted this truck is because I had to put a new bed on it, it was involved in a hit and run. So I thought to my self what better time to paint it with the roll on stuff!

To each his own. I prefer the blingy stuff a bit like bumpers and grills and maybe an accent here and there but I have seen some really nice blacked out cars also. Thats whats neat about rolling your own, you can do what YOU want, where you want it.
I'm with robo, You want black, go for it. cheers
