This is a double post, sorry but I wanted to get feedback...

I just finished up my 7th coat, everything looked AWSOME until now..... I sanded with 1200, but for some reason the wet sand did not feel good and kept catching everywhere i sanded. This was the 4th time I wet sanded the jeep and I had great results. I used clean water and a little dish soap, cleaned the serfaces before i sanded, changed paper 6 times etc... There are very noticable scratches in my Jeep...all over it. There are not deeep looking and you cant feel them. My question is this, should i wet sand it again tomorrow or just keep painting over them until they are gone and call my paint job done. I was planning on putting on my last coat tomorrow morning and putting the jeep back together, I am really bummed right now.

sounds like the paint wasn't totally dry yet. I had that happen - that was one of my 'ruined' coats. The sanding just didn't feel right, the paper caught all the time, and the paper clogged constantly. That created scratches all over the place..

If you have enough paint on it, it should wet sand out. That close to a final coat you want the surface as close to perfect as you can get it, but f they are that light you might get away with it.

And remember - if you don't like it - its very easy to fix it!

Thanks for the reply. I am going to let it dry today and wet sand it out tomorrow crossing my fingers that there is enough paint to get all the scratches out. I will keep you all updated

if its not real hot there yet you can allow longer cure times, use heat lamps, park in the sun or use hardener.

You could do a coat or two, and let that cure for a few weeks, then sand it out and it would probably be fine.

But I'm really thinking hardener is the way to go with these paint jobs. But you have to use it from the first coat. If you used hardener now, there's a real good chance you would trap volatiles from the previous coats under your last ones.
That would not end well....

Sorry I have not posted for a little while, but I just finished my 9th coat and it is going back together tomorrow. It ended up putting 3 coats back on it after I sanded the scratches out to get full coveage. I have some "uneven spots in the paint, but I am hoping they will buff out. Did any of you have some uneven stops in the paint when you finished? They are little dull compaired to other areas...hard to explain.

One more question, do you think it will be ok to start bolting things back on after 12 hours of 55 degree damp weather...it is sitting in the garage.

I cannot wait to put it back together and roll it outside to get a good look at it, looking at it under the floresent lights all the time will drive you crazy....Here are some photos I snapped tonight, many more will follow tomorrow!

Thanks to everyone for the help Very Happy

Yeah I agree with Falcon

Since the humidity is high the paint is going to need more time to dry, and you've got it looking good so I wouldn't rush and apply bolt scratches and nicks.

And it being black the littlest thing will show up as soon as you roll it out into the direct sunlight.

When I'm detailing and it's raining or getting ready to rain I keep an eye on my humidity gauge and when it gets to high (75% is boarderline for me) I will turn on my window mount AC to pull out the huimidity in my garage so I can keep keeping on and wont have any problems with curing and removing my products.

The Jeep is done, going to buff it in 30 days, but it looks great. I only have a couple outside photos because the weather is crappy. My good friend owns a auto body shop and I stopped by there today because he is going to help me weld a frame peice and he could not believe I painted it with a roller....he called all of his employees out to look at it. He only belieived me after I showed him the photos of me painting it. I will post more photos tomorrow...THANKS to everyone for the help. I will also post more details about painting the Jeep and the bodywork, I'm moving in 12 days and need to get other stuff done.

How long should I wait to wash this thing? It is very dusty from sitting in the driveway baking in the sun.

well, since it basically gets washed when you wet sand, it should be ok as soon as its dried.

I might refrain from any detergent or wash for a bit, but mine sat in the rain and hail for 2 weeks right after it was painted with no effect
