Last coat of Semi-Gloss

Post by GovBrown on February 18th 2011, 1:43 pm

I've read through all the posts made about semi-gloss paint but never found exactly what I was looking for.

What options do I have for rolling on the last coat?

Semi has the tendency to show you're last coat and show different layers. With high gloss, I could just sand and polish and be done but I read that semi has a soap flake type stuff that dulls the shine and isn't supposed to be sanded for the show coat. I have little pieces of grit and my dog's hair in it. I'm sure the dog hair is coming from my jacket though so I could change to a jacket that has been in the closet for the last year.

If its semi gloss its what you see is what you get, at least in my experience. If you have a bad spot you can sand it out and paint just that panel again. Thats what is nice about this way of painting is the ease of repair/fixing.

Thanks, I bought a polishing compound last night and polished a small spot on my hood. It came out with a kinda sheen like attribute. It looked great except I need to go get a throw away suit to keep hair to a minimum.
