BUGS! and trash from trees...

Post by ShadyOne13 on April 25th 2011, 12:40 pm

I have a question. I recently sprayed my VW and it orange peeled like crazy. So I sanded it all out and figured I would just roll a few coats over that base coat. Well I have no garage and I am getting tons of bugs afterlaying a coat down...Is it goinna be an issue later on? I figure I am goinna have to wet sand every coat due to the trash. But My concern is if it will come out ok in the end.

Because you are painting out doors and that enamel is such a slow drying paint you are at the mercy of bugs and trash using your car as a landing pad. When I paint I always have a pair of tweezers and a small ice pick handy to remove bugs and trash as soon as they land. Usually they will come out when you wet sand as long as they don't settle too deep into the paint. Another tip is if you can paint at the crack of dawn instead of at night there are far less bugs flying around, at least where I live anyways.
Good Luck.

dunno if its the color being so bright or what but this thing is like one of those fly sticky traps when its wet, I mean hundreds of bugs... But to my surprise they seem to wet sand out very well. So I guess Ill just keep on with it.
