Got the first base coat on, solid red. Do I need to rub back in between each base coat and each clear coat?

Sorry have to laugh , isnt this a question you should have asked before attempting a job like this.

perhaps.

Just after some clarification and opinions, as I've read both. That rub between each coat and another get all the colour coats on then rub back before putting on clear and get all the clear coats on before rubbing that back.

Just to clarify, are you using plain acrylic or a clear over base finish?
You should always rub back between coats. Just a wet rub with some 1000 wet/dry will do, unless you have runs etc to get rid of.:)
Personaly on a 4x4 I would not use clear over base, a bugger to spot repair.
With acrylic you can just keep spraying light coats (with a rub in between) to build depth and finish with a cut and polish. Great finish for a 4x4 that will see some bush use as light scratches will polish out.
You can finish acrylic with a clear coat but unless you are after a show car finish, don't bother.
Hope that helps and good luck.

All this is true- but i do :confused:cosmetic touch ups:confused: for a job and the laws that govern us are different.

By saying WTF you have commented!!
You are obviously NOT a professional spray painter. Dont try passing yourself off as knowing the trade and what is right and wrong!
We all should only give out advice, not TELL other people they are wrong.
All advice should be given with the IMHO note.

Now I will say WTF and leave others to decide what to think of your posts.

Have a real nice day....and Craka learn by your mistakes..don't let others make them for you.
Good luck with your respray and let us all know how it turns out.

I agree totally, but the advice should also be correct and not just a guess from someone who is obviously inexperienced or thinks they know.

Why let someone make a mistake to learn from if the advice and knowledge is valid and would provent it from the start.

And Just to set the record straight for Mick.

You are obviously NOT a professional spray painter. Dont try passing yourself off as knowing the trade and what is right and wrong!

23yrs working in the smash repair industry.

12mths doing cosmetic repairs- Mobile Spraypainter (which you must be fully lisenced witha trade ticket)

Fully licenced and and trade ticketed spraypainter for the last 20yrs.

I think that may make me a proffesional in the feild dont you??

Or am i just kidding myself and all the employers i have worked for over the last near 25yrs??

So anyway what where your creds Oracle/ Mick just to set the record straight on your advice??

This comment was in regard to laws relating to spraying 2K if you had have dragged the rest of the thread with it ,it would have explained the whole senario not just the comment that you chose to make a big deal of.

Cheers Damo
