That sure is looking beautiful Daniel. Are you using that top secret wet look hardener, mixed
into the paint? Judging by the starlight twinkles in the pics, you must be. I'm flattered, that my
progress on the Elf has inspired you, but I want to say, that without your help and input, I
wouldn't be nearly as far as I am with my project. What'd we rack up, about a hundred pm's
figuring that drive train out?
Good to see you making this much progress, and looking forward to seeing the next update.
Oh, BTW, I screwed up the paint on the Elf hood, 2 days ago. (last piece) I've got a nice big run on the
But of course...."wet look hardener"! You know, I was thinking of all those PM's and thought they would make a great thread!!
When you get those runs...quickly grab some masking tape & lay a piece over the run, just "lay it" on the run, then pull it off. Do as many times as it takes to get all the excess off. Many times if you do real good at pulling the excess, you can simply spray more paint over it & it will all level out. If that's not the case, wait a little while, till the paint just gets past the sticky stage, then wet sand with 220, then 360. You have to sand lightly with little pressure, but the uncured paint will sand. Soon as you get it smooth again, blow dry the area & re-shoot it. I made a fender long run on my 1st car paint job many years ago. Called the local "show quality" painter, and he told me what to do right then. It worked!
