So I wet-block sanded with 400 about half a dozen times over the past week, then found more pinholes and such and puttied them, then repeat and etc.
Finally today I just said “screw it,” and shot the “sealer” coat.
This is all Duplicolor rattle cans because I am unaccountably afraid of my old-school Devilbiss sprayers and the 2k primer-sealer I bought a couple months ago with this job in mind.
I washed the car and dried it, then waited a while and then tack-ragged it. As you can see, I totally skimped on the tape job, because I’m an idiot who believes compounding out overspray is faster and easier than masking, mainly because it’s a thing we do tomorrow instead of today. I’m like that.
Hood and scuttle. I shot the whole hood but most of it is already painted. Hoping I pulled all the wax out of it with the acetone and sand-blocking routine.
And here it is wet. Two coats in. Gonna wet sand with 600, then peel the tape off and shoot over a couple more coats before clear. Hoping it covers.
