    Question Need some painting advise

    Hello!

    I've used wet n' dry on the spoiler and have applied some special plastic primer. Do I need to use normal primer as well as this plastic primer?

    So far I have:

    Lightly applied wet n' dry
    Applied 2x coats of plastic primer

    What next?

    Thanks

    give it another coat of primer. then you can give it a quick coat of grey primer, then give it overnight to cure. thenwet and dry again 800 grit say, then paint leave it 15 mins 1500 wet and dry, then another coat, 15 mins do the same, another coat of paint, leave for an hour or so.

    then 1500 wet and dry if its a solid colour, if its metalic then you dont need to do this, thn laquer it wait 15 mins 1500, laquer, 15 mins then again. then you should wait 5-7 days before polishing or waxing as the paint needs to "breathe" to cure propperly.

    well this is how i usually paint. others will say differnt stuff

    It is indeed, finally getting round to it. I've been a bit slack. Should have it finished by tomorrow!
