Ok heres a little back story,

I have a monte carlo that I have been working on for some while. I have had to strip it and repaint it twice because I wasn't happy with the paint.

I have finally gotten it to where it needs to be. Here have been my steps

wash body with soap and water
wet sanding with
600-1000-2000

 

wash body with soap and water
Primer coats
wet sand with
600-1000-2000

 

wash body with soap and water
Three light mist coats with taymia black
wet sand with
2000

 

wash body with soap and water
first wet coat

Tonight I put on the first wet coat and I noticed some hazing/rainbowing in the paint.
I'm kinda freaking out because I don't want to start over again with this body.

I have allowed days of drying time in between each step and have taken my time.
I want this black to be perfect

Any help on this subject would really help me out

Cheers, Mike

I can post pictures if it will help

Sounda like you have fogging from humidity. I would let it cure a few days. Wet sand lightly and put on a few more coats. Are you painting in a humid area?

Sounds like too much sanding, and soap & water. Are you trying for a germ free paint job?

I live in Vancouver BC, It didn't feel humid today?
I will take your advice. I think I will get some finer sand paper to smooth it out.

Yea, with it being a black paint job I was trying to make the prep work and body perfect. I wash with soap and rinse thoroughly.

When i paint i prep the body then wash and let it dry. Anytime i sand the body i rinse it and use a toothbrush to scrub the body seams and crevises. Once i get to the clear coat stages i use a tack cloth specifically for basecoat clear coat finishes. I only wash with dawn dish soap until i actually start the painting process. I live in seattle so i have to deal with paint fogging and humidity as well. Good luck with your paint. Black is touchy even in the 1 to 1 car world.

tack cloth - thats great advice.

This paint job is personal now. The amount of trouble i have had with it im going to battle it until I get it perfect!

I will try your method rather than washing it with soap eveytime. It will also save time!

Blushing, which can happen when painting with any lacquer in a humid environment.  It's not the result of poor or incorrect surface prep, but rather that lacquers can attract moisture from the surrounding air.  I see that you live in Vancouver, which is right on the ocean--sounds like that is the source of the high humidity.

 

Blushing can be polished out though,  or when the air dries out a bit,another coat of color,or clear will chase it away.

im about half way through lightly sanded it and will add another wet coat when the weather gets better.

Good to hear not all hope is lost.

I also found out by accident that if you clear over the blushing it will disappear. I did this with a metallic paint job. Blushing was the word i was looking for earlier. Good luck with your project hope you post pictures when your done.

Wow I took everyone's advice by waiting, wet lightly sanding then shooting another med to heavy coat.
WOW it turned out amazing! the paint is glass smooth. In fact I have never shot such a smooth paint job ever.

Now the only problem is a piece of lint I picked up during the painting process. Any advice for that? I'm nervous about ruining the shine I have created.

Thanks again and as promised before I will post up once the paint has cured a bit.

Cheers, m!ke

You can either wetsand and repaint another coat or. I would use 3200 through 12000 grit sanding pads or paper grits and sand the dust or lint out and polish using polish and wax i like the novus system. Be careful and the shine will come back. Glad your paint job came out nice and our advice helped. Post pictures when done.

Would you suggest just wet sanding the panel that has the defect or the whole thing?

Always sand / polish the entire finish...After sanding, you should have a smooth dull finish, use some Novus or Scratch X to bring the gloss back.
