How do you make pe dzus sit flush?

Recommended Posts

How about adding the fasteners before paint and then clean them off with thinner after paint. It would be a tricky thing but it might give you the look you're wanting.

Pretty much the same way to do molded scripts: BMF prime, clean, paint clean and clear. I found ISO and Q-tips works pretty well on all types of fresh paint without messing up the finish around.

Dzus fasteners are often painted over once they're installed. This would imply that a slight countersink into the body surface and installation before applying the color coat but after the primer might get you where you want to be. I recently installed p/e Dzus fasteners from Model Car Garage directly over the painted surface using clear enamel as the adhesive. They were VERY thin so I didn't consider the raised surface a big problem - but to be strictly accurate they should be countersunk.
