I am gunna get back to sanding other parts of the case, the inside needs sanding and now that I think of it I need to sand the case doors as well.

Can't wait for tomorrow when I get all my paint
Well, sanding on the first coat of color is primarily to get dirt and trash out before the additional layers of paint 'pile' up on them. Chances are you'll sand down to the primer once or twice here anyway, no biggie.

Once you have a few layers of color, and you still want to sand it, just use very light pressure. Sanding at this stage is not like sanding primer. You're not taking paint off to even it, more or less just nicking down some of the trash and high spots to make it more even.

Edit: Other thought. Very important! More layers of thin coats is MUCH better than a few layers of thick, heavy coats.

Light passes on the coats. You don't want to get all the color even on the first pass, build it up. ALSO, push down the can trigger before you're actually aiming at the panel. Like extend your passes around 6" from the piece on both sides. This way when your can is actually on the piece it's already spraying. If you aim at the panel and then spray it tends to leave a thick spot right there.

ah ok, well luckily I do have 1,000 grit sand paper. In the past I have tried finding a store that carried anything higher but I have never had any luck. 1,000 should be fine I think. To my understanding you almost have to sand the final coat of paint when using paint with flake in it, I guess to get the uneven-nes of the flake down.. Well I guess we will all see how this goes



Oh I also need to figure out if I should do two colors on the outside or not... What does everyone think??

Auto parts stores (autozone, o'reillys etc)usually have higher than 1000grit. Look in the body repair section.

So repo_man, single color on the outside or two ?

I vote for one. i think two would break up the flow of the body filler. All the seams and stuff just have a great flow to them, IMO.

Nope it wasn't. Just got it set up.

As far as teh title, I don't know. I had that same problem with my Phoenix log. Ended up having to have a mod do it. PM Prosser or PJ, their the new mod's for the Mod section. (along with me and radodrill being editors)
