First time painting (started out as a white Vengeance c70)- not too bad. Not professional but I'm pleased with how it turned out.



Edit: Uploaded from my iPhone, not sure why the pictures uploaded sideways. I'll have to post new shots after work.

Can anyone recommend a paint that will match the finish on Apple Macs?
post #127 of 133
Sorry but what does applying a paint "wet" mean? Does that mean applying a coat and then applying another before waiting to dry at a different angle or something? Sorry for the confusion.

Thats correct. After the first tack coat spray a medium coat then immediately spray another coat 90 degrees from the previous. This will allow even paint coverage and help maintain an even gloss without overlaps showing.

Tact coat? I don't remember reading that terminology. Does that refer to the sand-primer coat? Also does medium refer to how heavy you put it on?

Tack coat is a thin layer-first coat-


Kind of hard to describe a medium coat....you want it wet enough that the overlapping pass melts into the previous pass but no more or it could run. You may want to setup a practice parts to get the feel.

Not sure what happened to the video I will look into fixing it and that should help seeing it done.
