  • RANT Painting Solo-cowl RANT

    Well. I decided to paint it on my own....and give my painting skills another chance. After ordering the aeresol can from and waiting till the weather was on par (below 90% humidity) I decieded to get the cowl out for the new paintjob. I bought it used from KAT6. After sanding it down to give the new paint something to grab, wiping it down with wax/grease remover...I painted away.

    But I felt something wasn't right. The color was going on pretty I decided to paint another coat about 2 min later. I wet sanded these coats....and painted again....feeling the can was getting low.....I used all of it up.........only to wet sand again to the previous coat.

    I was ticked. So now I have to wait for another can to come...and hope it was from the same batch as the one I had.

    So I have a half-painted blue/black satin finish cowl hanging in the garage waiting for 3 more coats of blue.

    I feel like a dumbass. Althought the paint did dry to a nice smmoooootth finish that required almost no wet sanding, I still want to kick my own ass.

    So for those doing may want to buy 2 cans......just to be on the safe side.
    My sig is boring.

    what color primer did you use? If you used gray, you may want to go white, and vice versa.
