    Catastrophic fail today,...

    Something happened with the paint used DuPont Nason paint and it dried so fast it didn't adhere and went on so dry it made the primer look good, called DuPont and got some reccomend actions of additives and new mix ratios,...

    So now it gets sanded again and we will sample the new formula on the tail gate to see if it works,...

    Bummer

    Now that sucks. Sanding is no fun and to have to do it twice.

    Got a little orange peel?
    Meh... most paint (from what I know) will do that.... I hear its nearly impossible to get a mirror finish right out of the gun.
    You probably know more than me, but some light wet sanding or a light cutting compound like Meguires Ultimate Compound would do wonders.

    I hear this stuff is amazing.
