i am painting some fuel bowsers. one is going to be two-tone golden fleece yellow/blue
will paint yellow first then mask off and paint the blue half.
both yellow and blue are solid acrylic, will I have to put clears over the top or as per my XP (white), just wet sand and polish?
If you are going to buff the job to acheive maximum sheen, the ensure you mask each colour off before buffing. Esp with acrylics, you run the risk of melting one colour into the other whilst buffing.
Its one of the reasons i ask the question of why you are using acrylic. Even tho its probably for indoors, i'd be tempted to do it in 2k clear over base and be done with it.
Pictures are coming.have to find the phone-computer cord.
acrylic v's 2k..I have painted two cars now, the XP (acrylic) and the F100 (satin black 2k) both in the shed. XP was much much better. may have had something to do with the black being satin however..I have also used a bit of Dupont Nason, which I love. In hindsight i probably could have gone with a product like this. and also would have prob. been a similar price or even cheaper
Acrylic is somewhat more forgiving and when i fark it up can fix it a bit easier i think.
also not real confident with clears/doing two colours on same panel etc etc.
and i know 2k is not super safe, however i read a lot of things about product safety etc etc including as part of my study.and have done the research. it appears for the most part for the vast majority of people short term, irregular exposure is pretty fine and shouldnt make me to
