Man, im WAY too focused on stuff...i didnt even make dinner
so 14 hours without food.
anyways, i'm done. im SO glad i decided to do this as i was getting sick of how crappy the flares looked like. Going to peel off the masking tape slowly tomorrow. with 3 coats of rustolium, and 3 coats of clear the flare and the tape have "fused". right now the paint is too sticky to try. dry to the touch, but not cured. so if anything tomorrow i just need to use a razor and cut along the tape line carefully. hope i dont....never really painted anything to this extent involving taping something off.
so here it is all fully taped up. this metallic gets everywhere so i dont want any overspray or floating particals... right now i look like i came from a strip club, i am freaking covered in metallic glitter
the plastic worked out great! buddy said it was overkill, but i think professional is a more accurate description.
well, the masking tape looks like shit
I BRING TO YOU! shitty cell pics! this was the 3rd night black metallic coat.
so, i did 3 coats of rustolium night black metallic, 1 light, and 2 semi heavy. waited approx 10 minutes between coats.
clear i did 2 light coats and 1 heavy coat. i can always sand and buff these to a mirror shine, but honestly there isnt any orange peel, but rather a texture to the clear. it matches the stock as i dont want the flares to look better than the truck
it has that right gloss finish to it.
durability wise i think it should withstand weather/sun pretty good. i did chipride-slow's upper door since the clear was peeling. it was a temp fix, at least it prevented it from looking like ass. his blazer isnt garage kept and has lasted a year and still looks like this.
