Yesterday, Sunday and this morning,  I painted the Cross Fire a second time. Followed the posted suggestions and it came out much, much nicer. Tomorrow I paint the black trim, and apply a missing part of the fin. Not sure how I missed that.

Thanks for all the suggestions, most useful was keeping the can moving fast. The hot water tick I remembered from the early 80's when  painting with those aerosol cans full of gas for cheap spray guns. Cheap being the key word. D>K H^^

You're one lucky guy. Connected also.

But, I will say you should try Krylon and wet sanding isn't necessary with Krylon.

You'll still have to use a two part clear to fuel proof.

You can dry sand Krylon, clean, clean, clean, then mask for another color in an hour.

If you put on Rustoleum and your taking most of it off, I'm guessing it didn't work well?

I know all about the hot water trick but never used it. I know of no one who heats paint when they spray it through a gun.

I've sprayed paint my whole life, try the Krylon.

Rusty was the Aerosol, "can" guy. What a nice guy he was.

1. Wet sanding keeps the paper from loading up. 2. It's electric, not IC, thus no fuel proofing. 3. The store didn't have Krylon in the color I wanted. In fact they are out of the red (Sunrise) in Rustoleum. 4. I don't really care all that much and it was an experiment. 5. You give advise I didn't want from you, but you refuse to sell paint masks to me. 6. Go to hell. H^^

You trolled me for years and I'm still trying to help. I told you, I don't remember telling you I wouldn't sell you masks.

Just like I tell everyone, even my trolls, if you need anything just ask.

Everyone reads Threads, so advice travels, a good thing.

Look, It's not my fault I had 30 years of building and finishing experience before I came into SS. Not to mention my background and what I did for a living.

Let it go. Many have.

BTW, Electric or not, you'll still need a clear coat to finish, just for the look.

Will you eventually put up photos? Sharing photos is great!

Good luck with your experiments and your model.
