      i wonder when people are going to realize that "spray bomb" looks like dog sh!t...
      the mk4 jetta looks nice. nason paint usually doesn't go on so smooth so i'm pretty impressed with the way that looks. doesn't appear to have any real texture to it. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      actually it does have some texture. i thought it was just me not knowing how to set up my gun. i tried everything to get it to come out better. There are a few places that have sanding scratches that showed up. the shine is a bit off in a some areas. it was all done in a single car garage one section at a time. i wanted to sand it down a respray the out side.
      is there a good paint that can go over the nason?

      i think because it's so fresh, your best bet would be to sand it down and spray a sealer/surfacer before hitting a second coat. single stage will always be a bit harder to lay down than a base/clear. your best bet would be to shoot it with a black base and use a flattening agent in the clear.
      there isn't anything you can do about sanding scratches outside of wetsanding them down and repainting them... regardless, it looks good in your photos... maybe the raindrops hide a bit. painting panel by panel may be where you went wrong. even slight variations in temp and humidity could affect the final result.

      That army green jetta is sick. The camo hood and trunk looks exactly like the "digital camo" colorway Odyssey bmx did for some handlebars and forks. I'm a big fan.
      Drop it like it's hott.

      No joke man, the paint is Ace hardware Premium enamel, color= machinery gray. After letting the paint dry for a few days I clay bared the car.
      If your a person who likes to take the time to do things right then you wont be surprised about a good RC paint job.

      in order of most cost effective:
      -stay existing color
      -single stage
      -base/clear
      whether you go flat or not, if you change the color it'll cost the same. the flat is in the clear, not the base. they make flat single stage as well, but from what i've seen it sorta sucks cause you can't sand it out when your done and end up with a lightly textured finish (above example prompted me to do some research).
