Respray, No Shine

6 posts in this topic

decided to respray the door on car to remove a lot of scratches, follow ing instructions on cans, but cannot get the shine back.

i rubbed down with 1200 wet@dry and sprayed on several coats of paint.

after a week rubbed down with 1200wet@dry and sprayed on laquer.

after a week rubbed down with 1200 wet@dry using plenty of water

polished the door and no shine, and looking very dull.

Try more layers of lacquer, that's what adds the depth to the shine.

Did you use primer?

When I resprayed my bumper I had to resand every single coat I applied before adding another. Arduous but it had to be done!
