    Well. finally got good weather and was able to clear coat my fender. Have applied 2 triple header wet coats at the moment. Will let it harden for 4/5 days and then compound and polish. Pleased with the results so far. No runs luckily. Start the tank tomorrow.

    No mate, sprayed with full size gun. Single pack acrylic automotive clear coat. Sure it has very fine orange peel, but if you read my post you will understand that it still has to be compounded. Cut back with 1200 wet and dry, then 1500, then 2000. Then cut and polish compound, followed by wax. There will then be no more orange peel and it will have a mirror finish you can see your face in. Have done this many , many times. So what you are seeing is the first stage of many. Cheers buddy.

    Hi mate, all compounded and polished. All artwork is at customers request. Have started tanks. Cheers, Brushit. ( So shiny it`s hard to photograph )
