    next time i think i'll try giving the base coat a little longer to dry (not more than 24 hrs tho), and using a thicker lacquer as a clear. i heard that rubbing a piece of paper over the base coat may help to smooth out a little of the imperfections before the clear goes on will help too. i'll post some more pics after my replacement housing comes and i can play with my OEM a little more.

    nice mondouxd and brooke... im redoing mine since i rushed it friday...on layer 3 and waiting for it to dry to apply clear coat in an hour or so...how long might the clear take to dry? when wet sanding, do i literally wet the sand paper i have and rub it down?

    You can dip the sand paper or run the whole thing under water while you work. The idea is to keep water around to keep the pieces of paint from clogging the ridges of the sandpaper. Also, rub very gently and DO NOT use much force around the edges. It will remove all of the clear and paint in just a few strokes if you aren't careful, even with a 1500 grit paper wet

    Just have fun with it. If you screw up, just strip it and rock out again. Good luck and post some pics!

    Very cool. You'll find out in a couple days if you sanded too much. If the color still seems good but it feels sticky or scratches easily with your finger, then the clear has been sanded through and you should consider doing it again. Also, don't handle it for a few days at least so the clear has enough time to harden. These are all things I did with my first blue paint job on here and will have to do it again one of these days. Keep the thread updated with some finals pics...easpecially if you get rid of the orange peel and it holds up.

    Sorry, didn't see the other question. The clear will have a drying time listed on the label. I would wait that long (3-4 hours I would assume), then sand it. The curing time, however, will be much longer and won't be listed. Just wait a few days and get a spare housing so you aren't tempted to rush it back together. Keep in mind I'm not an expert on this, these are just observations I made during my first attempt. If you handle it too early, then the oils in your hands will rub off the clear and you'll be a sad panda.

    I know this is old, but I am going back to my BB and was wondering if anyone else found a good clear coat to use. I have krylon plastic spraypaint and im going to get 600 grit sand paper. what clear coat would be best? Thanks!
