    When i have added the clear coat to it, it was turning out pretty thick. I would just paint it then BSE it to try and save the paint and you are rough with it ; )

    i sanded with 150, then 250 to smooth it out, then added a thick layer or 2 and thats about it.

    I did it both ways actually.....with the original case i had sanded cause i had tried going the other route.....sand, primer, paint, clear....didn't like the results so i sanded it all back off then fusioned it flat black.

    then with the red case from cnn.cn i didn't sand anything i figured i'd try laying the fusion down and see what happened....looks amazing!! so smooth almost factory like!! I'll get some better quality pics later tonight and post em up

    sanding it also takes away from the end thickness after adding the paint too. Makes it more original looking.

    BTW, in the beginning, I thought that heading the faceplate would help seal the paint better, but it warped the keyboard so it was raised hear the Q, W, E, R, ETC.

    DO NOT HEAT !! : )

    You did a great job with the flat black. Does it chip or crack at all?

    it will smell for maybe a day or so....the fusion paint says it takes up to a week to fully cure....so you might have a slight smell for a week at most....mine has been done for a few weeks now and doesn't smell lol.......
