I got off work a little early today and had to do something besides sit at the PC and watch TV over my shoulder so I started a fire in the woodstove in the garage. I decided I was going to paint some of my model car projects. 1st coat went okay but the following coats were disasters. If this is any indication of the kind of paint-job I can do in this garage I won't even feel comfortable spraying primer! I'm going to see if I can salvage these without stripping them down to bare plastic again. The gold Nova may nib-sand okay but the black S-10 will probably have to be stripped. Besides all the dirt the paint pulled away from edges and details so you can see the color under the black. I even scuffed it with a gray Scotch-Brite pad before spraying. Maybe it's just the cheap-ass wal-mart paint. I'll take a couple photos and you can see. Maybe a couple beers will help me out! lol!
