so i finished wet-sanding a motorcycle and laid down the paint and clear on sunday.
i would describe the result as nice... but it's not perfect. it's a two-tone scheme... orange over cream and i learned an important lesson about masking over light colours. don't use newspaper, it's leave dark smudges on the light colour. i fixed as much as i could before laying the clear... but there's a couple spots i'm not happy with - mostly because they were so avoidable.
i'm thinking about sanding the clear above the cream on the tank and re-spraying the base colour and clear over top. is that feasible or do you have to sand back down to primer before laying basecoat?
also, i had planned to be able to spray everything in daylight on sunday, but things took longer than i'd hoped and i ended up having to spray the clear in very poor lighting. that left me with a few runs to repair and more orange peel than i would have hoped. i don't have a buffing rig yet, so i may try fine sanding and laying more clear over top - see how that works out.
anyway... looking for advice to fix the smudges and whether i can lay basecoat on top of sanded clear.
