Thanks, I'll check it out, BTW this what it looked like back January before my black base coat started to lift from the primer I probably let the shop get too cold that night. Now it's blistering all over. Since I had wanted to do it matt black, I think I'll give it try, have to strip down to bare and redo anyway..
Sharp looking car. Black & silver with a red accent always looks good. Love the way you have a thin black line under the red molding.
Bet you used lacquer primer...
Since you have to strip it anyway, go with the DP epoxy primer & you won't have that problem. If you have a good smooth surface, you don't even have to sand the epoxy if you shoot it soon after priming (read the tech sheet). If it's not completely smooth, give the epoxy 3 or 4 days to cure a little & wet sand it with 400.
I'd stick with a gloss clear & the same paintjob. Looks too good to try a semi-flat experiment.
That's my hood vent, right? Can you send or post some pics of it so I can put them on my website? Plan to update that website one of these days...
