Quoted from northerndude:

Omg, I’m missing some reading I’m thinking, should I have pre-sanded my Fish Tales here before I start filling a couple low spots before I clear?

The clear does not stick well to glossy surfaces.

So we rough it up, then drip in our clear to fill cupped inserts or other glossy low-spots.

Quoted from northerndude:

Toss some 400 on a smaller block and it’ll find some of he low points also I bet?

Use a hand sander (like a 10x4" drywall sanding block) rather than a powered sander, if you are new to clearcoating.

Sand the playfield, and you will quickly see the low spots.

Once you have the whole playfield sanded, take the paper, and by hand, sand the low spots (a block won't follow the curves).

Tilt the playfield in the light, there should be no glossy spots.

You can use a wire brush to get into openings and rough the hard to reach spots.

If the back of the playfield is still populated, tape off large openings, smaller ones will be fine:

Just finished wet sanding and buffing my BK playfields. Wet sanded with 1000, then 1500, then 2000 grit. Then buffed it out with Meguiars number two and then a machine glaze after that. Wow, it looks incredible.

Nice, sanded tonight, started at 1500-2000-2500-3000 did it by hand with a hand held block. Got it pretty dang smooth! I haven't used the Meguiars cutter creme or the final creme yet, tomorrow eve probably.

I thought the playfield looked really great before the wet sand and buff. I almost didn't want to do it and not get a better result. But after wet sanding it and buffing it out, there is a huge difference and well worth the extra time to finish it properly.

haven't kept up with this thread in a while. this video showed up in my youtube feed. Thought it was interesting that this guy repainted his car fender using rattle cans and followed up with 3 coats of spraymax and it came out great (except for some minor drip by not keeping his glove taught and caught some of the spray)

How many days after you use Spray Max 2k, can you wet sand and polish ?

#707 60 days ago

I usually wait at least 2 weeks if there is only a lock down coat and then a finish coat. The longer the better. It will shrink and if you play it too soon it will dimple

SDTM Cary Hardy: Pinball Clear Coating Booth on a Budget

#709 27 days ago

I spray late afternoon on a calm day in my backyard. No booth needed. Dries so quickly I have never had a problem.
Lighting is perfect.
I roll the rotisserie into my shed overnight and we are good to go.

#710 27 days ago

Great you are making a booth and well done. I like the video as it is tackling this work from the necessary safety angle.

I use a similar spray booth bigger but outside never inside, this clear stuff is too nasty. The weather can and will push the clear back into your garage. Bring your play-field in to your garage to cure after an hour or so if the weather dictates.

Oh wow!

He read the instructions but thought they were in a foreign language think it was in English. The words he though were foreign perhaps were cyanide or carcinogenic. I don't think that was the first time he has used it after that comment.

And yes he now has a clear coat film on his lungs.
Wow....

#714 25 days ago

Freakin crazy

I spray outside with a mask and full suit.

#715 25 days ago

When using this for the initial base coat, how long does it take before I can start on my touch-ups?

#716 25 days ago

You should be able to send the base coat the next day depending on how thick it is. I usually wait a week on a thin coat, sand it smooth and begin touch up. It's going to shrink some if it is thick.
If you can smell it when sanding it is not cured. And is still toxic IMO.

The reckless abandon, yet 100% confidence, with which this guy sprays all around himself cracks me up. RIP dude

#718 25 days ago

He looks immune to it though.

For those who used 2 parts clear before, there's no way to stand around that stuff without a mask. At least for me...

He's a beast.

Well I guess after that first coat of clear throughout your respiratory system, smells just don't bother you any more lol

#720 25 days ago

I've seen some people spraying 2K outside without a mask. While not advisable, I think you can "get away with it" if you don't do it on a regular basis. But inside a small basement is really tough...especially with the smell as Plumonium mentioned...

& if you look at the comments on his utube vid, no one makes a huge deal about it

#723 25 days ago
Quoted from Frogger1108:

If you want to see how you really use 2K look at this:

I cannot believe his glasses are still transparent with all the fumes and spraying of 2K he is doing. He should have sprayed his face for good measure.
Even if you hold your breath (which he probably does), the vaporized clear coat will stick to your mucus and all the wet part of your body, including your eyes.
With a thick enough coat of clear on his eyes, he may do without his glasses. That is how you fix vision problems.

That video was quite funny and illustrating all the things you should NOT do.

This must be the foreign language he was struggling to read.

Ha ha ha hilarious. Your early funeral.

#727 24 days ago

I doubt he has a motorcycle helmet. Otherwise, he would have taken the opportunity to Spraymax2K that as well.

Safety first = more beer and women.

Anyone else notice how much that dude looks like Milton from Office Space?

I've been having issues with the last two cans of Spraymax that I've used. First time, I assumed the can's pressure was not quite right but the second can did the same although to a lesser extent. The first can was something that I had on the shelf, it was never activated until I sprayed it. Second can was from a new order but date stamped 9/2018.

I'm spraying on a horizontal surface and I get drops of clear falling onto the surface. Am I expecting too much from a spray bomb when it comes to a horizontal spraying surface?

#730 4 days ago

I have had the drips a few times. Its from the spray fan actually getting close to the can rim and collecting on it and at time it looks like it slightly runs down the spray nozzle. I do about 6 left /right passes and then take my other hand with my gloves on and just wipe my finger on the lip / ridge to stop it from accumulating too much to and start to drip off.

#731 4 days ago

Be sure your glove is not in the fan of the spray pattern.
Also, maybe moving your finger back on button so the downward pressure angles the fan back rather than forward towards the rim of the can.
I have had other spray bombs leak at the stem. I tend to push the button further down than is necessary. Too much pressure. The pool grows and I don't know it until I see the droplets.
