Hey everyone, after reading through the section about touch up paint nearly 20 times, I finally decided to touch up my T2. Before and after pictures are included (the after picture still needs the orange paint around the insert, but you get the idea.) Don’t look too closely either, you’ll see my imperfections. But I figured it’s not terrible for my first time trying to match paint, use an airbrush, using frisket, etc. Thanks Vid for all the advice and suggestions.
However, the new paint is rather dull under the correct lighting. The old paint has a decent shine to it after I cleaned and waxed it, but the newly applied paint does not have that shine. I’m curious as to know if I apply a coat of wax over the new paint, will that help shine it up? Or is it better to keep wax off the new paint?
Im also wondering what is a good way to protect the paint? I’m not doing a full blow restore, so I’m not clearing the whole playfield. Should I clear the small area with a rattle can, wax it, apply wax and then cover with Mylar?
