I'm getting close to the point where I have to shoot my first layer of clear - but I'm not sure how many passes to do for the first coat.
My plan is to shoot three times:
First coat for locking in the current paint and give me a surface to airbrush
Second coat to cover the airbrush job and give me a surface for decals
Third coat as final top coat.
So for each coat am I doing multiple passes? And do I sand *between* those passes? Is it like this:
1st Coat: one quick pass, wait some time (hour or whatever according to 2pac spec sheet) for hardening, sand, fill depressions with eyedropper and knock down any pooled or raised areas, clean then pass again, sand
Repair paint on playfield
2nd coat: one pass, wait for sandable hardening, sand for tooth, pass again, sand
Decals and any paint touch ups missed
3rd coat, pass, wait for sandable hardening, sand for tooth, pass, sand, polish.
Is there a post that goes through the specific gameplan for passes?
