This is for my 75, but maybe there'll be a paint expert on here.
Any paint experts out there? I've done a fair bit of car painting in my time, but always with plain colours, where an average finish can be improved by cutting with 1200 grit wet-and-dry and/or a polishing compound, T-Cut etc.
I've knocked out, filled, and flatted the dent my lovely wife made for me, and sprayed it with Black Pearlescent from a rattle-can. Now, the finish definitely needs polishing up, but should I polish it before and/or after applying the lacquer?
I suspect both, but I'm slightly concerned that I might dull the surface of the base coat and then it will always be dull under the lacquer.
PS - the F failed it's MoT yesterday.
More sill welding needed. Think I'll just get it patched again this year, then get myself set up with welding kit again. I used to do a fair bit, but sold it all when we went to Oz. Anyone know if these new fangled gasless mig welders are any good?
