sideskirts paint not turning out so good...
ok i am on the 3rd coat of paint on my sideskirts with SUPERWHITE. it's turning out better but im having one problem. wherever i start spraying is thicker than the rest of the place. and it also is dripping in those places... will this clear up as i paint more coats or do i have a problemo? also is the 2000 celi SUPERWHITE 1 OR 2? thanks


you happy boy?

when you spray point move your hand from left right and don't stay in one spot for long

exactly.. do light coats. can't emphasize LIGHT enough. Also, don't do TOO many coats.. too much paint makes it more prone to peeling, cracking, etc.

I would also start the actual paint going, not on the side skirt, so that first blast hits the ground or air, then it's an even flow from one end to the other.
