    I'm not no, but with a name like West I still get a few funny looks when the gun comes out. Granted, people aren't used to seeing guns in Post Offices but there you go!

    It started bubbling after the first coat of black so once that happened I knew it wasn't going to be great so I did the rest fairly quickly. I left about 20 - 30 minutes in between coats but I laid them on pretty quickly. I'll get them prepped and painted in the next week or two and post the results.

    Cheers guys.

    no more than 5 mins between coats on a cold day, so with warmer temp you want to get the next coat on within 2-3mins.

    Use a 2k primer and 2k paint, its shine will match the other paint on your car and its hard wearing/longer lasting
