    hello i recently done my rear wheel arches and have filled them and sanded them . i tried one side and masked up so i just did the bit i filled but when i took off the mask it had a thick line round the edge where the tape was and was darker in colour . the reason for that is the primer was red oxide not grey so i got it off quick before it dried . i have also done a small bit on the boot at the bottom of number plate am scared of spraying again incase of discolour can someon shed some light on what to do and what products here in the uk to use thanks all

    for arches i never mask around the area, just cover the grey plastic trim and spray less of a coat the further you move from the arch. rub inbetween coats and let it dry properly overnight atleast. Then use a good load of T-Cut to even out where you have blended the color and laquer over the top.. easy
