    Right......

    ...yesterday the paint arrived. Lovely. So today i got the part and primered it, and it was a great finish. Let it dry for a while indoors and then went and sprayed it the Ford colour. I sprayed it quite a few times (5 i think)......but every time it came up a "matt like" finish when dry. Fair enough i thought, after it is laquered it will become as shiny as the rest of the car. I spent a lot of time giving it a few (4 i think) layers of laquer.....hopes high that it was gonna "shine up"...........it did........a bit.

    Does anyone know why it is not shiny?

    Help/Advice needed & appreciated.

    was it nice and warm where you painted it ?
    if it was outside it was too cold for painting and that is the reason its dull.

    Yes I agree with bmwkev, it must be warm to spray paint, otherwise it will be dull. You maybe able to shine it up with T-cut & polish in a day or two.

    I've always found the following to give good results. Wait 5 mins between coats in warm weather and 10 when its colder (like now)
    • Wet sand with 600 grit to give a key
    • 1 or 2 light coats of primer with 5-10minutes flash off time between coats
    • Wait 5-10 mins after last coat
    • 1 or 2 light coats of colour, you are only looking to colour the part with the minimal amount of paint possible. Don't be tempted to lay the colour on thick as it won't make it look any better
    • Wait 5-10 mins after last colour coat
    • First coat of clear should be almost a dusting to give the subsequent coats something to stick to (this will help prevent runs)
    • Wait 5 mins
    • Give the part about 2 or 3 coats of clear waiting about 10 minutes between coats

    Don't let the previous layer of paint fully dry before putting the next one on. This is what makes paint flake off in layers as the coats need to be tacky in order to properly bond with each other.

    Leave the paint to cure for about 2-3 days, to get a perfect finish give it a light wet sand with 1200 grit then use a cutting compound like G3 to get rid of the sanding scratches and finally a polish with your favourite product.

    Binman. You are a legend. I have copied and pasted that lot and saved it on my laptop.

    Now that this advice has come in i might sand it back and have another bash. Practice makes perfect.

    This forum is the bomb for decent advice.

    Cheers

    Amos
