Default painting dilemma

so I've been doing a little rust fix up on the box of my truck, well i grinded it down to the metal, and primered it all. for once something was going smooth all i needed was to paint it so i washed and wet sanded it all down got the paint and started painting, well after the fourth coat it wasn't looking to good so i called the paint guy and told him what was going on he told me to put a couple coats of clear, coat on it. no big deal it still needed it, so clear coat went on it, it dried and surprise i got a truck with a two tone box, its flat black and a shiny black. *&%#ing great well i told the guy i got the paint from well it ended up i mixed the wrong hardener with the paint well he got me more paint more reducer and more hardener for free and then painted a bit for show to make sure everything was OK well it is now. but now i have start from square one and i have crappy weather all week long..

Agreed, it sucks that it didn't go right, but at least he DID help you out, he could easily have said no.

that sux... I've been waiting for the pollen to calm down so I can paint one of my bikes.... It's a PITA just to get good weather for this stuff... And I'm painting indoors with filters and fans in place. Still beats paying for someone else to do it wrong though...

Thats really sucks!! as long as it got all figured out though its good

Your gaining great experience doing it yourself, one thing i dont think i would want to attempt myself is body work, unless i had some experience on other things and the right tools, so good on you

Now all you have to do is scuff the paint with some red scotch bright and then use a base coat/ clear coat system. Preparation is 90% of a paint job.
