Started to paint up my Celica .
Put this stuff on at the right mesures.
Rapide Thinner and Hardner, temo was about 16 c
1st coat most like power and rufcast wall, after a good rub down put 2nd coat on if i was spraing from to far it was landing as dry powder closer it was smooth in bits other bits well most bits , it turned out like a rufcast wall, hell to rub down and to get it smooth again i was rubbing a lot off and going back to the paint underneath.

should i use the same primer but with a less rapide thinners and hardner and should i use more thinners in the mix and less hardner, see pics, top coat will be Ford daytona yellow, so take it the bace coat will have to be right or will see through.

no experience with nasty modern paints - but I think a spare panel for trial mixes would be better than spoiling all your hard work on the car!
