Hmm...I'll try lighter coats.Old-Duckman said:I ain't no bodyman but maybe too thick a coat?? Try light (nearly dry) coats. Once those dry OK, then you should be able to lay on heavier coats w/o fisheyes...
I take it that you don't like the carbon fiber look?
I notice your painter makes you do it........ [clap]. The reason is you couldn't afford to have him do it.Mac900 said:My painter makes me take a pin and a small bit of urethane clear and individually dob the pinholes. Then sand back to flat. Spray clearcoat. Sand. Dob. Sand. Spray clearcoat. Repeat process as penance for some unknown number of past sins. It is a major pain in the butt. It mostly happens with carbon pieces that use a low resin content, i.e. the pieces you get from Ducati Performance. I have a DP carbon nose fairing on my desk now with the first coat of clear on it. 11ty billion f****'n little pinholes and I **** you not. It may take until Christmas to fix this one.
Check out the holes in the glare ----
So what's the best option? My rear hugger is due for it's semi-annual rattle can clear. I know what it's gonna look like....ducpainter said:Some of the newer carbon has a higher resin content to avoid this situation. The DP stuff is not very painter friendly.
