Sand the primer to 800 grit before you spray your pearl BC.

Yea there were some voids in the filler where I had to build up in a few areas and I have to fill those real quick and sand down again. Then I'll go back over everything with 600 grit, then custom mini spoiler, primer, 800 again, then paint! Woohoo I hope to be done by the end of the weekend!

It's not perfect in a few spots but at this point I don't really care that much I mainly want to see how the 18L rattle comes out. Thanks again for the advice!

My arm is so damn tired, but the trunk is prettttty smooth. I know it won't be perfect but I can barely move my arm and need to save some power for primer, here's some progress pix

View off roof


smooth trunk, I hope


Back in apt/garage for final touch ups before mini spoiler goes on.


Grille installed

Thanks, philly rules. Yea gary hooked it up but I did have to bang out the imperfections with a regular hammer then fill, not too tough. For the spoiler I used half of the classic garage seal, and I just set it last night, today I am molding it into the trunk!! Hopefully should come out pretty nice, thanks for all encouragement from the brethren!

The real moment of truth will come when it's time to paint though. I wonder 1- how much will the 18L match, and 2- how well the rattle cans will apply paint. I figure that a regular pressure sprayer can't be THAT drastically different if I just take my time...

Lipspoiler molded onto trunk! Now all I have to do is wait till it dries, sand then primer/paint!! I hate the wait downtime...

Went once over my window spoiler... looks good! The advice to lay 1st coat on thin then 2nd coat heavy was great advice... it's nice and smooth, no orange peel at all!!!

Good job so far.

Single stage doesn't really orange peel. Its the top clear coat that usually gets the orange peel and runs.

Looks great so far!, interested to see how your spoiler comes out when all said and done!

Just picked up a used Iwata HVLP hlp-400, pretty excited!

Nice! However I am impressed how well this paint mix is working out... it orange peeled a little bit at first when it was thin, then when I actually got the nozzle closer and had thicker/more even paint on there it started to atomize very well. I think the pressure of the aerosol helped spread it a bit more evenly? I'll try to get better pics later, I think it came out well!

I have a keyed hood and door right now too, kinda makes me want to get like 20 cans and a bunch of 800 grit paper and 5 guys.... and do the whole car

Also have to say thumbs up to the Sherwin Williams Automotive paint guy, he knew his shiz and I think there is clear coat and some sort of curing agent in each can too that helps it atomize. It's pretty smooth! Might do another coat on the spoiler to perfect the technique before I hit the trunk! Should be ready to get 'canned' soon

That stuff seems to have a TON of flake in it...more so than any JBP wrx or STi i've ever seen. Im curious to see how it matches on the car.

No idea how well it will match yet... but I dunno how many jbp's you've seen before For sure it will be sans swirls to start, and apparently there is green and gold flake in the java.
