Re: Need paint help
After you finish your body work so that its finished in 600 grit wet, scuff the rest of the panel with 800 wet really good. With water based you want almost a dust coat, pull back on the volume amount on your gun so you just have a VERY light mist, do a VERY slightly heavier coat on the body work first then do a dust coat around the area to feather it. Clear the whole panel. Water based is easier to work with just like redknocker says and it seems to color match very well compared to solvent. Good luck in your efforts, I know the stress of trying to blend something and wanting perfect results. Def dont do rattle can crap no matter how tempting, the cheap primer always gets bitchy with the water based product.
