Step 2: Painting.
- I lay down two coats of primer and generally two coats of paint for each color. On the Cannondale I used three for the base tan color.
- I do a light sanding between coats of color with 600grit wet/dry paper. The paper cuts through low spots pretty quick so don’t stay in one area too long. I don’t sand when doing the detail bits.
- I like to use allot of clear for extra protection. Don’t load it up in one big coat, use a couple light coats and let them dry in between.
