Here are pictures:
So, I have the dealer-issued spray paint. I think it'* some number like 98006 or so. However, I've only got one can, and because it'* spray paint, I'm not too excited about it. I got for free a brand new Campbell Hausfeld spray gun, and my compressor can easily run it. There'* a filter right before the adpater for the gun, and I have lots of teflon tape. I even have a power sander and access to some more types if the one is not the right kind (reciprocating 1/3 of a standard sheet).
I'd like to take off the spoiler, sand it down, prime it preferrably with a KILZ spray bottle or two, sand between primer layers, use the compressor and CH spray gun to paint the dark cherry metallic in several coats with sanding in between, and then a few coats of clearcoat. What clearcoat should I use? I like the spray bottle American Tradition lacquer. It doesn't seem to give up, but then again, look at what happened to the stock one.
So, does anyone have a few tips for me? It would be much appreciated. My goal is to have my spoiler be the best painted part of my car.
