Here's a teaser...the weather was warm enough over the past weekend that I made a lot of progress on getting my set painted and clear coated. The Flint Mica came out great! However, to my rather discerning eye, there is a little too much 'orange peel' in the clear for my tastes. A buddy at work paints motorcycles as a side business and he's going to take a look at my work so far and make some suggestions. Based upon my description today, he thinks that perhaps gentle wet sanding with some 1,200 or 1,500 grit sandpaper might do the trick, then spray on another coat or two of clear to finish it off. I'll post up the final pics when they are ready. Stay tuned!
