Brief Description:  Cherokee Pant Fix & Paint 6

I applied tape where the gold and red stripes would go. Then I painted.

I followed the spec sheets to a T. Formula mixtures are by volume (NOT WEIGHT). Flash time between coats is extremely important so you don't get gas bubble build up by expanding paint which will cause "fish eyes."

I applied a light coat, and two medium coats per directions. Some urethane is only two coats.

It looked pretty good. I did get a couple odd spots that needed further fixing. There were these little holes, pin hole size where paint didn't stick. Turns out it is due to imperfections on the surface. I needed to do a better job cleaning before painting and I added a filter at the gun

I fixed the pin holes by dropping a drop of paint on them, and it blended in. Later when I saw them during the first coat I hit them with a small brush and that made them go away. The 2nd and 3rd coat covered them up.

Oh, I should mention. Don't need breathable air because the draft in the booth carries the dust cloud away. Just a gas mask is sufficient. I also wear a Tyvek suit and safety glasses.
