    Very tidy build. I especially like how you angled the buttons. That's a very OEM touch.

    Is that a special paint, or did you just do the 'misting' application?

    I usually put several light coats of sand-n-fill primer like that. If you use that (it's basically very thick primer) you can get the part looking really good and don't need to be an expert body/filler man.

    I'm not sure what paint he used, but when I do it I usually get the automotive grade exterior paint. When I do interior stuff I usually spray a few coats of the exterior paint, but from a little further away than recommended. This gives a good color, but slightly textured finish that even further hides any imperfections.

    This looks like he used a satin black or even one of the rubberized paints. I'm leaning more towards the satin black spray can though.

    Based on his previous revelations, my bet is that it's a readily-available SEM product applied by The Wizard of OEM.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Hey,

    For everyone that is wondering. I defintely use body filler. I use a couple different types to get the "walls" just right for primer. I only use primer to get a a nice smooth surface. You can't really fill defects in with primer unless they are like 220 grit sanding scratches. Basically the fab has to be 99% even before primer. Primer is just going to tell you where you need to spot putty small defects before final primer and paint.

    I spend a good amount of time in the primering phase. I usually do at least 5-6 stages of primering and sanding before it is as smooth and defect free.

    Then I will proceed with SEM Texture (not the primering style texture) SEM Texture is really authentic looking texture, although it is a bit diffucult to work with.

    After that I will go through a little process I developed in which I will apply the Satin Black paint for the final look

    You know, I thought the same thing too when I first saw his work...really ticked me off I didn't have the know how. Then it dawned on me to say "screw it, I'll send it to him to do". I've done it twice now for two separate builds and couldn't have been happier with the outcome.
