definitely not that way :)

you can just sand them back using wet+dry and a block and then buff it.

hello people im back.... hope you all had a lovely xmass/newyear and perhaps a holiday.

i had a break over the holidays. back into it now but i had to sand the surface rust off  ;)
one question, i have started to lay down the undercoat (one section at a time as i fix small repairs) and i noticed in places it stands out a bit like sand or powder but is flat in others?

i know you have to sand the entire car before putting the color on but i was just wondering if its my technique that is causing the powder effect or is that just how primer looks before a wet sand and im just a big fat noob?

sounds like overspray - either paint mixed to thick or to thin - thick = big dust, thin = little dust
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

its a primer/filler

1-1 for primer
1-3/4 for filler

i went 1-1, 200ml undercoat and 200ml thinners.

yeah sounds like your gun isn't setup properly...
just play with it while painting on a scrap piece and you should be able to dial it in that way....

i painted a new panel and added a bit more thinners and i also payed more attention to gun distance and this panel came out smooth as a babies bum...

i think i was to far away from the panel and the paint was drying before they hit the metal...

i forgot to watch the gun and not the car ::)
