After five coats of paint, we’re getting close to something that looks good. I think a sixth coat is required and I’ll add that after this gets a chance to cure for a day. I’d like to point out that the idea that five coats of paint will fill all panel lines and leave you with an unrecognizable blob is misguided.
However, All that paint slinging means that touch-ups will be needed.
As I mentioned before, you can’t put flat paint over gloss. So I’ll be using the clear flat on the gloss white to make it possible to paint over it. Then the touch-ups will be done, then the stippling will be done, and the demarcation between the white and blue should be particularly challenging.
