Uh oh! Any tips on spraying solvent over water? Sealer over work first or what? I'm scared of feather edges showing through.

Same as any other car. It just basecoat. Once dried there is no water left.

You shouldn't base over featheredges anyway. Doesnt matter what is on the car. Seal or prime.
Don't eat yellow snow!

As above, it shouldn't make any difference to how you approach the job.

I've even applied solvent base after putting on a water based ground coat, and vice versa. As long as you're generous with the drying times of each there's no need to worry.

I believe most car companies have been spraying some sort of waterborne for awhile. GM even had some in the 80'.

Sorry yeah I meant seal before primer. We don't really use much sealer here. Didn't know if there was another step necessary between the normal steps.

They always come beat to hell, so after a little bodywork I usually spray them with the 4:1:1 primer. It sprays real nice and takes minimal sanding.

I was talking about new OEM replacement parts not repro parts for resto jobs.

Very rarely do ours require any repair.Interesting that you guys sand and prime and sand new parts again.
