ok was doing a favour for my sister today, paddys day, when i should have been in the pub. a paint and repair on a door and a new wing painted. on a dark blue passat. the only primer i had was grey so not ideal for a dark colour, i should've used a black sealer i know.
anyway i was given 250ml of basecoat and it just didn't cover enough. and as it's a sunday i can't get more paint and tomorrow is a bank holiday.

on tuesday can i give the basecoat a scuff and paint over it?

As long as you scuff it, it should be fine.

Shadow Blue by any chance? Bad coverage with every brand of paint I've used! :lol1

As above - scuff it and you're good to go

this is the one! :




also i think there's some sanding marks in the basecoat. a few pigtails. my sisters husband was watching me during the whole process of repairing the car so i couldn't concentrate properly and didn't work to the best of my ability! is there anything i can do to rectify these sanding scratches now before clear. i'll be getting another 250ml of basecoat tomorrow.

Just give them a a light rub to flatten them out before you rebase and maybe give that area a light coat or two let dry well before going over all again.
If I'm a little unsure or just to be safe I would look through any paint in the cupboard for a similar colour to spray on first to colour the primer before using proper colour.

One of the most annoying things somebody watching you work drives me :cens nuts I've told people to get te :cens k outa my sight before now :chair

ya i just wished i used some black sealer now, but what can u do. you're brain doesn't work right with ppl staring at u! what grade would you sand it with? i have grey scotch and i have p800 discs.
i'm pretty much just out of college and just finished building the shed so no stocks of old paint or anything, this is actually my first job in the new shed, first proper job on my own! as time goes on though i'll start building stuff up. all i want know is a proper set of sanding blocks, hammers and dollies and a stud welder/slide hammer.

cheers for the help!
