I really should know better! It's been far too warm painting, well spraying. And I ended up with a very slight 'orange peel' effect in places. All it not lost! Using a fibre glass pencil or Garryflex abrasive blocks, you can lightly smooth the surface of the paint once it's hardened for two or three days, then you polish the result (which will be covered in lots of small scratches) with a cotton bud and T-Cut.
What you mustn't do it continue to polish the paint for too long because you've become too engrossed with Test Match Special! If you do, this will be the result, you'll go through the paint and reveal the primer beneath!
I think we'll need another coat of black paint!
