Thought I'd share this idea as it works great if primer is dry....may mean 3 coats of primer = 3 hours a coat, but I want this right. I got a new bottle of AK black base coat and tested, it dries, so I'll use this as my base black for the chrome.............this stuff is so easy to use, I tend to wet coat it and it just self levels to a perfect finish and dries great (well if its not a faulty batch 😉 )

will follow your paint work also Ted... I have a gloss black acrylic color designed to be applied before the chrome color... wonder if I can use it for a base color and let it simply black. What about the clear coat... is it usefull if the color is already gloss ? Stupid questions here... but never done this before !

I would love to lay it all out for you but I’m in the dark also. I’ve failed twice already. Hundreds of videos on line from car modelers who make it look easy using rattle cans. When I finish sanding I will review some selected videos and choose by poison for the third time. Good luck to us both.

By the way, In the US, the green pad you are showing has one brand name of SCOTCH BRITE. It is available in the sheets shown in your picture, but also molded to a sponge. might help if you were wet sanding with it [?] since the sponge will hold water. Also, I guess the sponge would help it contour to curves and such. I'm gonna try using that material. Thanks again for that tip.

Looks like you turned this build, around, Keith.  Nice progress, though I don't think I'll ever do a proper car build.  My Revell dragster has scarred me for life!
