So, I figured out today that I mixed my 2K light on hardener, it dried ok but really pisses me off. So anyway, I have decided to finish blocking it out with 220, then reshooting the car (with the right mix ratio) and blocking it out again with 220, then 320.

It never ends...

I assume you mean don't be screwing up... well crap happens, so it is what it is. I don't think it is an issue, should be corrected by tomorrow. Still don't have the paint so I can put color on it anyway.

I added 1/2 -3/4 the right amount, for some reason the lines on the mixing cup confused me temporarily... Regardless, it dried and actually sands really well (a little too well as it is easy to burn through with 220). If the temp gets up today I will reshoot it with the right mix and block it again.

I shot up all of my 2K Urethane today, got approximately 2 more coats on the car (yes it was mixed correctly this time). It turned out pretty well, I am happy with it. Tomorrow, more block sanding... Then on to the sealer and then PAINT!!!!

Just ordered a new paint gun, haven't come this far to chance the job (plus I wanted one...). I ordered a Devibliss Finishline with 3 tips.

Thanks all. I am in a slight hurry to get this done as next week I am going to visit a company who is offering me a job (which I intend to take at this point); then I will be back working and will not have the time necessary to get this car painted. If I have paint on it, I can let it sit and cure, then perhaps wet sand and buff, then begin to put it together.

I sanded the car completely today/tonight with 220 and then 320. It is kind of hard to know when it is sanded enough. The car is very smooth and looks pretty good so I guess I will see when I get the sealer and paint on.

Well I used guide coat for the first blocking and it went pretty well. I didn't use it for the 320 sanding however. Guess I will see what I get. Just got my new Devilbiss finishline gun, trying to decide which tip to use; 1.3 or a 1.5.
