  • SilvaChrome?

    Hi, just used the kit and it works Great!
    One thing I did get first time was
    When I put the lacquer on The finish
    turned a little gold in color?
    I used the same gun I used for the sensitizer
    I ran Thinner though the gun to clean it before putting in
    the Paint ,would just a slight bit of
    Sensitizer in my gun contaminate my top coat
    and make it turn the gold color?
    I noticed the Lacquer has a slight Amber tint to it.
    Thanks Jdee

    Well as it dried It got much better.
    Just a very little of the gold look left..
    Guess I gotta practice with this.
    Its some really cool stuff!
    I made some temp Cups for the guns LOL
    Works just fine, a few beer bottles and some paint sticks

      Sorry Back again, Can the Base coat
      Be wet sanded after its \"dry\" before its
      sensitized and metalized?
      Thanks I\'m having a blast with this stuff..

        Can you explain what you\'re trying to do by sanding the part? I don\'t think sanding the base coat will accomplish much other than removing it from the part.

          I got a little texture on the parts that I used the product on, and thought that if
          I had a real smooth surface Like glass
          I would get a better overall finish.
          I guess I could put a heavier top coat
          on and sand and buff that out.

            The texture is likely caused by orange peeling of the basecoat. This can be prevented by practicing your spray technique a little more. Apply a thinner layer
