LOL. Thanks guys. I can't wait to have the top finished in the Satin Black. The engine compartment came out with just the right amount of shine (or lack, thereof) that I was looking for. I don't know how familiar you guys are with how a stock, AAR Cuda looks, but they had a satin black finish covering the entire hood and the tops of the fenders from the factory. I was checking one out at a show a couple of weeks ago and it had the same low gloss finish I wanted on this car. The Hot Rod Flatz paint seems to spray very nice but the fumes have a real kick to them. (Yes, I wear a respirator while spraying but the smell was still potent in the garage later on.)

You did use a quality activated primer on the car? If not, the activator and reducer of the paint can soften the primer and give you a nice, unwanted crackle finish. And why prime the whole top just to put on a layer of paint? This will give you more build-up and a more pronounced tape line. I would have just wet sanded all of the dead off and taped and shot.
If you're gonna build it, make it fast!

The top of the car was beyond just wet sanding. There were areas where the clearcoat was still intact and others where it was completely gone. Kind of like a patchwork of different surfaces. I also had to repair some dents in the top of the driver fender. Hopefully it will look good when I'm done. I wasn't really concerned about the more pronounced tape line. Not looking to make a show car out of it. Eventually the sides of the car are going to have to be painted too.

No such thing...it might be a bit dead, but you can't tell me that sanding with 600 or even 400 would not take it out. I can understand you needing to fix a couple of dents, but to prime the whole thing is just a waste of product and just adds to the build of material at the break....tape line. To each his own, but just wondering if there was an actual reason.
