    Removing clear lacquer spray

    Hi folks

    Just after a bit of advice from the painting gurus if poss

    Im painting the rear bumper on the e28 and ive done the top edge but havent lacquered it yet. Painted and lacquered the bottom edge and now ive got a fine mist of lacquer on the top half.

    Would it be ok to wet n dry the top half tomorrow then lacquer it as normal?

    Ive no paint left lol

    Thank, watty

    should polish out with rubbing compund. do it soon though while still soft. Will take less elbow grease.

    You can use T-cut, will be easier than using the AGSRP

    Well i tried the T cut and it was working fine and itll do the job but i didnt want to take too much new paint off, so the T cut works

    I used the SRP and that works good as well and only really removed the lacquer but took a bit longer than the T cut wouldve

    Cheers guys
