That’s the beauty of base coat / clear coat  base dries so quickly it just needs a tack cloth before clearing. After clear coat you sand 600 or higher. Repeat till satisfied on base . Then apply several clear coats , buff and sand till you can’lt lift anything...

  Dakazman: Beautiful job on your rebuild so far. I am jealous.  I have had a 1970 S2 ( 0063R ) for twenty years and am
just now getting ready to rebuild it. I have it stripped and the next job will be body removal. I will be reading your posts to
get tips and ideas on what needs doing. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing with the group.

Welcome to the forum. Glad to see another s2 coming back from the grave. Lol .
I will keep you up to date . Remember to take a lot of pictures, it will help you document your progress and help putting it back together. Please introduce yourself to all and tell us more about your ride. 20 years sitting but I see some work accomplished. What type engine ...etc,etc.

That’s the corona base G9900 black . It’s the base for all dark colors the deepest black made.
When sanded out and using the 3 step 3 m process to finish it looks like a black mirror.
I used a foam cutting pad next will be a foam finishing pad.

It really is nice work. I know black can polish up well and that putting the work in will give great results, but yours is the best I've seen.  I would be very, very proud of a finish as good as that.

Thanks guys I really appreciate your comments. I will keep posting pictures and today I should have the body ready to buff out. Hopefully I can get it put back together without scratching it ....
