    20 coats in 2 hours?

    What was your process?

    Seems to me, folk have a fair few different ways of doing the self tint. When i did mine, i left 15mins between each coat. I did about 12 coats on the first day, but by then it was getting late & the room needed time to air out. These layers were probably acutally too light as well, especially the first few.

    The 2nd day i did it, i made sure the layers were much thicker. Left 15mins between coats. Still took 2 cans though

    2 layers of lacquer, but they didn't seem too shiney. Certainly not compared to SRiTaff's rears, so i've just put a 3rd layer on today & that's the job done.

    Then again, i was doing full lights, so of course i'd use more than you.

    yeah chap, they were very light layer's so i made sure i did it evenly, and because they were light, it dried in minute's, Mother nature was my drying agent =)

    lol, in that case, thinking about it, i probably sprayed waaaaaaay too light to begin with and left silly amounts of drying time.

    Not to worry, they're done now
