I couldn't finish them today since it got too cold to paint outside and it was raining also so i couldnt get allot done. I have 3 center caps painted and clear coated and 2 Star's painted and clear coated. Hopefully tomorrow i can finish up and have them on Thursday morning since i'll give them 10 hours to dry or so. I have some adhesion promoter i used on the star instead of Sanding it and the paint and clear coat came together pretty well so everything should be done tomorrow hopefully!

Yeah for some reason the Star always has a glare of light coming from it making it look chrome at certain angles i seen other ones done online and it was the same way. I plan on finishing up on them today just gotta sand ,aybe 5 min and then paint and will be done to dry until tomorrow!

Well i almost have everything painted i just gotta put 2 or 3 mre coats on 1 star and let them sit until tomorrow sometime to make sure there really dry before i bolt them on the truck. The last 2 center caps and 3 stars i just put around 4 good even coats on them with no Cleat coat. I had started to put 1 coat of clear on a center cap and star not heavy at all and it had some slight cracking in only a few spots?
Idk why it did this maybe i didnt let the paint dry enough even though i let it sit for around 15 min. which i forgot the least amount of time to wait between coats was 30 minutes! I just painted over it with a few heave coats and you cant even tell now it cracked slightly. I'm almost out of clear coat so i guess tomorrow ill pick another bottle up and coat the remaining pieces so i want have any chipping or fading!

haha yeah me too man! It seems like it took me forever to finally finish them up though i swear! I finished painting them today i guess tomorrow i'll buy another can of clear coat to put on the pieces i havent yet and hopefully that would be more than enough time for the paint to dry so i want have any cracking in the paint! Do you think it will crack or anything since im gonna let it cure for around 16 hours or so? I assume it want but will be pissed if it does lol!
