      Yeah, I tried that one. Yellow tinge. Use a test piece, see if you get the same issue

            No, but it's like nicotine or fat tinge. I ended up not clear coating cause I couldn't find anything

              Did you paint on top of the cab or did you prime and stuff too?

                Same process as you. Tried three different clear coats with similar results. I was spewing.

                    No major updates but slow progress from the weekend.

                    I got one clear coat on without any perceived yellow tinge (at least to my eyes)



                    Started the first coat of the other metal panels...



                    Still need to prime the big panel, but that can be a job for this weekend

                    Without spending too much money trying different paint to find the closest to the feet and top end cap, I found this particular colour (thanks Hyundai! )



                    The feet and cap before the work...







                    A quick comparison (she'll do!)



                    And the end product!







                    I'm quite happy with the way the colour has turned out, will do a wetsand and another coat before putting the clear coat on.

                        Yeah powder coating would've been good and quick.. But tbh.. I wasn't prepared to spend that much.

                        Time and effort I'm not counting as it's part of the "project" and the "fun" I guess

                        The other thing is, I still needed to paint the plastic bits so painting it all the same colour just made more sense for me to suit my budget.

                          What felt like a long day's worth of work, doesn't show in pics hahah

                          The end caps are now done and the base is now done!

                          Got the wheels on and two coats of clear.



                          Unfortunately, not spraying in a dust proof booth meant in between clear coats, a few dust bunnies got stuck (it is what it is)

                          Now I wait a few days for the clear to cure..

                          I prepped the bottom part of the CP early this morning with a coat of primer..







                          Managed to get the last can I had to do one coat of white.. Time to call it a day



                          A trip to bunnings tomorrow to buy some more cans of appliance white and clear.

                              It doesn't appear to be.

                                Awesome. I'll have to get some. Maybe I left mine too long or something
