Did you get the can of base coat made up or was it off the shelf?
The paint came off NuAgane Internet site and was mixed to code. They are doing a deal currently whereby you get a free can of lacquer with every can of base, which makes it very good value. Cost me about £26 for 2 cans of base and 2 cans of clear.
The fresh Silk Red is a lovely colour and what looked nice and bright before ( e.g. Drivers door), now looks very dull against the new paint. I think it's the lacquer that yellows and dulls the base coat on aged paint. Am now thinking that at the price, I might well be buying a few more cans and flashing over most panels. - More work, but very rewarding, and with less rubbing down, maybe a lot quicker.

.... It wasn't meant to be this way. There's an Elite in the garage that's feeling very left out..... But I was warned. No regrets though. I'd do it again and I do have a Lotus I can drive 😊👍😊.

What goes together.... Must come apart.
