I recently painted my rocket bunny v2 bumper. It is fiberglass, but was costed with a black shiny material (allegedly ready to paint). I went to the local paint shop and got all that I needed to finish this job.
I unfortunately had gun issues being my first time. Once the paint and clear coats were on I had really bad orange peel. I know why, and I believe I know what I need to do next time to prevent (was all gun and pressure issues).
What I am looking for is advice on how to fix my mess ups. I primered (2k) 2-3 layers, paint 2-3 layers and clear was 2 coats. I sanded it quite a few times to correct the orange peel. Overall I was happy with it on its own. On the car it's darker and not as shiny.
I am debating redoing it all, but wasn't sure if it may be better to scuff it up and throw a new coat on.
What do the more experiences people suggest? Start from scratch and sand the whole thing down or scuff it up and throw some paint and clear coat on and buffer/polish it to shine.
Zoom in to see the color mismatch. I also had some spots where I think I sanded through the clear coat like the newb I am.
Hope the imgs work.
Thanks in advance.
