Painting tips

  1. Just got my van back after having some bodywork and paint. I've got some slight dull marks where flatting of the painted areas have gone into the existing paint, effectively dulling the laquer coat.
    I've also got ageing/swirl marks on the original paint as its now 14 years old and I've already found out to my cost that T-cut isnt the answer for metallic/solvent/lacquered finishes
    It a solvent paint, Seat Negri, with a heavy metallic content .

    Any advice on whats best to use/do to improve the finish?
  2. something less abrasive than t cut...:thinking:

  3. What type of paint is best to restore the black rubbery faux leathers of the dashboard? mine are pretty faded but don't want the paint to come off the first time I pull myself from that handle...

    PS: sorry if this is the wrong thread..newbie to the forums still.
