Range Vent.


I spray painted my range vent with Rustoleum lacquer. I have some over spray and was wondering if one can wet sand this paint.

Maybe over spray was the wrong term...It's supposed to be a high gloss finish and it's rough, so I was wondering if I could wet sand it smooth and make it glossy like a car.

Oh, in that case, yes, carefully wet-sanding the paint should enhance the gloss. If the paint appears to be too soft for this, try automotive enamel.

you're probably thinking of orange peel finish

I called it over spray because it is like dust on the finish not like orange peel. I wa thinking wet sanding or a polishing compound would smooth it out. I'm going to let the paint cure for a few days and try wet sanding.

Ah - I think I know exactly what you are talking about. Either you got a bad can, it wasn't mixed well enough, or you are spraying at the wrong temperature. I try to avoid Rustoleum as much as possible because of its tempermentality. There are less-expensive brands that are easier to use than Rustoleum, especially their brush-on enamel - terrible. But I have seen a few cars painted and sanded to a really nice finish with Rustoleum...

I found this miracle paint called Rust Stop at Ace Hardware - one of their brands that's actually worth using. THIS will give you close to show car finish with one coat.
