these cracks are caused by chemical incompatible. Need to remove all paint down to the fairing and reprime.
I am telling you, it is not worth spending the time to learn unless you are going to do this professionally and like anything else, you will NOT become a pro on a few try. Practice, practice, practice that mean years and lots of money to gain experience.

I sanded down and filled in the cracks. Can't even see them now. There are pics on the first page.

PPG.....ftw. all this talk about paint without me....
IMO sikens is decent for the price. PPG sprays like a dream. I can spray almost show quality with their paint system "most" of the times. depends on weather, humidity, temp of booth, blah blah blah.

but tom's (vfracer-r) got it covered. great advice.

MY ADVICE IS: PAINTING IS THE SIMPLEST PART OF A PAINT JOB. IT'S THE PREP THAT COUNTS THE MOST. THE LESS TIME YOU SPEND ON PREP....THE MORE TIME YOU SPEND AFTER YOU PAINT SANDING AND BUFFING. PREP IT GOOD, AND SPRAY IT SMOOTH.

Not sure about the broken record comment, but I'm curious if y'all ever give HOk a chance? I love their colors, although I can't say I've seen the offerings of the others (besides color-match books for cars)
