spots in primer
Posted by 1940fORD on Saturday, July 27, 2019 11:25 AM

Sprayed flat black as a primer after washing body and fenders. Spots in paint. Suggestions as to why and solutions. Tried to upload pic, but didn't work. 

Thank You Daniel

You cannot upload a picture directly from your computer.  You will need a photohosting site like IMGUR or Fotki or one of many others out there.  Do a search for one and select the site that'll work best for you.

You didn't describe what the spots looked like.  My best guess would be some sort of contamination on the surface.  How long did you allow the rinse water to dry?  I usually let the parts dry for a day before I start painting.

I let it dry at least a day and used water bought for drinking as our water has a salt treatment unit to remove iron. 

I have posted a picture on a photo hosting site, but still having trouble uploading

To post a picture from a photohosting site, click on the BbCode and copy it.  Go to your posting here on the forum and click paste and the code will appear.  Click Submit Your Reply and your picture should appear.

At this point, I would guess that there is some sort of contamination on your model which could have come from your fingers or from something touching the model.

Daniel, it appears that you are copying the wrong code.  On the upper right hand side of the picture you want to copy is an arrow.  Click on the arrow and a menu will appear.  Click on Get Share Links and then on BBCode (Forums) and it will copy the code into memory.  Go to your posting and paste the code into your reply.  Click on Submit Your Reply and the picture should appear.

MrMike, it appears IMGUR has removed it's BBCode link and now only offers a blockcode link for webpages.

My workaround is to right-click the image and choose 'Copy Image Location' (firefox feature) and use the toolbar 'Insert Image' button here on Scale Auto

That's interesting!  I use IMGUR for my photohosting and I have all functions available to me as I have described them.  At this point, I have done all I can to help.  Maybe someone else can try.
