Thanks, Earling! I'm all set with the acetone sprayer for the exhaust mold and layup. I'll report back on how it works.

400 is a good start. When I painted my little trailer I went up to 2000 (wet, with a touch of soap in it) after every coat of paint and clear. The result with a super smooth finish and that is what you need to make a good plug and mold. Let me brag...I mean show you what I mean.

From this

To this. With spray cans.

I have thought about using this trailer to make a form to create a longer version of this to tow behind my pickup when going camping. I like the wheels tucks under the body.
That little trailer is awesome, 100! Very nice job! It's kind of amazing what quality you can get with rattle can paint.

I hear ya about getting an A1 finish for a plug which brings us to my next post. Read below.
