Funny thing. I did these two together. Could not decide on a colour. So as I had this hanging around from a project I did awhile back, I used it.

Both bodies where cleaned at the same time. then prepped with 2000 W&D then Astonish, then rinsed in cold water and left to dry.













Funny how it comes out the can. Both were sprayed together. Side by side on a stand.

One worked, the other did not.

Nice colour ...maybe this is a chance for a second colour on the Porche?

Very nice color.
Could it be the shape that's causing the trouble? Roof and bonnet are fairly flat on the Porsche, perhaps the paint didn't "flow" as wel as on the other. The sides of the Porsche seem OK, that's why I wondered if it's not a result of pure gravity ???

Paint is Halfords Ford Electric Orange. Requires 3 -4 coats over Halfords White Primer. Finish with Clear Lacquer.
Now, 3 coats was fine. But as the body was white, and I did not want to many layers of paint. (1 primer, 3 orange, 2 Lacquer, 6 coats of paint?). Would lose to much detail and add weight. Body unpainted 9g painted 11g
Interesting idea. Body, flat

I do not want to change the colour. Just put this down as a learning curve for the next 911. And I have never had any success at removing paint from models.
I'll sleep on it and take a good look in the morning.

Cheers
Andy

PS, the paint was first used on This

If your paint was from a spray can and you have already used some on another project then maybe the can is getting empty and the last dregs are causing the problem.
I had this problem recently with a semi/matt finish instead of gloss.

surprise, shock, amaze, astound


OR....

Oven, cooker cleaner. Fine paste, with a small amount of grit
www.astonishcleaners.com or on the Multi coloured cost shop.
Get a soft tooth brush, wet it, put some Astonish on TB, work into item you want to prep for painting. It's finer than 2000 W&D, gives a good key for paint, does not damage any detailing.

Also degreases. It's Astonishing stuff. But give item a good wash with cold/warm water after.
