    Comp-Arf Repair Painting Question

    Hi - question for someone that's used the Comp-Arf touchup paint to refinish a composite repair... I have my repair done and am looking to repaint the damaged area (nose of Flash turbine model) I have the paint and know you mix it 4 parts of color to 1 part of hardener. My question is what's best to spray this with. Will an airbrush work? Can you thin the paint? Any suggestions or pointers are appreciated. I watched someone else airbrush a small fix on another composite model with this paint one time and he seemed to have trouble getting it to spray right. He had never used this before so maybe there's a different or easier way.... Thanks in advance!!

    RE: Comp-Arf Repair Painting Question

    I have used the Comp ARF paint once. I mixed it 4 to 1 with no reducer and sprayed through a full sized auto gun. It will not work through an airbrush and I doubt you would get good results with even a touch up gun. I would suggest thinning it for use in small equipment but I just don't know what you would thin with. The good news is that the match was excellant and after carefully sanding with wet 1000 grit at the blend it polished out great and was very hard to notice the touch up.
    Of course it's true, I read it on the Internet.

    You'll need a gun with about a 1.4 mm nozzle. You could maybe go down to 1.3 mm.
