paint a gauge pod Pillar
Ok, I need a little help here, I think I know the problem, just wanna make sure. Now I got the Double Pod from Ecelica.com store, and it's fiberglass already primed, now I dremeled the holes to make the gauges fit, and all is well, I painted the pillar black cause I could find the blue to make the other one. Everything is cool...now I go to home depot and find a blue that looks pretty close, so I go home and paint it, and then clear coat it. Then while trying to install it I noticed the water Temp cord (that metal one) had dug grooves into the paint on the pillar, and now my fingers are moving the paint. Now I let it dry, so it's not the problem...what I think it is, is that I didn't sand the black paint before painting the blue and clear, does this sound like the solution, or am I missing something to painting this bitch, cause I am pissed, I had the whole damn car apart for this little project and everything was going smoothly. Well a little serious help would be most appericated.
