I rethought the design of the head and foot pieces of my light. I think it looks cleaner.
Thanks, man! I'll give it a go with 400. Any input on the fish eyes? Should scuffing it up fix the problem?
Yes it will, but 220 removes to much paint, and leaves scratches in the remaining paint finish. The fish eyes are caused by the imperfections in the surface your painting. By sanding between coats you're effectively flattening the surface of the painted finish, level to the lowest fish eye, then building the flatness back up with each additional coat of paint. When I paint my GCs, I use 4 coats of semi gloss black, no fish eyes.
And I get rid of the seam between the outside pedestal caps and the leg panels.
