    Your wrinkle finish came out good, I think the general thinking is to paint the back white because every bit helps when trying to find something after it's all together and you have a problem.

    The spring in my new ones were way too strong. Almost impossible to open the door. I popped it apart and shortened the spring a bit then crimped it back together.

    Well as life teaches sometimes things never go as planned. I gave the console 24 hours to cure and it never did. It might be because that can of paint was really old, so I will be stripping it for try number 2. I don't mention vendors but it was Eastwood product, has anyone else used this style wrinkle paint. I am thinking to go with a different brand in the hopes of not recreating this scenario.

    I hate redoing things but i want it to function properly. Thanks again for all the encouragement and advise/shared information along your journey.

    I think I waited until the wife was out of the house and cooked mine for a couple hours. I did it to "enhance" the wrinkles...but you could try it to force the paint to cure as a last effort before re-stripping?!? It does stink up the house.

    I got my paint from the local auto parts store. I redid mine also. What I do is put in the oven on like 150 or 200 after it sits outside for like 10 to 15 minutes. I put it on one of those cheap throw away sheet pans; the process takes just a few minutes in the oven and you can watch it wrinkle. The gauges are so tight going in the holes that too much paint build up will not let the gauge go in easily. I did put 3 coats on of the wrinkle paint on but had to sand out a couple of edges on the gauge holes.

    So I reached out to the Vendor in an effort to not recreate my issue. They were not helpful because I could not provide the exact order number. It was a gift....I did explain that so and the vendor has thrown up there hands in a kind of who cares attitude. So in response I will choose to spend my money with a different paint supplier!! I am sure I can find the same kind of product soon

    Customer service really has become very negative and time consuming...
    See below....both items were purchased from them and I quote”
    Good afternoon,I would have to be able to locate the original purchase to do anything to be honest. Based on what you described either the primer or paint would have had to have been bad -most likely the paint itself.
    We apologize for the confusion.

    Got my wrinkle paint from O'Reillys as far as I remember. Followed the directions on the can.

    I would say this one is probably going to work, what do you say???
    I am going to wait 48 hours before I throw a little satin clear on top.

    Well the other one looked good also until I tried to handle it. Sometimes you have to go back to move forward.../ thanks for the words of encouragement
