Illustration for article titled Anyone have model car building experience?

My friend and I have been building our respective cars over the past few weeks, and a few days ago, we got around to spraying the body and chassis. We used Semi-gloss black for the chassis, which came out great, but when we painted the bodies, we ran into trouble. We both got extremely bad orange-peeling, and we can't seem to figure out why. We washed the bodies before painting and did all the necessary steps; the only thing I can think of is that we painted outside when it was a little chilly. We both used Testors spray cans, mine was gloss white and my friend's was gloss black. Does anyone with more experience than us know what the problem could be?
