Late night......








My plan is to block the doors, trunk and hood tomorrow after I prime the car....Paint the doors, trunk and hood while the primer dries on the car then block and paint the car...Not sure about the other 100 pieces that came off of it yet, but I'll fit them in somewhere!

Will keep updating as I go along!

Great work. What type of primer and paint are you using? Also, what type of spray gun are you using?

I run a fabrication/restoration business. We have a full PPG DBC2000 base coat mixing station. I spray with Sata guns. I use a 1.5 tip for my sealer gun, a 1.3 tip for my base gun, and a 1.4 tip for my clear gun. My primer gun is a 2.2 tip!

To answer your question about the primer...I use K38 and K201 for the primer. I use mainly DP40 and DP401LF for sealer. I use DCD35 and DFX11 for my clear. The other product that I use a lot of is DT870-898. This is a reducer that lets my chose how fast things dry. DT870 when I need things to dry quickly all the way up to DT898 if I need them to dry slowly. I am refering to drying as time between coats so that I don't get dry spots from overspray! I.E. If I am paint a complete car all together I need to time to spray a full coat of clear before it starts to set up so I will use DT898. If I am just doing jambs or the under side of hoods or trunks I will use DT870!

I am...I like to use it anywhere that there is different product's. Meaning if I sand through the primer and it doesn't really need filler of if I have had to spot prime something. If there is any chance that the car has been painted I will generally spray sealer anyway to make sure I don't have problems. If it's a color I know will not cover well I will use the sealer to get a consistant color before I spray any base!

Looks like it will be a good color in the end. What type of prep do you find you have to do on the underside of the hood/trunk lid?

I wipe them down with wax and grease remover. Scuff them using a scuff pad and Ajax cleanser. I them pressure wash them to make sure that there is no dirt left in there (when there is sufficient time to let them dry over night). I then put them in the booth and paint!




This is were I would suggest spraying sealer!



After one coat of clear



38 parts and I didn't even pull the fenders off....That was a busy weekend! Now time for the second coat of clear....

Must be nice to have such a facility at your disposal. A full respray without removal of all the different panels is expensive enough as it is. To get all that removed and redone is crazy money. Nice work.

I am lucky enough to have a couple of buddies that work in a local autobody shop, one of which is an excellent painter. Without him, I don't think I would have been able to afford all the paintwork I've had done to my JDM parts over the years as I aquired them.

It is nice to have all this my disposal! My business partner and I have worked very hard to get our shop set up to do this work. The paint mixing station is only about 3 months old. We installed the paint booth a little over a year ago.....Now we are going to move shops. Not something that we planned on a year ago, but we have the ability to move out of 5,000 sq. ft. that is seperated in 3 different shop into 13,000 sq. ft. and it will be in the same space and not raise our rent by much!

Hopefully I can get some of it assembled this week!

I can't decide if I like the red stripe! I think I do, but will have to wait to pull it outside with everything on it! I still have to paint the bumpers and filler panel below the headlights....And repaint the right rear door. I was training one of my employee's how to buff and he burnt thru the paint. Only one way to learn, doing it! Hopefully will have it done next week sometime. Just in time to install the Ohlin shocks that I purchased!!!!!

I'm thinking about a red stripe around the wheels! It has Baer brakes on it that have red letters engraved in the calipers. Maybe some redline tires? Ok it's not a late 70's muscle car.

This is really cool! I like the hood scoop too. Congratulations on getting your business going. I'm still in the way early stages of getting a business together. Setting up an orchid nursery isn't easy. I think the red stripe would look sweet if you had black rims with a red lip. If I lived near you, I'd definitely support your business because I want my car restored.

I'm thinking of painting the wheels charcoal or something dark with a red stripe around them!

Running business is not easy and takes a lot of time when your not able to bill out for any work. We have employee's and even had a full time painter up till monday, but had to let him go. Makes for a stressful times. I bet setting up an orchid business is a lot of hard work. I wouldn't do well with that. I like metal....If you cut it off too short just weld it back on. Not exactly that way with plant's!

My car in the UK got a red stripe from the factory





White wheels with red lettering would also work on your car in my opinion.
