Paint!



Start with 2 part epoxy primer




Apply red color coats




Finish with several coats of clear.

That's it.



Now for more endless wet-sanding and polishing, then the long laborious and expensive process of reassembly.

I love this hobby.
Below is the red, white and blue family photo for your viewing pleasure.

Project 35 - Paint goes on...


After weeks of sanding and priming and wet-sanding and priming and fixing little issues, we're finally able to put paint on. We did not paint the body. We'll do that next weekend. This weekend we managed to paint the bumpers, the doors, the hood and the underside of the decklid. We sealed the parts with a white epoxy primer. The paint is PPG base and clear. We applied three to five coats of color and the same number of clear coats. We only embedded one bug in the bumper. It'll buff out.

Primed and guide coated. 320 grit wet sanding is next. Then 600 wet. Then paint.

After a couple of months of wet sanding, we're finally getting some progress.




Should be able to prime it for a final time next weekend.

Progress was made. All the plastic work was done on three corners. The fourth corner still needs work. The Pantera is getting close. It's taped up for another coat of what should be it's final partial coat of primer. The next time will be for real. The 911 still needs a few weeks of work. It's getting closer though.

So I went to the shop today. I had planned on spending all week down there. I didn't make it until today. Even so, it was quite the productive day. I sanded off the magic marker line and we welded on the flares. We also ground them down. They need to be wirewheeled but other than that, they're ready for plastic.
