But before we apply primer there is a lot of work that needs to be done first. This includes masking, wiping down the car and building a paint booth to protect the floor and everything in the garage from over spray. This pre-painting ritual is an all day ordeal.
But now it's done and the car is looking super sweet. Check out the masking of the hood. I am getting better.
I didn't do too bad masking the rear window either.
I found out there's a drawback to using the plastic sheeting. Paint doesn't adhere to the plastic so when you come back to a previously painted area the spray gun disturbs the plastic which sends bits of dried paint airborne. I think I'll just use masking paper in the future.
Check this out. The body lines are gorgeous. You'd never know those wheel wells had been cut out.
Now we let the car sit for a good week or more to let it dry. After that we will do some light sanding (no guide coat) followed by scuffing with a Scotch Brite pad. More on that later. In the mean time I think we will start working on the hood.
