The second coat of black primer sealer was applied per the HOK tech sheet. I sprayed the door jambs, hood jamb, headlight bucket recesses, rear valance recess and the inside of the fuel filler recess.
After 1 hour of drying time, two coats of Lapis Blue were applied. Lapis Blue has the pearl/metal flake. It goes on in medium coats and is applied very thin. This is not a heavy build paint.
Lapis Blue was followed by the Cobalt Blue Kandy. The application instructions for Kandy are very specific. "Apply 5 to 6 coats to achieve proper color. Start with 3 medium wet coats first, with 75% spray overlap. Finish with 2 to 3 full wet coats with 50% spray pattern overlap." If we don't do it this way we will most likely get streaking. In this picture we just finished the first 3 coats.
3 medium coats of clear were then applied. After the paint dried to the touch I removed the masking. The paint is pretty spectacular if I do say so. Double click the photo for a closer view. It's very nice!
The Portland Swap Meet was last week. Stay tuned for an update on what we found and what we learned.
