So far t-day iv been wetsanding with 400 grit. I think im going to dry sand the car with 220 on the da then wetsand it with 400.

Its coming out straight tho. So far I gotta glaze a few small spots on the bumper and just add a couple coats of primer on the area by the roof and im good so far. The area I bondod is perfect.











It all aughta be sanded by tomorrow. Then I just gotta do the touch ups/prime/scuff and im done with the outside.

Get-er-done

Finally done with the wet-sanding












Now I gotta glaze the pin-holes and scratches that the primer didn't fill. Then spot primer the areas I think need a little more primer make the panel level.

All the areas I bondod dont need no work at all though. I shocked myself this time around.

A little stereo crap I play on putting in the car. If it all fits :machinegun: Ill get it in..






I wonder if you can paint amplifiers?

The drivers side striker panel metal was cracked. The door striker panel was a hole. You could actually see the backing plate that the stud screwed into and everything. I welded everything closed. Grinded it lightly then I kitty-haired / bondod/ glazed the panel till it was hella right.

Here was how it used to sit before.

I used some more Evercoat primer and some rattle can as a guide coat. It was a windy day.. THe guide coat was a pain to spray.

This aughta bee the last time primer is needed on the body. I just wanted to make sure some areas were right.

Shes all masked up

Now im just going to re-scuff-clean-tackrag-spray

Im going to be spraying it a House of Kolor PBC-63 Lake Violet Pearl
Or a Shimrin Kandy Oriental blue / Cobalt blue. It just depends on what the paint store has in stock.

Im really wanting that lake violet pearl. Its going to make the paint stand out with the chrome allot.

I wasn't able to make any type of paint booth setup. Locally they charge like 200 extra on paint then online. It sux but o well. Ima poor boy for a while.

The House of Kolor tech manual said it takes 6-8 quarts to paint small to average sized vehicle. O well. It only took 3 quarts of both paint and clear to paint the car. I got 3 coats of paint and 4 of clear.

So far I think HoK clear great. It holds its gloss unlike the Martin Senour CC-5000 I have been using since I started painting.

Usually the Martin Senour cc-5000 clear would loose gloss as it cured. HOuse Of Kolor clear is worth the extra moola.
