Holy Santa Clause Gonads!!! Looks really great! I've skimmed through you thread, researching the HF HVLP guns again, and last I saw this project was still being painted. Looks really good.

Question, is the floor made out of plywood or was that just a cover of sort? I know I've seen wood floors in similar models. I'm just curious why sheet metal wasn't used if the floor is indeed wood. To make it more period correct? Would you mind if I sent a few questions your way when it comes time to paint and wet sand my project car? I promise to bombard you with questions, as I've bought books and have researched this subject a lot, but it always helps to get feedback and to have questions answered by an experienced person such as yourself.

The floor is fiberglass, as is the rest of the car. I will be glad to answer any questions you have.

Overlap with paint

The paint job on your Hotrod Looks Great.
Since you used the Purple Spray gun can you tell mw what the overlap was you sprayed with ?
I knoticed no tiger stripes at all.
Were you overlapping more than 75% on each pass ?

thanks

Overlap was 50% or a little less. I was surprised at the lack of tiger stripes the PPG product exhibited. A lesser quality product probably would have tiger striped.

That is Amazing Only 50% Wow
Most paints would have tiger striped at 50%
I usually use 75%

And the paint you were shooting if I remember right had a Lot of clear in it...Almost like a candy ??

You did a GREAT Job!!! I think the guy holding the spray gun was GOOD

Two gallons un-reduced DBC 2000, and two gallons DCU2002 un-reduced clear. I have about 3/4 of a gallon un-reduced clear left over, and one gallon reduced DBC left over.

I was going to use PPG newer clears like DC3000, but was advised against that and told to use DCU2002. The owner of Southern Polyurethanes Barry told me that PPG DCU2002 was most like the clear he sells that is so popular. I would have used Barry's clear but I wanted to stick with PPG products. The DCU2002 goes on like glass if the gun is set properly and the air pressure is sufficient. It needs to be cut & buffed within the first couple of weeks of application or it gets as hard as concrete. It is not a production clear as most of PPG's are. Get the spec sheets on PPG clears and read them, most are designed for production shops or to be used in a forced heat drying booth. I cannot say enough good things about 2002, I am by no means a pro painter but I achieved excellent results with it and highly recommend it.

PS It has been my experience that the counter people at the paint jobber will steer you to the wrong product that you need, and actually know very little about their products.

I can second Vince's statement - the owner of my paint store is very good but the help ..... well if you are asking for their real life advice, you best have done your homework first and have the basics of the product
