Car is painted!

Thanks to everyone that helped me lay out my paintbooth and ventilation. After many days of wetsanding and prep work I finnaly did it. I sprayed color 04/16/04 in the afternoon. I must say I was really scared but it ended up being the easiest part of the whole project! I had a little water in the lines toward the end so I have a little finish work to do. But overall I would call it an above average job for my first try. The color is 1973 porsche gulf Blue.

The Orange lettering will go on later in the week. I need the front fenders on the car to put the lettering on. As they go from wheel well to wheel well. The paint is a single stage Acrylic enamel.

If you can wait a month it would give the paint time to gas out and you won't get bubbles under your letters. Seen it happen and it is painful.

The car has been "slightly" modified to keep up with 1997 911's. No Fuchs for me. I have something a little different in mind. Stay tuned.
I have taken styling cues from cars of the era. Not an RS or an R clone but a true German HotRod.

Looks great. Glad the painting went well. Everything Iv'e read and everyone I talked to said that the prep work was 90% of the job. I picked up the primer Saturday (ppg K36) for bc/cc. We're in a cold/windy/rainy weather pattern so i'm going to wait a day or two to paint.
