Finally painted the Vette!

Finally got to paint the Vette this week end. My son in law did the graphics and lay out. We used PPG bc/cc solid colors with silver pearl added. Do Not use a masking film called "Frisket Film" on paint!! I picked it up at the paint supply store an although it Does Not say it can be used on paint, I figured if they were selling it there it must be ok. WRONG! We cut out the stars from this and laid them out on the white base caot and sprayed the blue over. It lifted on some of the edges and left behind a sticky glue residue!! Took us several attempts with various products (mostly disasterous) untill "Goo Gone" it worked great but the whole experience put us 3 hrs behind and you have to do your clear coat within 24 hrs or start over. The gun was a problem from the begining and got worse by the time we finished but It came out good with mininmal orange peel. I'll polish that out this week and put one light coat of clear on it and all should be well. The problem gun was a cheepie and now resides in the trash, I'll pick up a good one tommorow. All and all it came out good for a first try, much better than a 50/50 paint job (Best viewed @ 50 feet or 50 mph). Pictures in gallery..
