Great day

Last week was one of those weeks you just want to forget as everything went wrong.

Today was great. The Yearone Painter and I shot the black base on the Mustang thats going to Sema this year and had the car based out about 8:00 this morning. We let the base set till 1:00 and shot the clear with the temp 87 and humidity 79%.

It is slick!
There are 4 little specks of trash in the job and one gant that landed in last coat, so I cleared him so he would stop in his tracks.
One run about 3/4" wide in the quarter panel scoop that Fouse designed and made (it was his angles that screwed me up.)

Anyways, no big deal we have an average of 12 mils clear with about a 1 mil
variance through out the car.

He is going to let set till Friday and wet sand with 400, 1000, 1500 than 4000 mirka DA pad and buff.
Next week when I'm back in town were doing the Camaro Convertible that will also be at show.
Hopefully, luck will hold out and no major screw ups.
You got to love a day like this!

Cool! I agree, it's definately a good feeling when you put the gun down and everything went as well as planned. What clear were you spraying if you don't mind me askin? How many coats? Another thing that's got me curious is the 400 grit starting point for the colorsanding, I've used 600 and 800 but 400 sounds a little rough? I don't mean to be a nosey PITA just trying to pick up a few tips and get your opinions . Here's to more good days Bob

Nice Barry. I wish I could say the same about mine this past weekend. Is anyone suprised really that yours came out so well? And a SEMA car to boot. Congrats!

Speaking of good days, I talked to a buddy of mine today that is a painter. A few weeks ago he picked up an Iwata after I was bragging how the gun worked. Well he loves the gun and told me today that he actually sprayed for two weeks with no dirt specs in his jobs, he said he couldn't believe it and was telling the other guys in the shop that the gun worked so well he doesn't even get any dirt in the paint with it! He had two good weeks with no buffing. Of course the gun had nothing to do with it but he was on a roll .

************************************************
I used a Sata RP 1.4 with the universal clear.
The car has 4 wet coats of clear I was pushing to the limits as far as runs
there were a few panels we would set back and take bet if it would run in 2-3 minutes but lucked out.

Usually 600 is great but even thought this car is orange peel free there would still be some urethane peel that is there we cannot notice or see with the naked eye, so 400 will make it slicker and better gloss at certain angles.

Sure your day was good, but think of how the day was for that poor little gnat. Was coming in for a free buzz and you do something like that to him. You big meanie!!!
Glad to hear all went well for you. Its a good feeling putting a lot of time in a vehicle and knowing all went well painting, and the battle is just about done.

well its definatly bright.. if i had to classify it i would definatly say its a red-orange color.. i sprayed it over white sealer.. im more then likely using it on my own project (69' 911). i have the spi color chart the flame red i believe is the next brightest but is definatly red not orange..there might be a way to make the viper red more red then orange i like the orange look thats why i chose it. im sure barry may have some input.. maybe more coats.. different color sealer i know reds are semi-transparent. where in Nj are you located?

Beemdubya, I'm lookind for a red like the Audi red or Mercedes used couple of years ago. I'm not a big fan of orange-red. I live around Red Bank area. I wish I can see that color personaly to make the right decision.

Good for you Barry.
You know that old saying- Murphy's Law:
"Sooner or later something is bound to go right"
I wish I could say the same thing- I'm starting tomorrow
on my son's hood (for the third time) that he is putting
graphics on. We're really experimenting, using HOK pearls,
candies and marbelizer. I hope the third time is a charm!

Hmm have you seen the Acura NSX red? that thing sure doesn't look orange to me, granted I've only seen in various times in a magazine..... I guess that doesn't count huh, but hey how often do you see a NSX on the road anyway.

just a though.
