Home Depot sells that brand here in Oregon in 5 hp and 7.5 hp models. The CFM sticker on the tank is impressive. Do you like it? which hp do you have ?

Thanks Mark.

I have the 7.5 HP model and I love it. It keeps up well with all my tools and spray guns. Well worth the money.

Home Depot has it priced here @ $ 1699 which is a chunk of change. I was hoping you liked it, It looks impressive and sounds like it does a great job. If I remember right it's a single phase 220v, 175 psi, 2 stage, 90 gallon, and says 23.5 SCFM @ 90 psi. I'm saving up for that monster !. Sorry to take your thread off topic. Mark

Mo' progress

I just shot my 911 with SPI black Epoxy today, this is the first time using an SPI product. I love the way this material handles. Great coverage and great spraying characteristics. I used a 1.5 tip in my DeVilbiss Finishline gun. The SPI layed out smooth. The shine on the balck is great for showing you the areas that need more hammer and dolly or filler.

I sanded the bare metal with 80-grit on my DA. I washed with DX 330 and then final washed with SPI water based wax and grease. I like the feel and performance of this product too.

I can't wait to get to the High Build 2K and Universal Clear.

Evill, the high build primer is thicker than anything you will ever use... I must reduce it 20% to make it atomize correctly in my 2.0 primer gun... dont be suprised if you need to do the same.. I believe Barry sprays it thru a 2.2 and I think somewhat reduced as well

Well, made a little more progress. The filler work is now done on both flare seams. I used Dura Glass on them . I like using Dura Glass over any welded seams, it is harder than regular filler and I have never had it shrink or leave ghost lines of the welds later on.

I shot the Slick Sand on yesterday. I am really happy with how straight the flares are "before" any blocking. 3 of my buddies stppoed by and all agreed that you'd never know those flares weren't from the factory. But that is the whole point of doing great work, isn't it?

Here are 2 pic's in the Slick Sand.

Mo' Progress:

Blocked out the Slick Sand with 80 grit on my long boards, then guide coated and blocked with 180 grit. These quaters are really nice and straight.I shot 2 coats of SPI 2K Hi Build primer on yesterday. I love the way it sprayed and laid out. It sands great and fills really well too.

Ed,
She is looking sweet. The SPI products seem to be working well too. Keep after it and keep us posted on the progress.

While I was home today, celebrating my 40th birthday, I made some brackets for an additional lift strut bracket for my engine lid. Since I am using a factory Carrera Tail, I need the additonal strut to help hold the lid open.

I formed these out of left over Porsche sheet metal. Made both in less than an hour. I think they rock

I have rebuilt and reassembled the suspension, front and rear. I detailed and serviced the engine and reinstalled it into the body.

Last nigth I made the mounting brackets to fit the later style dashboard and defroster vent int he body. Came out good and fits very nicely.

Today I plan on doing the final blocking of the main body shell and doors. This week I will fab and run my new airlines and filters in the shop. Did a long search on here and decided that 3/4-in copper was the way to go.

Also installed a new fan between my 2 shops. Now I can blow heated air from one shop to the other,depending which one I'm painting in. I made the fan brackets reversible, so all I have to do it flip it over to change the direction of flow. This fan is 1600 cfm. The exhaust fans in the shops are 1200 cfm. This allows me to maintain positive pressure even when both fans are running. A quick test suggests the they evacuate the spray mist pretty quickly.

During the week, a good sweep out, blow out and wash down the shop to get it good and clean. I plan to paint it over my christmas vacation. I have the whole week off. Stay Tuned!!

Update

Okay, it has been awhile, so here is the progress as of this morning.

I was off this week between Christams and New Years, so I was able to get the body painted. I blocked out the 2K with 180 and then 320 with 3M dry guide coat. I sealed with SPI epoxy, based with PPG DBC Porsche Signal Orange and then SPI Universal Clear. Blocked out the clear with 320 and shot 2 more coats today. The depth and shine of the SPI is incredible. I am really pleased.

Happy New Year.

Ed
