mr4speed A guy that can really cut and buff can always salvage a bad paint job. But no matter how good a painter you are you cant salvage a great paintjob over bad bodywork.

Thanks so much for all the information on this site and all of the opinions from all. I feel like im doing in as little as 6 months more than i ever imaging and I also look at it as Im not in a rush so I dont mind some. Extra cutting and buffing... I just cant wait to really get to apply what ive learned on my 1964 Cadillac and my future project 1940 chevy coupe. Im currently working on a 67 el camino just to sell after I paint but after all this work I have a feeling im going to fall in love with it

cyclopsblown34 This site and the SPI site seem to have the better advice that I've found on the internet as far as genuine painting information. The gun adjusting tips have made a huge difference for me as have tips from several of you pro's on here. I've been knocking out about ten or twelve overalls per year the last couple years and between practice and reading on here, have gotten much better. now I'm trying to slow down and just do restorations and build my fiberglass 34 Chevy 3 window bodies.

shine dont beat yourself up over spraying. one of my old painters who was really a piss poor painter can lay it slick as glass now. he works at a macco and shoots all day long. i only shoot a couple of cars a year now so my gun hand aint what it use to be but i cut and buff everything anyway. if i get lazy in the booth i just have to work a little harder on the buffer .

I fall into that category. Thanks to the advice from members on this interweb site, I've managed to get my painting ability to the point of using less material and color sanding starting with 1500 grit or at worst 1200 grit.

Shine, I've probably made the most mistakes but am nowhere near the level of you and several others on here. I'm a slow learner.

cyclopsblown34 That's the same way I learn, when I learned, I didn't have the benefit of this forum. I made several of the same mistake in just lesser degrees each successive time til I figured out what I was doing wrong.

67Elcamino Thanks guys, I did shoot some test panels yesterday and wow what a huge difference.. The gun actually seems to shoot pretty well.

I always seem to learn the most when I make a dumb simple mistake and look for advice... Thank You

cyclopsblown34 Most any HVLP or RP gun has the adjustment at the base or back of the gun for air pressure. I agree with DBM, you're ready to spray a bit more now go enjoy this hobby.
