Shine, great suggestion buddy! Wow, definitely the way to go, especially in a make shift paint booth.
Only bummer now is we have craters in the paint after the first color wet-sand.

|shine||it's called "tipping " . painting by brush. but i would never use rustoleum when there are quality urethane's to brush on. most marine paints are well suited for it.|

home painting by hand
This may seem a crude thing to discuss with experienced painters, but recently I saw an article by a fellow that painted an older model Ford Ranger by hand. He mostly used a roller and he primed and painted with Rustoleum paint right off the shelf. He did do a lot of blocking and buffing, but the result he got was very good. Just curious if anyone else had heard of doing it this way. Skyraker

|shine||in a 100k dollar down draft none but someone painting in a garage will get air borne trash in it. peel depends on your gun control .|

I've never heard of such a thing.
What kind of trash are you picking up??...............and peel?
|12-05-2011 08:03 PM|
|shine||each coat you apply will add trash and peel. once covered it is blocked smooth then recoated. only 2 coat of trash or peel to seal with.|

|psychoholica||Wow, very glad I asked! I was planning a few weeks! Im thinking maybe only block the blue on the bottom half of the bus and leaving the white untouched. I'll make the call when how smooth it lays down. Curious on why two as well.|

What is your reason for double painting.............curious?
Seems like extra work.

if your going to buff concept you best get on it within 48 hours.
i block after overnight dry then recoat. give it 24-48 hours and get it buffed.

|Metroman||I think I waited about a week. Yes, it is interesting that colors sand different than white. After finding this out, I also heard it from another person who painted white. If you can spray it with the least amount of orange peel, it would probably look the way it was painted back then. Concept does lay down nice.|

Im trying to get the bus back to as original as possible so staying away from clear for sure. Never thought of 2 then a block.
Interesting on the white drying hard. How long after you shoot do you do a wet sand and buff?

|Metroman||I have found that the PPG Concept whites dry very hard. Sanding the fine scratches out took forever. The last car I painted with white, I cleared it. It was a much easier job to buff out. I didn't have any problem with red or blue. I hope this helps.|

|shine||i use concept for color. i will usually shoot 3-4 coats then block and do 2 nice coats. cuts down on the thanewave and such. depending on color i sometimes clear it.|
