My niece has asked me to help her with her high school science project: a baloon air propelled car. The car will be made out of copper pipe and wood.
This is a good opportunity to teach her how to paint. (She's pretty keen on this project , almost as much as me
) We want to give it a killer shiny red paint job. I've got all I need to shoot automotive paint. (etching primer, grey primer).
-How should we prep the wood to accept automotive paint? I'm worried the paint might sink.
-Also, will etching primer stick to copper?
-If yes, should we mask off the wood from overspray before the etch and grey primer?
Any advice is greatly appreciated. We're starting "the build" this Saturday.
