Shooting panels individually


I'm curious were to be very consistant in mixing paint/reducer...could you paint each panel individually rather than shooting the entire rig at once?

Reason behind this--
I've got the entire rig torn apart at the moment, doing body work piece by piece. Many of the panels are stripped down to bare metal. After I finish the body work, I don't want to put them outside on the truck to rust right? But if I painted them, I could put them outside without any negative repercussions.


I've seen some books where the panels are shot invididually...drawbacks?

You can do that, but you can't guarentee equal coverage or colour. Paint them separately, but all at the same time and in the same room (booth). That way would be better.

Most restorations are done this way.

Only draw back is like Ponch said if you have a color that does not hide real good.

Other drawbacks is any color with a fair amount of metallic or Pearl in it can be a major problem. For one air pressure can lighten or darken and for heavy pearl colors humidity can also change the color as with more or less reducer.

So if its a solid color such as yellow, black, red, white its no big deal.

Paint them apart, but at the same time, and in the same booth or garage. If they are painted on different days no matter how hard you try conditions will be different and it will affect the results.
