steps to do a tutone paint job?

I came across a tutone paint scheme with a third color dividing them as a 1/4" wide pinstripe that I would like to try when I am ready to paint.Say it is red on top, white on lower, seperated by a black squiggly line down the side of the body.To do this in bc/cc,could you shoot black where needed, mask it with 1/4" fineline to establish your pinstripe, then shoot your white on the lower portion?Then mask the white off and shoot the red.Would it be better to mask above the fineline abit when doing the white on the lower so there is less build up and easier to see the line when masking off for the red ?How or what would you do with the door jams?Will 1/4" fineline make crisp edges on both upper and lower sides when layed down in tighter curves?If this will work, it is more work, but would probably come out better than me trying to hand paint a pinstripe between the two colors.

I like the stripe first approach..when you put the 1/4 inch stripe down first it helps break the project into managable fields..Then depending on the colors mabe the lighter color next etc.
Rule of thumb is to put the color you see the least on first like the stripe and mask out from there

Guess you did that with an airbrush milo?
I was thinking the same thing.
Just curious as to IF there would be a color issue at the line with the black though with the white?
Suppose you could take a scotch pad and clean it up along the line over the tape.

Glad I'm on the right track.I've got the same concerns about color transfer of the black thru the white.I was not planning on using an airbrush for the black line, just shooting a wide stripe, then masking it off.Would scuffing it down even going to help the white over black problem?

That was not from an airbrush, thats a big ole trailer so the pattern may look small although it is from a regular gun with the fan adjustment set to spot. A path the size of a tennis ball with blue tape making the line.

Theres was no problem with the white black issue..

PPG's DBU,, use good stuff man , no probs

Put down a healthy bit of black base...
let that set good...
put down tape...
shoot next color..
etc...

Like this one except on a car...

Thanks again Milo.I am going to be using PPG's good stuff.Price per gallon may be more than omni, but if it covers better,--- less spraying---, should be easier for an amatuer. If you don't know exactly where your black line will be masked off.I mean you will have both sides the same,what do you do in the door jams for your color changes.Paint them first with the doors off, then make sure your fineline on the black matches the line on the jamb?Also would you suggest using DBI on the jambs firewall, underhood,under decklid ,etc?It says it doesn't need cleared. Jim.

I use the DBU for these kind of tape on fresh base type projects. It uses a reactive DRR reducer that cures tight & quick and resists tape affects to it. Like a epoxy base kinda. It's a forgiving base that sands easy if you have a problem and even fills like a mini primer/sealer that sands within minutes of spraying..

It DOES need CLEAR COAT after all your color ...






I'm thinking thats a typo where you have DBI...

Not a typo.On PPG's web site, they show both a DBU/DBI and aDBU/DIU combination.The I version is for underhood, jamb areas, etc. and says it doesn't need cleared.Maybe easier to apply,but adding one more iron to the fire.Probably better to stick with the DBU all the way thru.What kind of time frame do you have to work in ?Average time before laying down the tape on fresh base,pulling it off,and getting clear on it? Thanks again, Jim.

I would use the same through out...
It'll give you some practice under the hood and jambs as you work your way...
8 hours or overnight between taping on it.
