His only negative negative comment was it was the same color as the epoxy which of course is only because that is what I had bought.

The 2K is available in gray and black and the epoxy is available in white, gray, red, and black.

Steve has an allergy to isocyanates. I have not asked him to paint my car. I would love it if he would but his health is more important than my car being red. For now, I will be more than satisfied with it being black epoxy and running and driving.

Wow, that sucks to have an allergy like that. I don't know what isocyanates are or are in, but I assume in bc/cc paint ?

I went by Steve's today and dropped off a can of slow reducer. He had already blocked the 2k primer surfacer and shot three wet coats of black epoxy. He pointed out a few places he is not done with but it sure looks good to see the body one color. It is hard to get a good picture in his garage. He moved the car to his booth and it is pretty tight in there.

He is moving on to the doors and deck lid for now. I guess I have some stainless I need to get back to work on, huh?

With the satin black, you'll be the envy of all the young guys that think that's the final result...

The 2k high build primer is urethane which has isocyanates! The Epoxy is the only 2k without out it unless it specifically calls a primer surfacer "isocyanate free" or "none isocyanate" it has isocyanates.

True. That is the reason I was thinking Steve might really like the SPI epoxy primer. Since it has enough build it can be blocked,

John it limits his exposer to the urethane based primers.

When I went by his place yesterday he was telling another friend about it. He seems to really like it.

I was damn impressed with it's filling quality. As long as you don't apply it heavy and it gets all those fisheyes, WOW it gets those easy.

The last time I sprayed SPI it was with my crummy HF gun and I was having fish eyes and I couldn't believe what had happened. At first I thought it was contamination but I had cleaned the crap out of the area and then I became aware of paint covering my hands running down my gloves and back inside my gloves. I then realised there was more paint coming from everywhere all at once and the fan was looking like like a fire hose...

I learned a lot from screwing up, 1. get a good gun. 2. apply a lot less vigorously. 3. Paint sparingly not like you are trying to put out a grass fire.. when you follow the rules things seem to just glide with SPI.

Rip is exactly right. I even warned Steve to not hose the first coat on as it would cause fish eyes. As long as you just put a normal wet coat on there is no issue. I also like to give a good thirty minute flash time between coats. With a 72 hr pot life and 7 day recoat window why not?

Reading these posts reminded me of something I heard in 1986! I had ridden to Sturgis SD motorcycle rally that year! I was on foot working through the crowd on the sidewalk. It was about 8 PM and the streets were packed, the stores were packed,the sidewalks were packed and it was HOT Sticky SD weather. Traffic was barely moving and there was a "RUB" on a new bike revving his engine and being impatient as he can be acting like a dumba??. Suddenly I hear a voice and there was an old timer standing next to me. He goes tisk tisk tisk. The fellow over there gotta learn that "You can rev your motor all ya want to, Just don't be in a hurry". I pondered that comment for a long time. I then realized what the old man was saying. Basically have your fun but be serious about riding and driving!

Don't really know how this fits this thread just "Don't be in a hurry"

I took a gallon of SPI wax and grease remover up to Steve's today. Paul had not met Steve and he road along with me. You all may remember, Paul is my friend who has the 52 Mercury convertible he bought in high school back in the early '70s

Long story short, I had introduced Paul to the SPI epoxy some time ago and now of course Steve is using it. I got a kick out of them discussing the advantages of it. It made me feel good that they both liked it so much after I had encouraged them to try it.

Steve has the quarters down to the last bit of nit-picking. They are really getting there.




He has done the hammer and dolly work on my fenders and doors and started ruffing them in.

I am blessed to have the friends I have in my life.

The doors are roughed in with 3 coats of epoxy ready for final blocking.





The fenders are 80% there but not ready for final blocking. Believe it or not I stuck my finger in the wet epoxy. Of all the dumb amature stunts, I can't believe i did that.
