  1. Getting back into painting

    Hot Rod Art
    Used to paint decades ago but wound up with a career in digital art. Now that I'm retired, I'm teaching myself how to paint again. First attempts sure aren't perfect but I think they came out pretty cool.
  2. Old Car, new paint...do I need to remove all paint?

    Body - Exterior
    Do I need to blast or sand off all the old paint? What would be the impact if I only partially sanded and primed? Can I kill the micro rust dots without completely removing everything? I have a "shake and spray primer"(it can be returned); will it be adequate under a 2K or 1K paint? Current...

  7. Factory Paint Question
