Looking good! I like the old Jeep in the background as well.
All of the paint gods must have been smiling on me this morning, because I was able to get two coats of color on this morning, with no drips, no runs,...Gave myself an A+ on this one!
And I'm ready for clear coat in the AM!
More soon, Todd.
Got 'er done this morning:
Sweet, nice work A-B!
Masking off,...ready for the wheels that I am still refinishing. Gotta get my butt in gear! Slacker,...
I truly thank you both for the great complements! They provide me with encouragement. This is only my third automotive paint job, and the 'best-done', so far.
I'm going to blame the success on my new HVLP gun, to complement my year-old set of an HTE HVLP gun, and 'mini-gun'.
First step, Argent silver:
Got all five done today!
My weird masking technique is working perfectly!
Cool, what's holding the paper down on the rubber?
Pretty cool, huh?!
I bought a removable, paint-on, masking (couple of bucks from an online hobby supply site) and painted a thin stripe, circumferentially, just outside of the edge of the rim and let it dry overnight. Then I ran a thin bead of Elmer's glue on top of that, misted some shaped newspaper pieces with water, and stuck them down to the glue.
When I'm done, I expect the whole mess to peel right up off the rubber in one shot (white glue sticks nicely to the water-based masking 'paint'). I tested the mask at first, and found that you actually have to be careful not to pull it up by accident,...and it comes up cleanly.
