Howdy from Chicago

Post by trimagnum on May 19th 2009, 5:15 am

It's getting close to painting time for the trike. But first loads of filler and sanding. Planning on using a HVLP spraying system from Harbor Freight after testing it on other thing there seems to be little over spray . The shape of this critter would make it hard to roll and get a decent job . Charcoal Gray with Satin Black accents should look nice . If anyone wants a fun project build one of these it's the first car I've built where most of the material came from Home Depot. When I get to spraying there will be a new entry in the project section.

Looks like a great forum everyone be safe have fun and don't get any paint in your eyes. Oh in the preview the nose is chopped off but it's on there honest.

Thanks for warm welcome guys. I would love to be driving it by the end of summer . A few gallons of Bondo and a bunch of sandpaper should get things going . Take care and when the paint starts flying some pics will be posted Very Happy
