LOL! When I was typing that it was bringing back memories of the days when I was racing my stang, I could almost smell the turbo blue and rubber and hear my exhaust and the shiftlight was on at 5800RPM for my next powershift! THEM WAS THE DAYS!!!!!!!

Along with waiting for the finishing pics of the stang I will also be waiting for some track pics and times thumbs up

Standing down wind on the starting line in 1960 with nitro fumes and burnt rubber particles in your face, wheel stands, so much smoke you couldn't see the race lol. The glory days. I saw the run that set the world's record for fastest e.t. at that time 8.14 seconds. Of course that was 50 years ago. Now days it seems, VWs are going that fast.

Its not getting done fast enough says my boy...lol

The first of the paint went on some of the car today, I will try to get some pics up later.

Our first try we mixed at 1-to-1 it seems to thin, it did lay down real flat but was real easy to get runs on what seems like a dry roller.

it takes a bit before you get the hang of it and get no runs. Thats where a dry roller comes in very handy...

I have a question for you guys that have done this already, we dry block sanded with 220, and from what I have learned this is the standard for sprayed on work,
but with the really thin coat we put on you can see a lot of small sanding scratch's , is that the norm and will they cover as we add more coats, or should we wet block it all down with 320 or 400 and start over?

I used 400, and 600 when it got closer to being finished. Some scratches will cover - if any are deep you may want to do something before rolling more

What I need to know is what final grade of paper do you use before the first coat.?

I understand the
2 coats 400
2 coats 600
2 coats 800
2 coats 1000
2 coats 1500

Hey T

I'm pretty sure that after all the body work and before the first coat of paint that you roll on you go over the whole thing with 400 grit to make sure it's all level.

That's how I've understood it to be.

That looks like a fun father/son project! I made the mistake of mentioning to my 5 year old son that I wanted to paint the truck and now he wants to help! I'm trying to figure out what I can let him do. =P

400 grit is fine after primer and before paint.

5 is young to follow directions, but some kids pick up on thing's better than others.

it's really hard to mess up wet sanding so show him how to do that and see if he gets it.

Good luck with your project, and we always like to see pic's..

Primer so smooth it shines...lol



I think the paint was a little on the thick side, seems to be getting a lot of cover for one coat
