Interesting way of removing the pinstripes. I have an 1984 GMC truck I need to do this to. Thank you for the tip.

Good luck with your Mustang project coreyd!

I am going to start working on my 1975 Vega Hachback with 231 Buick V6 - 4 speed project soon. The motor was installed about 15 years ago but still runs good. I am converting the front of the car to an earlier model year front end. - (1971-1973) style Vega front end. I recently joined this forum as I was looking for a cheap way to paint the car.
Make sure to include more pics as you progress, I am really impressed with other results I have seen so far, and would like to watch as you progress in your project. Let us know how it's going!

1st coat on hood

Post by coreyd on December 21st 2007, 11:40 pm

Just put the first coat on the hood, just testin out the color. I really think im gonna like it. It has a lot of bubbles in it but i guess that is normal from the mineral spirits thinning it so much. I mixed 2:1 (paint to thinner)
i may mix 3:1 on the 3rd and fourth. Have to see haw the 2nd turns out. I will post pics as soon as i get done.

Are you dry rolling? That will pop most of the bubbles. The rest will pop while it dries.

When you dry rolled, did you switch the roller out or just squeez the same one. i changed the mixture to 3:1 and that signifigantly changed the dry time, a lot longer. I am going to switch back to 2:1 after this wetsanding.

Just wanted to say... Looking good thumbs up thumbs up . Looks like you got this rolling thing down pat. I think the grey looks much better than the white paint jobs I have seen. Now do the rest of the car and post pictures so we can all drool.

I wasnt happy with the turn out of the 3rd and 4th coat, so i wet sanded until the paint was completly smothed out which took quite a bit of paint off. But i switched back to 2:1 on the 5th and sixth coat, waiting for the sixth to dry now.

I know its a PIA, but using a MAX of 1:1, 50/50 paint to mineral spirits will get the paint to lay flat and take care of a lot of the orange peel, etc. Getting basic, complete coverage doing this takes longer -- 3 to 4 coats versus 1 to 2. But it pays to be patient with this type of work.

Afterwards you'll be going: "Dang! I painted my ride with rollers and it looks like I spent a big wad of cash having a good body/paint shop do the work." Very Happy

Thanks for the info guys. I will go try 1:1 for these next two coats. I still dont have complete coverage anyway cause the paint underneath is white. But if 1:1 will keep the sanding down then i wont have to take off as much material between coats
