That is coat one, 50% MS 50% Tremclad gloss white. I mixed it in a plastic cup that has a top, so that after this coat dries I can pour the rest into the tray and quickly do coat 2. One of these cups looks like enough to do 2 coats which is perfect. It looks like the 2 cans of paint that I bought will be way too much so looks like I won't have to buy paint for the Celica!

Coat 2 is on the fender, but conditions are still less than ideal. There are still way too many bugs in the middle of the day and there are fibres of what looks like dog fur (I don't have a dog) finding their way onto the paint. I don't think where I live is very ideal for this, but I'll keep plugging away at it, it can't look worse than what's on it now. When the time comes to do the Celica I'll make sure to have some indoor space available to do the car.

Coat 3 on the fender, I wet sanded after the first and the paint seemed too soft. I'll give it a full day to dry and then I'll try to wet sand again. This week I should get to the cab of the truck if the weather holds up.

I don't remember if this is coat 6 or 7. The rest of the truck will be closer to done with this many coats as the fender was my learning tool

Nice job. What grit are you wet sanding between coats with?

I had to sell the truck. I wound up having to move across the country on pretty short notice so I quickly parted it out and sent the rest to the wreckers (the truck needed way too much work to pass an inspection in Nova Scotia, plus I already had a car to drive and one to ship).
