[




should I lose the chrome molding? They are in great shape, just wondering if the car would look better without them.

Depends on how rough the paint was before you primed. If your looking to get it strait as possible, and have the time/ money, use a long block with something kind of course, like 120/180. block all the flat panels until you start to burn through on the high spots. If it is taking it all off, and not leaving anything untouched, give it a quick scuff with 220, reprime, and now you have strait car, and all your trying to do is remove the orange peel from the primer. Use a block with something around 220, and work up your grits after that. What you end up with depends on what you are going to sray the car with. Base clear, with a high metallic, I would consider going to 600. Single stage, solid color, you can stop at 400. Maybe 320.

Sound like a lot more work that what it is, and the car will look deadly.


BTW, keep the chrome.

thx for the info I want a metallic finish with a clear. So i will plan on stopping on at 600 grit. I put 2 very heavy coats of urathane primer on top of the full coat of epoxy primer. So seems my weekend is comming to a close I'm gonna see if i can't get the primer knocked down. I have alot of flexable boards for sanding.

I hope this topic isn't boring anyone.

thanks again

Terry

On the contrary. I may do my 68 vert myself.
Are you doing all painting in the garage? A true DIY deal?
What gun are you using?
I was considering trying a down and dirty job with my siphon feed gun and maybe have my body guy do the actual paint coats. Dunno.

Looks like some good elbow grease going on in that garage, and I like how you have your priorities straight. You fix and paint the car before you do the walls, if they were painted, they would just get dust all over them and look dirty. Now, our women may not see our point of view, but it won't be the first or last time.
I will be watching this thread, so please keep us posted as you go.
Good job so far.

well the sanding goes on lol seems like it never end, no matter how thorugh i try be bee seems like i end up missing something. i figured the best thing to do was buy another gallon of primer.

Phil this is the gun i'm using, i really don't know if it is a good one but its the one i got and its free.

this is the filler primer after sanding with 120 for close to 2 days and it still needs more sanding. i keep making laps around the car rather then in it. every trip around i find more thing to do. i'm getting excited to see it finished. my daughter who is gonna be 2 years old picked the color for me today will try to post the sample color tomorrow
