Hi Jack,

I've read all the posts and followed since then. It is a thing of Beauty for sure !!

I do have a question, it looks like from the pictures posted that you paint right there in the shop where you work on the car, don't you get lots of over-spray on the tools, and the whole shop, what about dust from the body work in the paint when your working in the same space?

I've not painted a car yet, but I'm learning all I can so when I'm ready I'll be able to give it a go, not a show car but a daily driver when it's done.

Newbie asking the obvious I'm sure, but hopefully I can learn something from your great skills and maybe someone else can benefit too.

TX
Mr fixit
Chris

Chris, I did have all this masked with plastic sheeting when I painted. I pulled it off before I took the picture. The gun I use for primer has a 2.5 tip. I call it the fire hose, it will flow thick paint at a high rate without much overspray. You can't do this with finish paint or clear but since the primer will be block sanded next, a little orange peel makes no difference.
When I'm ready for finish paint, every panel that bolts on will be removed and taken to a friend's shop and painted in his booth. The rear deck and quarters will be painted in the garage where it is now. When I do that, I'll clean and bag the whole area where the car is.

HI Jack,

I appreciate the personal response. Your shop did look too clean to have the painting done in place without protection, that's why I had to ask.

It makes sense about finish painting all that you can off the car. I do like the look of that primer though, it looks real solid and probably is great as to how it flows, and sanding out for the finish work is probably a bit easier with a good product as well..
Again, nice work and a great project to follow, it's been an inspiration for me to keep looking forward on my project, so thanks !

TX

I had a visitor today. Ray "Picasso" Williams has been touring the country with some friends. Being from California, there's nothing to do there during lockdown, so they hit the road. They were in the Cleveland area so they stopped in for a brief visit and to check out the car. For those that don't know; Ray did all the computer graphics to design this car with me. The renderings that are in this thread are his work.

Looking really good. Did he enjoy the visit and seeing his design in reality?! Better tell him to start on the next design and rendering as you are are on the short downhill of finishing up this project!👍🏻
