Paint pics......

I put the paint booth back up! :)
I was gonna buy an ez up thing and make it into a small booth..... but after thinking and pricing....I just decided to put mine up. I have various projects on for this summer... Up now is some super tin.
I had this paint on hand and is about 4 years old....and needed lots or thinner. I should have put more but I was getting nervous about how much I already put in. The orange peel is from being on the thicker side..... :cry: not to bad....but I'm a little disappointed....oh well. Live and learn

Ok...so as it dried the final finish got a little smoother. So I'm happy now. :P
Did a little assembly today..... very little. I thought I took a picture of the installed headlights? Oh well... trust me..

Next metal into the booth is 1650. It's taken longer than expected as always. Did some last minute welds tonight. The hydraulic handle had some cracking going on.....hard to believe...idk. I was thinking I was going to weld from the front then grind it down flush....then it dawned on me...weld the back dummy....lol

I guess the heat caught me off guard.....primer was drying too fast so I got some good over spray "stubble". Well....I was going to sand this coat anyway so not big deal....I just hope I don't need to redo primer.

Joe..Yesterday was warm and kinda muggy but not too bad.... for primer...lol. I should have used a different reducer and it would have been better. Today I quickly wet sanded everything....in the rain and hung back up. I used HOT water for my rinse as this helped quick drying. I did sand through in a couple spots....but not much. The Rust-Oleum top coat is very forgiving.
Todd.... the booth is so sweet. I'm near horses.... and is really a must with the flys. If u read up top....I didn't want to set this one up....but so glad I did. If u click on the hood pic....u can see the primer dust I had to sand off.

Trying to get all the white done while it's out on the bench......so I'm moving on to the rims. I forgotten how horrible rims are to sand. Some of the deep chips I will putty. Back will get blasted at the joint. Had some help this evening....till the misqitos chased us in. Brutal this year

Not dismounting the tires? That’s cheating!

:lol: Joe......the only way I get things done is by cheating! My whole life is one big cheat. The tires are original and if I tried to dismount.....they would come off in small pieces. Good thing they have tubes in. :beer:

I used the small sandblaster to get into the nooks and crannies....then quickly did some wet sanding. Just hitting the bad spots mostly.

Ok Joe! I did all this just cause you called me out.
Actually I had one all masked up... almost..and noticed the valve stem was cracked. SON OF A BLEEP! So...I just dismounted. I really think these are factory original tires from 77. I don't know when they switched over to this style? Hope to paint tomorrow.

You kidding me....if I lived close to you I would move! :x
Painted rims this morning. It sure was hot....but wasn't about to wait as they were all ready. Turned out nicer than I expected. These rims from 1977 sure are crude, I can almost see every bend or brake line to make them round. I never saw that before...idk. I was little upset that I mixed up about half gun too much. I knew I was going heavy because I didn't want to run out....oh well. I was thinking real fast what else I could paint white....like snowblower parts..or..super parts......but nothing else was cleaned up and ready.

I get side tracked very easy...and it's raining outside for the last week it seems.
The hour meter on the 1650 was unreadable! REALLY! I could not tell what was up or down. The lens was very "yellow" and fogged. So.... In about 1 hr and some house hold supplies....it looks close to new. Probably about 1/2 hr to remove lens. Then...Wash. Dremel with toothpaste couple times. Then Dremel with cleaner wax. Wash and reinstall.
Is it against the law to turn back the clock :oops:
