  Moving right along. Still masking. The next day off we mask... And Mask.. We tape the windows. Thats first.... The temp was 95 in the booth. Had the fan on all the time in there. Temps dropped only 5 degrees. But, we keep going, and taking water and iced tea brakes.

Comment:
  The front shield... Tape around the rubber first, then the window. Care must be taken not to get the tape on the metal. As close as possible.

Comment:
  The side windows. The post, and jambs are already painted. I will need to lightly sand the jambs after. Overspray will get in the jambs.

Now, we mask out of the norm. NOT S.O.P. But, I suppose, keeping the overspray out where you don't want it to go, is the key, so, anyway you can keep it out, is the priority. I will know if this works well, after the paint is dry enough to remove the masking and the paper. Doing so while wet, will surley mess the paint.

Comment:
  It is taped all around, This should keep the overspray out of the engine compartment.

Comment:
  This method, is NOT SOP. Masking to the floor. Paint can not get under to the black undercoat and paint on the underside.

  Finally, we paint the car!.. After all these years, it's finally painted. But, we still have to sand and sand twice. That will be another video. It was a busy day. getting ready for when the sun is at the right angle, and the temps are good. So, it happened, and only one mistake. But, I think I can fix after the paint has cured... Here's some pictures and the link to the video.

  Let's see.... Well, it's been a few days now. The paint has been in 85+ degree temps, and we should be able to remove the masking now. Normally, the masking should be removed a few hours after painting. But, with the body stretch across I will touch the paint. So, we waited. I sprayed the paint on a bit thick. There was only one place that I need attention. The driver fender, on top. Yea. A sag. Not a run, a sag. So we carefully try to sand out the sag. That is after the paint has cured for a month or so.

  I was going to put more paint on, but I ran out of paint!. I have a quart left, but that is not enough. The layer is heavy, and hopefully, is enough for sanding. With all the dust preperations, there IS some in the paint. Inperfections like that is one of the reasons we sand after painting. The other reason is to make the reflections "In Focus", and brighter, when the wax is applied. When we sand, if I go through to the primer, then we might have to mix another gallon, and paint again. We will see in a month or so.

  It's not a mistake, if I have to paint again, but, if I do, it will be smoother, because we sanded again, and painted again. It takes some time to mix another batch of my custom color. This is a big car, and I underestimated the amount of paint to apply... We will see. I am toying with the idea of painting again anyway, but, I will have to make more time to mix, mask, paint, and drying time. Well, we shall see how this paint images up. That will be the deciding factor to paint again or not.

  Here are some pictures of the masking removal. Pluss a video. Chow!.

Comment:
  Wind shield, rear window. All of it... See I'm touching the fender. If that was tackey paint, the paint job would have to be done all over, and that area re sanded.

Comment:
  The heavy paper worked out good. Keep it mostly out of the jambs, and off the jambs of the doors. These came from AutoZone's backing of the window signs. Although I had to be there to get em.

Comment:
  The aluminum trim held out perfect. The tape came off easy. Been on there for a while, and the buffing before re installing helped the tape not to seeze on.

Comment:
  Same with the side stainless. Came off easy. Although I will need to do some more buffing. Most likely by hand. Or, if I want until next summer, I can tape the paint for a little while. Risky, but I have done that before.

Comment:
  Not bad for a home paint job.... Remember, the paint is not finished. Still imaging sanding to do.

  I tell you this. For all the dirt on the ground, the booth is not on cement, or for that matter there is no cement walkway. Dirt, all around, and mulch allaround. For the amount all around, I am surprised how much I did keep out of the paint. But, there is some, and hopefully, imaging sanding will buff them out.... See ya next time. Chow!.
