I don't have deep pockets, but I use my parent's detached garage and my Dad's tools. I just pay for the materials to do all the work - paint, body filler, sandpaper, primer, reducer, paper towels, etc.krzysiopl wrote:I need my car painted dude...where you do all your work on ur hooptie? Unless...you got deep pockets and you never mentioned that to me, lol.
Last night I was hoping it would rain - and it did!
When you paint a car, you want some moisture in the air and you also want it to be a little bit cooler than normal. This does a few things: first, it keeps dust particles out of the air (well, at least more than usual, especially in an old dusty garage like mine) and second, it helps the paint adhere to the surface you're painting onto. As I mentioned previously, the 95°+ days we were having the past few weeks would not have been optimal for painting. At any rate, this morning it was about 77° out and the Cabrio is red again!
I'm stoked on how awesome it came out - it's super shiny even before any type of wetsanding/buffing.
Now it's time to take a break from this and let the paint dry for about 12+ hours.
