Thumbs down Crypt's Bodywork and Paint thread.

So finally after get my steering and suspension in working order im able to start repairing the paint and body.

Iv decided to do it piece by piece which is about the only way i will ever get it done before it gets to bad to even repair even if i had a shit ton of money which i don't.

These three spots are the worst on the whole car with only a few tiny areas on the doors to fill and the bumpers to hand sand im looking at about ah month until im done.







Today i started on the trunk lid going from 80 grit to 180 and then 320 but i ran out of daylight so tomorrow the edges and the front are all i have left to sand then i can get the primer laid down and sanded ready for paint on Monday.

After working on this for most of the day and really taking my time i have it smooth as silk.



I know that rattle can paint isn't exactly the greatest way to go but if done right i should get a pretty decent look out of it for a few years and the rusty areas will be gone which is really my main concern for now.



More to come tomorrow.

remember to spray in sweeping motions, releasing the button at the end of each sweep, and pressing it at the start of the next.

Garage
interested to see if you can get an even coat. I was thinking or rattle canning the lower parts of my drivers side doors, due to the forming rust mess.

Ok this is after 5 coats of the black acrylic enamel and as you can see there are lines that really look worse in the pic then they really are but they are inevitable when using rattle can paint so once its completely dry it will get wet sanded with 1000 grit to level everything out then cleared.

I've manage to get great results with rattle can. but I would go with a better clear coat, if I were you. Rattle can paint never harden enough, to keep dirt from being imbedded in it.

So after screwing up the paint with the wrong cleaner iv decided to sand it back down and repaint using a HVLP gun and the Duplicolor Paint Shop jet black base coat and clear coat.

Hopefully i can get the trunk lid done tomorrow so i can see how well the paint lays down.

Base coat done but no clear coat pics yet thanks to the rain starting right as i laid the 1st coat which brought up the humidity and fogged it over

So for now im done with this until later in the year when its cooler and the humidity is not as high.

Thanks man!!

The 1st coat of clear went on last night but the humidity caused it to cloud up on me so i will most likely need to sand the clear back off and redo it before going any farther.

Other then the few more high spots i found wet sanding the clear the other day that's about it.

Im going to have to sand the clear back down to level it all out and repaint the bad areas and re clear it later in the year when the humidity drops down to a better level.

I suggest you wait to paint yours as well to save yourself the aggravation iv experienced so far.

From what iv gathered it needs to be less than 50 percent to keep the clear from clouding and blotching.
