PICS-- MORE PROGRESS
#1
Really on a roll... I'm hoping to shoot the entire car in epoxy within the next week or so..I decided to prep a bunch of other parts that are going to need to be epoxy primed too...This way we can spray them at the same time..So today I disassembled the 4 spd pedal bracket & pedal assemblys..We media blasted that..the frt bumper mount...Gas pedal assembly & finished up the frt valance...I also fitted the headlamp boxes....

Now I'm really confused. I thought you paint fenders, doors, valance. trunk lid, seperately off the car to assure coverage. Huh Somebody give me a engine to work on.

Your Correct...I just need a base of epoxy on all the OUTER skins WHILE everything is in perfect alignment so I can do the filler work on the OUTER skins...The reason being that sometimes you have to carry your filler work through to the adjacent panel to get perfect lines gaps etc. Once thats done..I will take it apart ..epoxy prime the entire part off the car...Then 2k off the car..Other wise its an extra step of take it apart put it together again....

More and more I am seeing the need for a small blast cabinet at home. Parts look really good!

Hi,
Here you can hire a blast cabinet, you just pay per hour for everything (abrasive,gritt / protection / etc., 42Euro/hr.).
You start with a clean cabinet and ends with a clean one, that's the rule.
Remember it is tiring and dirty work ... ENJOY

Your paint job with epoxy finish; who can I go through that can coordinate such an effort on my 72 mustang, gone through 2 paint jobs since 2003/ feel like good old boys kind of job/only had vehicle out only a couple days since last paint job 2010 and paint falling off, cracks in seams....need find someone in my area Westmoreland County near mustang.com ground zero, these under the table jobs for @ 5K not right and can not find reasonable painter that warrants work w/receipt attached to work, reasonable, priced? 5K sounds unreasonably high but this, "we want cash for job", not right but do not want to deal this way anymore.
