    I completed the first block-sanding of all the parts.. found a few pits and filler-edges, fixed them, and then re-primed the parts.





    Re-Primed:



    After the 2nd blocking, and I was happy with the results... all parts were epoxy primed with Omni Black Epoxy Primer:




    This was allowed to dry overnight- After a light watersanding (400G) to remove any nibs- the parts were sprayed with Dupont Chromabase Black Basecoat.





    This was also allowed to dry overnight- and then the parts were taped off and the Red was sprayed:




    I decided to clear the parts first- and then add the Hydro-Dip. I experimented with a valve cover- and decided I need much more practice. The basecoat requires clearcoat within 48 hours- so I will clear everything and Hydro-Dip later. Then re-clear over top the Hydro-Dip.

    Here are the parts trimmed (edges and high spots) Cleared with Red Pearl added. This was only on the edges and reflective surfaces- the wide areas were skipped.



    Then, The entire panels were cleared (2-coats) with Clear only.



    When sufficiently dry (about an hour), I'll take a few pieces outside for pictures under natural light.

    Took the Trunk outside in the sun:



    More updates coming tomorrow... when I can carry the parts outside (without worry)....

    I have painted MANY cars outside in my yard/driveway. It just comes down to time and temperature...
    I like early in the morning just after sun-up. Few bugs, little wind, all day for paint to "cure"... etc
    Wet the driveway to keep the dust down.. and spray away. Bike parts would be easy!

    Here's the first car I ever restored- in my driveway/yard/basement. The epitome of a "backyard paintjob".
