Still going...
 
Did a bunch of filler work yesterday. Gonna finish filler, spot shoot the epoxy sealer, shoot the high build, block the high build and then shoot epoxy sealer again...
 
I was hoping to put the car back together and drive by end of day Monday but my motorcycle battery was flat lined... should of keep it charging the last year. New one will be here Tuesday.
 


I also bought a new gun... The HF one was a POS. Grabbed a DeVilbiss Finishline 4. It's pretty sweet and has 1.3, 1.5 and 1.8mm tips. I can't wait to use it.

Awesome job on the body work, it's got to be super exciting to be shooting color. Now that you've had the Finish Line paint gun for a while how do you like it? Are you using to spray the color as well as the primer?


People are better defined by their hobbies than their occupation.

Maybe the 1.8 for high build. Hope you had a 2.0 gun though

It sprays nice. I used the owner of the paint booths gun tonight though.

Finished at 12:30am. Tomorrow (today) I'll shoot the body and exterior of panels...
