Well I got that '68 Dart for Christmas, I haven't done much yet.......


My plans are to paint it a really glossy black and make it into a drag car. I will be using the 426 HEMI and 4 speed tranny. Also, I have reshaped the rear wheelwells.

I do notice how bad the paint is on the chassis. I was painting in 30 degree weather and I don't think I shook the can long enough........

Before painting in cold weather...

1. Take a small saucepan and fill it with about a cup of water.
2. Place the paint can in the pan and put it on the stove on about medium heat.
3. DO NOT boil the water, just warm it up.
4. When the can is just too warm to the touch, it's warmed up right. Grip it with some paper towels wrapped around it.
5. Shake as usual and apply paint.

This is a good practice for any weather, as it helps pressurize the can, allowing you get more of the paint out of the can, and it applies a smoother, glossier finish.

Also, if possible, don't paint outdoors-outdoors. Use an old box as a makeshift paint-booth and paint in your cellar, an enclosed porch, or something like that. The box is also important if you paint outside because it'll help keep dust and such off the paint and prevent overspray from hitting surrounding property.

I've heard of that trick before. I store my paint in my bedroom which has a temperature of arounf 65 degrees Fahrenheit. I paint it outside real quick, and bring it in the house. I've even painted my '69 Super Bee in 30 degree weather and still got a nice finish.

a muscle car isn't a muscle car until it's LOUD!

(paint-wise)

anyways, some updates on the dart.

my first attempt at airbrushing a full body turned out well.. that is until the unfortunate happened.

Ya see, if you get the 68 dart kit, the rear wheel wells have scoring so that you can know where to cut them out to fit the slicks. I wanted to go with a vinyl top, so i traded the body out for one of the Mr. Norm's 68 dodge dart that had the vinyl top on it - but after i painted the body, i THEN realize that i forgot to cut out the rear wheel wells. Long story short, it's getting stripped to the plastic and re-done correctly. and yes, it'll be the loud hot magenta color.

the best news, i have figured out a good paint/thinner ratio for this paint job.

I will get the body work completed and done, and car painted by the end of this weekend, then it's on to final assembly.
