A Big Bad Blue would look cool, so would a yellow/orange

I do have the blue, but I'm saving it for a 69' camaro coming up. Does anyone have a good old camaro kit? Z28

Yellow and orange would be sick!!

Cheers,

Here's a pic of the primer used, the green that was just sprayed for the first dust coat.

It's Tamiya TS-20

And then my new stuff that came today, novus 2 polish, and Mr. Mark Softer

Will have pics of the second dust coat soon.

Green looks good so far but I'm having some orange peel so I may strip it and prime with tamiya primer. But will see if I can fix it first, I need one more wet coat. So if I can fix the peel and what not I'll spray over it again with the green, if not I will be stripping it. It may have reacted to the krylon primer.

Touched the hood cuz I thought it was dry, now I have yet another thumb print :/

Thanks man the color I used definitely looks sweet, besides the minor mishaps with paint, on different paint.

Cheers,

Here's the green. Was able to get a good paint job after all I've struggled with so far.

And even with this you can see on the left body side near bottom parts I have like blob/fish eye going on. Orange peel is gone.

With the hood from an angle, you can see where the marks are, from when I thought the paint was dry. Although I should be able to remove that with polish/waxing.

If I can get the left bottom side cleared out, I may shoot a couple coats of clear over this. But I think what I'll most likely do is just let the paint cure till Monday and proceed with wet sanding, polishing, and waxing. Hoping I can use that as an advantage to fix the miss haps with this car haha.

Green amongst with yellow, orange, and a few others are the easiest to get orange peel.

Whhoooooo well anyways here's some pics. I'll probably do some interior and chassis as I wait.

Byron, sharp color but I think the bottom of the driver side is too much paint. I think with sanding and waxing you may be able to fix.  I mean this kindly, watch about using certain words like you used in the last post. Its against the rules friend. I mean no harm and just trying to help...

They were blobs of paint but they started showing up after I sprayed. Probably from the wind.

I agree man and thanks for the compliment on the color. As for the problems in the paint I'm just gonna go with it. It's one of those classic muscle car that the owner is gonna have to have some touch ups on the body lol.

Btw I edited the other post ;)

Cheers.

Here's after being polished with the novus 2

I tried sanding some of the blob like I said but it wasn't coming out without removing paint. And I dont feel like waiting to get more green lol

So here's what she looks like now. Got the engine in for pics and I think the chassis will be black
