And I have the whole car in grey urethane DuPont chromabase primer right now, I may put a white base down, and sand it smooth beforr spraying the color. Haven't quite decided yet.

I believe it is just two stage and you'll want a uniform base primer coat.  
If you can shoot single stage then base coat / clear coat is a breeze.


Yeah base clear is actually all I've sprayed. Ive just heard that the three stage paints, which is usually a base a midcoat and a tint, are almost as difficult as spraying candies.

Still looks nice though Anthony!   Love that blue!

 

Thanks! it really bothered me that the paint came out so perfect and that one window had glue bombs all over it.  the blue really pops in the sunlight!

Nice job so far, the wheels look soooo much better! Check your fan clutch placement, though. You put it over the torsional damper, but it goes on the fan. I look forward to seeing more.  Do you have a color scheme thought out yet?


Yeah I just noticed I goofed... the way I glue things its not coming off! Im thinking about doing a metallic maroon/cherry color with a metallic charcoal gray. The line would follow the body line on the side.

That's not a fan clutch anymore...it's a low-tech "over-rev" limiter now.   ;)
 
just kidding, it sounds like the instructions weren't very clear on where the fan clutch gets attached.


Yes it most certainly is. Gotta keep those dang teenagers from abusing it!
