Fresh Paint - Thanks to all - Pics

Thanks for the support folks!

I feel like I did a great job on the paint work. I'd give it a 10 for my first full paint job, but maybe it only gets a 7 or 8 on a show scale. I'm very happy with the exception of a couple runs and a few bugs that are now a permanent part.

Thanks again for being there for "paint newbie me".

Sick467: EXCELLENT!!!!

Painting is something that requires a lot of work but there is nothing like the feeling you get when you tell people you did it yourself and they give you the "double-take-jaw-drop-look-at-car-back-at-you-big-eyed look". You will recognize it immediately when you see it!

Good job and be sure to post more pictures to encourage others on the fence of wanting to do it themselves that it can be done and done well.

Good Luck and BE Safe

Thanks for the compliments.

The lack of a paint booth worried me the most, but I was determined to paint it myself and also determined to get it done last weekend before cooler temps came in. I just spent half of the day Sunday before painting cleaning out the old shop. It's the one in the pics. Most painters would cringe in the amout of dust/dirt hanging from the rafters. I got lucky, it was a calm day so nothing stirred too much. Don't get me wrong - there's some dust in the paint.

Ride On,
Noel

congrats Sick, you've passed a major milestone in your restoration and it looks great. I can't wait until I'm at that point, but I've got a ways to go. Hopefully next summer I'm laying down the cancer juices.

Sick, nice job, I know the feeling. What kind of paint gun did you use? Size of your compressor?

Greg, My gun is an old Devilbis syphon feed gun, probably 12 years old. One of those "if you want this old gun, you can have it" and my compressor is a hoss. It has a 5 hp elctric motor driving a vintage unit sitting on top of an 80 gallon tank. More than I need for painting, but real handy for sandblasting.

Ride On,
Noel
