I have finally finished the last of the fabrication work I need to do before paint. I have spent the last week building the RSR style strut braces, front and rear, for my car. I am pretty happy with the result, so hopefully I can finish up the final prep of the engine bay, interior and the froot for so I can seam seal and repaint the stone guard.

Great stuff Jeff Thumb

Hey guys. After my first spray booth video, I had some thoughts and I have come up with some improvements to the booth, so that it will be safer and also should work better to give me a better paint finish (I hope).

Well I have had a bit more progress this week. I have painted the inside of the wheel arches and inside the bumpers and front guards. I decided to do them in black because, although I think cars look great with the body colour under the wheel arches, I know that I won't be cleaning under there too regularly. The car will get driven, so I know they would just end up looking messy. Black keeps it neat and simple.
That brings me to the final body colour. If you watch the video, I am running a competition to guess the colour. For the first person to guess the correct colour and post it in the comments on the video, I will do a sketch similar to the one I did of my car, of the car of their choice and post it to them where ever they are in the world.

Here is the vid.

Well the colour is on! I have painted the internal parts of the car, and overall I am pretty happy. I did have a couple of spots where the paint reacted a bit. That was on both seat rails and a small area on the parcel shelf. It is possibly from a bit of contamination that I didn't clean perfectly, or from some issues under the previous paint which is probably more likely. Either way, I will be touching up those bits. Anyway here is the video.

Great stuff Jeff. Loved the sketch too. I wouldn't mind one of those myself. (I've got a 993 targa with targa split rims).

Great stuff Jeff and awesome colour choice. Can't wait to see the car in the flesh when completed.
Will you take it to any events when finished?

Great videos Jeff - I think I was one of your first 50 subscribers! Although every time I watch you make me feel guilty about not tackling more myself on my car...

Love the colour too!

Haha. Sorry I made my living as an artist for 13 years. I have since retired from that side of things.

I am amazed how many new subscribers I get every day. You should get out there and give it a go. At least for me, there is no better satisfaction than to know you did it yourself.

Jeff.

Might be a bit OTT in dreary old Blighty but in the sunshine Orange is good, how about a touch of turquoise somewhere to bling it up a bit ... looking forward to see it finished. Keith

Another great pair of vids there mate!

Which spray gun are you using? Devilbiss GT?

Also, do you regularly watch any youtube painters like TheGunMan? He's great for picking up tips on painting. Just wondering if you have any others you watch? I'm about to attempt to spray my little boxster and need all the help I can get!!

I am just using a copy of an Iwata gun. I have used them for years and I always found them to be pretty good. I made my living as an Airbrush Artist for 13 years, specifically working on cars and bikes. Doing everything from murals of Dragons, etc, through to graphics like flames in with marble candy apples, to freehand pinstriping. Although I am not a spray painter as such, as I didn't generally do the prep work or the clear coat on the cars. I did do it every now and then, and I was around it all every day. I am far from an expert, but I have a reasonable knowledge, so that is what I have been going from. I definitely wouldn't look at how I am doing my car as a "how to". Just this is how I am doing it. I am continually getting feed back, telling me that I am doing this wrong or that wrong (which I probably am), but I still think I will get a pretty good finish the way I am doing it.

Ahhh, that explains why you've been so good at it so quickly! It also hints that there may be a little customisation coming with the old paint job??

I saw an Austin Yellow BMW M4 yesterday which had a very thin electric blue front splitter under the bumper and matching electric blue wing mirrors. It looked absolutely ace!

A little accent colour will be making an appearance when I do my paint job, but I dont think I'll go as far as Candy Apple Red flames... Wink

I am keeping the rest of the painting under wraps at the moment, but I can confirm I will be doing something. Maybe a big dragon on the bonnet.....

Thought I would just have a quick look and ended up watching all 17 parts today. Surprised

worship Makes me feel quite inadequate but has at least inspired me to go and top-up the oil in my car. (well you've got to start somewhere Embarassed )

Great choice with orange btw.

Keep up the good work jeff. Now subscribed. Thumb
