Thanks for the tips, Tim. I was using a gun I got from HBT but replaced it with a set from Auto Body Toolmart I use the 1.7 for primer and 1.4 for color.

Careful wait too long and you're going to wish you painted it a different color altogether. funny how your brain migrates through what color you admire.

Funny I am going through this phenomenon right now. I have waited so long I am now leaning toward taking the color back to original.

Nice work Glenn keep it going. You are an inspiration. One of these days I may actually get up and go back out to the garage and start working on my car again.

Thanks guys. I'm starting to make progress again. I almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm also already thinking about the next project and what color it will be. Right know I'm leaning toward recreating my first car the way I would have had I had the finances, tools and skills I have now. It would be a hot rod late 60's, early 70's VW bug in my favorite Porsche color...... Mexico Blue. Most of my updates are in my thread in the technical section. (link in my signature)

Just a quick update.

Yes, I am still working on it and no, I really haven't finished yet.

I am just about done painting for the 2nd, 3rd or 4th time depending on which part we are talking about. I think I am finally getting the hang of it. And I have accepted several imperfections (screw ups) that I may address later. I'm still getting some orange peel is some places but I've been able to lay down enough even coats without causing runs that I should be able to sand it out without getting too thin.

Note to anyone contemplating a first DIY paint job..... Don't learn with Glasiurit 22 line, unless you like to throw away money. My next project will use a reasonable priced paint so my continued education will be less costly.

So, I've just got to shoot the front valance, mirrors and headlight rings. Then I'll turn my paint booth back into a garage and start on the headliner install.

Thanks Heliolps! I was going to point you to my other thread, but Wachuko beat me to it.

Might be late to the game on this one but if you’re still working on your car and want to look at the selection of spray guns etc. we have available, we just revamped our Accessories area so you might find something useful HERE. Good luck!

FYI - it is back on the road again. Still have some touch up to do on the paint. But I am happy with the results and grateful for everyone here who provided advice and encouragement.

I want to thank DaddyGlenn for taking the time to post his rust repair. This thread (and sailchief's thread) were immensely valuable to me.

I too had the unfortunate repair of rusty bumper shock support.


After careful reading and planning I leaped in and began the repair - I remember marking, taping and then coming back and reading through the threads to see if I missed anything.. Cutting into a 30K Porsche front end is not something for the faint of heart..



In the end, however it was well worth it and the rust is gone. Plus I now have a badge of honor reserved for a few that dare to try their hand at cutting, welding, sanding - a skill that takes years to master. (Thank heavens for stone chip to cover any imperfections)





My recommendation / request - MAKE THIS THREAD A STICKY!

Glad it was helpful. I could not have done it either without the tremendous amount of advice and encouragement from many on the board. In fact, I wouldn't have even attempted it without Pelican.
