Finally got around to redoing S2. I think the issue I had the first time was the fact that I used a cheap acrylic clear. After check with I diy auto center I ordered the very first color Honda YR526M and a urethane clear. It's the morning so there is due on the car. I haven't touched it since paint and clear yesterday.

Looks nice, has a satin look to it. Needs much more clear coat... Hood needs a coat too, doesn't look like it matches...

I did the exact same thing on an old 911 15 years ago (when the were cheap...sigh). Volkswagen rattle can silver was a 100% match. But regardless of how many rattle cans I used, I just couldn't get the clear "thick" enough...

Good luck,

Bo

Did a bit of hand buffing last night. I forgot how tough urethane is.

Think I found a good color match for Guards Red. In Japan, it's red.

Looks like the roof panel is the worst. Im using a scraper and the original paint looks pretty strong and good underneath. Any suggestions?

Just a Suggestion... from someone that has been doing this for about 13 Years!

Tape off everything you don't want sand blasted... used (rubberized HD TAPE $10 (Yellow 2") / $4 (Yellow 1")... sand blast all the flaking red paint off ... it should come off in layers... (Fine Grain Sand Medium) should not hurt the rubber on the car actually it will help clean it! Very easy and fast if u sand blast at a 45 Deg. angle. Then sand entire body down to the 1st coat of original paint/primer... with 360 grit wet/dry... wet preferable... fix any body damage if present... put on two light coats of gray laq. primer (Heavy Wet) within 30 min. of the 1st coat of primer. Sand down with wet 500 / 600 grit sand paper (do not go through the (2) primer coats any where)... then use Best Name Brand Epoxy Paint any Color u want with matching hardener and thinner! Follow instructions on the application for the Epoxy Paint to the letter... do not deviate
Hum. under 50%... (75-80 Degs F) was the best for me (1 Gal. of paint should give u 3 full coats!!!) Here a few pic's of my success... just a suggestion! Good Luck with that scraper... u will do more damage with that than the sand blast!
Ron...

Looks good RRRacing 1970. Thanks for the considered reply. Actually the paint to the roof section was so poorly done it literally flaked off with even the slightest touch. I got lazy a thought the bits of primer I left wouldn't hurt. Boy was I wrong. The rest of the body looks ok but the roof will need to be stripped again.

In my last years with GE Aircraft Engine Group... I spent 2.5 years off and on training in the Toyota "Shingijutsu" Group - GPS - IE: TPS "Toyota Production Group"... out of 30 of us in training I was the only one they allowed into Toyota City in their Paint Production Area... The USA doesn't have a clue what they do... and how they do it! I trained under Yoshiki-Iwata and he was trained by MR. Ohno himself. Good luck on your project!
Ron....

I live in Tokyo so I doubt our paths may have crossed. The only Ohno I know worked at Porsche Japan. Chief mechanic.
