Painting it ourselves

After much sanding and body work it is time to paint!
  • 2K Epoxy Primer (2 coats)
  • 2K Hi Build Primer (3 coats)

We shot the black epoxy and the gray high build outdoors in the backyard without a booth because we will be sanding before we Bascoat/Clearcoat.

  Did the shoot over 2 days. First shoot was all the parts we had removed. Car was driven into the back and prepped for the second shoot. Had some issues with the regulator at the gun not flowing enough air and causing orange peel but that was resolved by removing it.
