Got her primed today. I just need to let it cure for a couple days then I will block sand with 150grit dry paper and re-prime.

Re: My New N/A Del Sol Project

Update:

Block sanded ready for final primer and final sand, then H2O base-coat/clear-coat system.



Trying to be have it ready in two weeks so I can start my testing while the air temps are still around the upper 80's.

Re: My New N/A Del Sol Project

Why haven't you done the hood?

Also, is this last pic when you've got the guide-coat on top of the primer?

The guide-coat is always my favotire part!! It's like treasure hunting!

The hood is new and in factory e-coat. I'll do a quick scuff and seal on it. I actually got one shipped with no damage.

Last pic is primer with guide coat. "Treasure hunt" too funny Hopefully I don't find to many treasures.

Re: My New N/A Del Sol Project

Main body is now painted. One step closer to getting this thing back on the road and continue testing.

First coat of base-coat color over dark grey sealer.


Third coat of base-coat and ready for clear.




Clear coated.
