    Looking Good!

    That paint over spray will get everywhere/well back in my day but perhaps these new high volume low pressure sprayers aren't as bad but as a precaution;

    Make sure that your hair is covered, use tape to make sure your coverall cuffs on your arms and legs are sealed. Also use air to blow your self off before entering the spray booth/maybe the missus could help. You want to eliminate any bits of dust and crap from getting on the finish.

    You might consider a little water on the floor to help keep dust from kicking up. All are just a thought.

    Water on the floor is part of the plan Roy, as is a disposable tyvek jumpsuit purchased for just such an occasion.
    Yes, I will be wearing white after Labor Day!!

    Hehe, but thanks for the tips.
    I used to work at Toyota, in the paint booths so am trying to take every reasonable at home precaution. I look forward to proving these hvlp guns do in fact create less overspray, cause I’m counting on it, hehe.

    I doubt if many have used the 'no white after labor day' for years.

    As always you seemed to have practiced the 6 P's

    Now that was a big safety NO NO when I was working. Then again often ignored.

    Twas common when it came to automotive painting. Even when I was attending Community College to learn the trade. The instructor would hose you off with air before you entered the paint booth.

    I’ll be considering it a great success if all that I get in the paint is the odd speck of dust..

    For those that have done this before what’s the best steps at home, let the paint cure and wet sand before clear to ensure its dust free. Or just lay the clear after 30 minutes on top of the base and deal with any issues after final cure?

    Thanks

    Thanks
    Do not sand ANY base…be it solid or metallic before Clearcoat. If you get some boogers in the base….wait 15 minutes…then lightly sand them out with some 1000 paper…then re - Coat with base color.You don’t have to spray the base paint to a shine….just get it on there,and make sure you have coverage. Buy the looks of things…your going to need a lot more lighting in there too…so you can see what’s going on with the Clearcoat. You are going to have a cloud of overspray too….With whatever gun you use RP ..or HVLP. 15 minutes flash between base coats @70 degrees …needs more time if temp is cooler. I’d wait an hour before applying the clear coat.

    It’s the same kind of plastic they make softener salt bags from, maybe 3-5mil, make it at work so they gave me a large roll for my project. It’s thicker than any drop cloth type plastic sheeting I’ve used in the past.going to drop some on the floor under the car, after I wet it down too, just to help make sure everything is protected
    And regarding the lighting, I do have a couple old metal halides from when we upgraded at work I planned on plugging in come paint time, cause yes, it isn’t very bright in there..
    Appreciate the tips on the paint as well.

    Yes he’s right, if your base is good then get with the clear, most paints today have about 15 minute between, on my bike I got all 4 coats of base and 6 coats of clear on the one day, your biggest issue is as said lighting, and dust. But I think you got it covered. Just remember you can always sand out any bad spots then spray again. Now when that clear is all done you will then sand and polish
