Thought I would give everyone an update again. I have all of the black parts primed now with the exeption of the stearing tower which I need to get welded. I cleand both of my paint guns tonight so if the temps pick up here I will PAINT!!!. I could use some ideas on how you all lay out your work or how you hang it. my method of priming is quite slow. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, Im pretty pumped to lay some color. :)

Good luck with the paint. I hang things from bolt holes wherever possible.

Well it is time for another update on the h16. Finally we have had a few warm enough days to paint. I shot the black on about half of the parts and determind that I did not like the gloss. Napa orderd some flattenig agent and I picked it up this morning. I finished about 90% of the black parts today and I really like the slightly flatter finish. We are on line for several more good days so I hope to get all the painting done!! Knock on wood. I will post some pics soon. :)

h16blackpaint 002.jpg Ok mjodry the waiting is over. :) Here are a few of the painted parts I dident want to bring them all out of the garage. sorry! But I think you all can get an idea of what the finished parts look like. I applied three to four coats of self etching primer and four to five coats of paint. Like I said in the previous post I did not like the gloss so I got a flattening agent mixed at one third the totalamount, paint, reducer, hardener. And this is what I got. Please feel free to be honest about the work, paint,color ex,ex, This is my first and I want to learn!!!!!!!!! I also got the hood and hood scoop primed today along with the front axle and housing. My Dad is coming up saterday to help with some welding so I should be painting the cream color next week. FEELING PURDY GOOD!!!

I really like the way the finish looks in the pics. Is it smooth to the touch or does the flattening agent etch the surface.

Yes it does etch the surface. It does'nt feel like dry spray, it has more body to it but it does have a slight texture to it. I really like the way it looks too, I could put less flattener in it?????
