Base/clear is about as simple a spraying primer, just read and follow the directions on the tech sheets. Typically they want you to wait 24hrs before applying high build primer over epoxy.
Spray a coat of reduced epoxy over the high build primer before you apply base. For dark charcoal I'd use black epoxy sealer (reduced primer) as a base.

It's easy.....

Nice job! I would be carefull using newspaper in masking though. Paint tends to bleed thru it and onto what you want to protect.

No, it's not the actual spraying part that worries me, it's getting crap in the paint while I'm doing it. I swept and hosed the carports down before I bagged them up but there was still some crap in there. Plus, the company I work for is moving us all to a new compound (supposedly) in March next year and all they have there for cars is a basic sun shade, which would be even harder to seal and keep clean. Besides, doing a colour change and having to do all inside the door jambs etc is a PITA...

Snapped a couple more out in the sun. I'm happy with the filled join line on the bumpers...

Damn! That's coming along nice. When you do the top coats, put water down on top of the concrette to control the dust kicking up from the floor.

Thanks guys. So far I've been using PPG. Actually I don't think the shop I've been using even sell anything else.

As for painting it, It depends on whether I can get to top coat stage while I'm living on this compound. If the company move us to the new compound, the car ports are little more than a piece of shade cloth on four poles and would be far harder to "seal".

I agree, it certainly would! I'll try and get her to agree to some more pics in the near future...
