It's coming together!
Quick question (or 2) Karsten - what type of gun are you using?
HVLP/detail/rattle can?
Are you doing all your spray outside - or just the door jambs?

I hope to be moving to paint in a few weeks (at least the interior) - so want to plan ahead - while the cage is being built this week.

Cheers - Jim

For primer I use a Harbor Freight cheap HVLP gun, probably 20$ on sale..... Sometimes when I'm lazy I use it for base/clear as well so I only have to clean one gun and not too.... The Ttops for example I sprayed with the cheap gun ....

For everything I want to look nice I use a DeVilbiss Finishline gun (hvlp) for base/clear . I don't shoot primer thru the "good" gun

Inside/outside: inside is more dust, outside are bugs .... Both not ideal ... When I paint something big inside I mask the walls and wet the floor .....

I shot my car inside with the door open, did wet the floor, and hung plastic.....

found out it was a waste of time, as had to reshoot, and got lazy....either way the paint looks like shit, and it's not from dust, either.....

I hate to paint....even latex on my walls....

Yes, painting can be a real pain .... Lol ....

Here's the door painted: front of the door needed to match the lighter blue of the fender, the rear part needed to match the darker blue of the quarter .... Plus there are more metal flakes on the fender than on the quarter ... When I did the front flares over a year ago I got a little crazy with the flakes so it wouldn't match the door anymore ....

Anyway .... This is what I call a nice color match:

How the hell did you get to the top hinge bolts? They look hidden up under the dash.

not all that bad actually, a 4" extension on a 1/2" drive ratchet and a 9/16" socket .... That's to loosen the the bolts , during fitting and adjusting the door I just used a 9/16" deep socket and my 18V impact driver .... No sweat .....
