Getting ready for single stage

Getting ready to spray my truck with a single stage gloss black from Eastwood in the next few days or so. Iíve been back and forth on satin black from John Deere to tractor supply to Rust-Oleum. I finally decided with all the work Iíve put in to spend a little more and go gloss with Eastwood. At least Iíll have something I can polish and wax. Itís gonna be a 20 footer, as Iíve never paInted or done bodywork before. Iíve been learning along the way. Itís been fun, tiresome and at times, aggravating lol 😂. Anyways, Iím looking forward to getting a product out there.

Re: Getting ready for single stage

Those are the best ones in the end.

For no more reason is that it is yours.

I painted a 72 blazer once and it was one of the first ones I did top to bottom on my own.

It turned out awesome with and I used acrylic enamel paint. All my buddies were impressed and most said, "Let's paint my truck now".

Except for one guy who does the work for a living and he is really good. Show car type good, really good. He walked up and asked if I put the shiny side down on purpose.

It pissed me off for a second but in that second I said, "F-you, it is mine".

He has never critiqued my work since. LOL

Re: Getting ready for single stage

Unless the wife goes into labor in the next 24 hours, I’m gonna spray in the morning. I’m gonna go at it around 0500 before it gets hot and the bugs are out. I’ve done a rehearsal of how I’m gonna spray and I’m gonna do one full rehearsal with the wife helping tonight. (No worries, I have a mask for both of us) if it turns out bad it’ll be because I stink, not because I didn’t practice.

Re: Getting ready for single stage

I predict that your wife goes into labour at 05:30...just after you get started! That's how painting goes sometimes.

Re: Getting ready for single stage

Odds are you are creating another truck junkie with a pregnant wife working on the truck. Just saying.

Not getting all sappy but save that picture. Someday it will be worth millions.

And agreed with the other post, labor will be induced by the first coat.....LOL

Best of luck on the truck and the new baby.

Go for it!.. that is, if you have not already. Nothing to fear for you, but I'd keep your wife and unborn kid away from the paint booth. That little one could do without the fumes!
