Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

rollin on a new paint scheme...Black-White:

this what is should become (thanks to Motornut for photoshopping):


and now for where I am am right now:







I thinned the Rust-Oleum about 20%. In the flat pieces it was fine. On the vertical parts it started running pretty fast. How can I fix that? less or more thinner?

budget and time.

this can be done in front of my door. and spraying will mean missing our car for days.

Its our daily, we drive about 10.000-15.000 miles a year with it.

and budget. Rust-Oleum is twice the price over here from you guys, but still, this will cost me/us about 200-250,-

and I dont even want to know what spraying the car will cost...I am guessing in the 2.000,-..................

oh,okay!

well, spray cans are hideously expensive over here. They are about 15,- a piece...

and if you mean spray gun and air compressor...well, dont have one and dont have a space to do it in...

I thought I give this a try....dont need to be a show car..just a nice new coat of paint..

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

looks good,thats gona help keep it cooler

a little red strip down one side and a blue on the other
good place for a flag!

less thinner is thicker

i had a guy mention to look into a "Exterior High Gloss Enamel Laquer finnish"
is there such a thing?
i think that was the name "as a thinning agent",would help the shine?

thanks john, but that is delusion. it is not covering all the way. the finish though is pretty nice. I will probably need to put at least two more coats on. too bad some hair and bugs landed on it last nite.

I will probably do the last coat inside a garage of a friend of mine.

the sun stays on our car until late in the afternoon, so I can prep the car during the day, but have to wait till like 19.00h before I can paint...hmmm...

did you sand the paint between paint jobs?

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

sanded just the bugs
and a few rough spots
but i painted during the day in the noon sun.....seemed better drying less bugs
but i do remember having the contrasting image of my Canada car hood "burned" into my eyes for a while after

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

I did the hood today and front sidepanels.
I started with paint without thinner, but it resulted in orangepealskin immediately. went back inside and thinned by 10%. result was better but still you can see the orangepeelskin.

So I get the best results when thinned about 20%, but then the paint start to run and produce drops very fast.

anybody got some tips for me? John?

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

i hate the runs,thats why i went 100% paint
I am going to try that 20% when i get two more coats and a bit of sanding
and then i have 4 coats @100 % to sand from
i was wondering do we loose shine with thinning?
i can see how the red is coming threw a bit but it looks good

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

they say that thinning will loose some shine, but make the paint dry faster. Adding the hardener will give you the shiny finish...they say.

I enrolled in the Rolledon forum...gonna do some reading there!

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

did some more testing with the thinning. 75/25 mixture seems to give the best result. that is 25% thinner.

here are some pics. I think it will need at least two more coats...damn, this is a lot of work...

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

@ titto: I am taking the tape of today, picture will follow. PEople warned me about the tape staying on too long leaving glue...dont want that. I'll just tape it up again tonight for the second coat of the day.

@ John: hahaha, thats a nice compliment. I might look into this harder too or just finish her up with clear coat finish.

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

I have put on the 3rd coat last evening/night.







I checked this morning and it is still not covering all the red that is underneath.

I also noiticed that the parts I finished last have dried up flat. I checked the temperature when I quit and it was around 60F. Not very warm, but within range.

What causes this flatness? and can I buff it? or should I put one final coat over for the shine?

Re: Suburban K20 1986 Silverado

I painted a truck a few years ago too late in the day, the dew makes the paint flat, because it keeps the vapors from escaping.
