No back burner, my shop is just far away from me to get there often.

I have cut and welded new metal into the area with my TIG to keep the panel from warping. this is just a skim coat of light filler to be sanded off to make sure it doesnt have any wave in it.

I know there are some areas that need touching up, so i am going over it again once more just just prior to paint.


Can i spot prime areas like i have and lay base right on top, or should i hit the whole thing with some high build, sand it down again and giver with the base then? I think in the past i have just primed in spots with no ill effect on paint finish... but i cant remember.

You can if the sand scratches are gone and the color covers well.
If it's some reds or yellows I like it to all be one color before top coating. It may look good under shop lights sometime but get it in the sun and you find out its "boogered up". Looking at your ride I would not spot prime I would go full prime.

Full prime, gotcha.

Thanks guys. Its a factory SiR so it has a b16a in it among other things. I cant wait to get the paint done and do my wheels too. I think im going to do them white.

Any color suggestions on the wheels?

UPDATE!

So, me being an over-confident **** sometimes has some backing to it. The paint on the engine bay, spoiler, grille, lip and side trim has turned out immaculate. But I will let the pictures speak for themselfs.





start of my weekend to end in chronological order.


My dad and I building a temporary paint booth within our garage.

Masked up the engine bay.

Sprayed the clear on the engine bay and the miscellaneous body parts.

So as you can see, it has turned out really well thus far. The shedule has me finishing a minor area of work on the welded in panel on the passenger side, finish sanding a few parts, prime the hood and paint the whole car at that time.


I did have one issue with the paint application that I need to address before i continue painting-moisture in the air line. I happened to get a few flecks of water in the clear that need to be fixed and then sand and buff the panels. Below is a pic of what happened...

Base/Clear really is more friendly to amateurs. I will never do another single stage job again if i can avoid it.


Cheers,
Matt

Great job! The bad placee will prob buff out mostly if not completely. Did I miss the paint line you used? :goodjob:
