Thank you very much 68 coronet for your good advice.
Ok, my truck is ready for primer. I have repaired all small dents,used filler,and used guide coat to make sure I don't have any high or low areas. Forgot to say I have sanded the truck all the way to bare metal. Like suggested here,I will be spraying 2 coats of epoxy.
I am going to wait for a couple of days for epoxy to dry good before sanding. My question is: What grit of paper do i use,120,180,or what grit do I use? Also,do I sand with dry or wet sandpaper? After I'm finished with block sanding the epoxy, Can I spray the urethane 2 K primer and than sand block again? Need some tips since this is my first time painting.
Of course I am not going to do any painting until I know the truck is completely ready.
I bought a cheap hood from a wrecking yard so I can practice.
Also, do I need two guns to spray,one for primer and one for base coat and clear coat.
I understand that the tips that I need are 1.3/1.4 for base and clear and 1.8 for primer.
Final question: My compressor is a 30 gallon, 155PSi,5.3SCFM,with a 1.6 HP.
What kind of spray gun can I get to use with this compressor?
Thank you all for your kind help.
