Your going to need to increase your blocking time. 28 times is not enough. It will be wavy I'm liking the black idea This car is going to be KILLER!

Building a car is more than just buying parts, you have to buy the tools to gitter done. I had been getting by with cheap mini spray guns in the $25 to $30 range for years. When they give me problems, I chuck them and order another one. The last one put me over the edge, because all of a sudden it started dripping paint somewhere behind the trigger, and dripping paint can create a disaster. (in case someone asks, yes, I checked the nut, and it was tight) So, I decided to spend a little more, and I got this Sharpe FX1000. It's actually a little bigger than a standard size mini gun, more of a middy, if you will. I bought it with plans initially to paint the firewall/cowl area, and the dash with it. It can spray up to a 9" fan, so it should be good for those areas. It came with a tiny 6 oz cup, which is too small for spraying a firewall or dash, so I picked up a 20 oz cup.
To spray the rest of the car, I'll be using my tried and true DeVilbiss GFG-670 Plus.

Today, I applied for a custom plate for my '57. My first choice was BICHN 57, but it was rejected, because they thought someone might find BICHN offensive. Whatever....... They accepted my second choice, EV1L 57. I had to use a 1 instead of an I, because that was already taken. I figure the car will be black with a slight rake, so it will look a little bit evil. Since I'm a flag waving American, I spent the extra coin for the patriotic plate.



The weather has finally cooled down here, which means I'm back doing body work. The front part of the rotisserie was in the way of filling and blocking the firewall, so I built a horse to temporarily hold up the front of the body. I will use the horse again when it comes time to painting the firewall.



With the initial filling and blocking done, I sprayed one coat of epoxy primer, followed by 3 coats of 2K high build primer.



I welded up several un-needed holes on the firewall, and I welded the V-shaped brake pedal assembly support to the firewall.

Thanks, John and Unkie! I'm hoping to begin the paint process by the end of next month, starting with the firewall/cowl area.

Did you check the nut behind the trigger?
