    Ok, sorry about the delay and slow progress. Worked pretty hard over the last week to finish up all the prep for the car and primed and blocked everything but the car (e.g. bumpers)

    Cleaned the car and taped up, built the booth frame.

    Should be painting tomorrow. :)

    Its surface primer so overspray isn't really a problem, but yes. The blue and purple variety. Not too worried about that, but will be when it next and goes in the booth. I even didn't worry about opening the descicant snake. All my best taping supplies I have kept till the last session which will be silver, copper accents, blue, intercoat with copper fleck, clear coat x 2 all in one session unless I have issues.

    Yea,regular plastic sheet releases dried over-spray so as when you hit the job with the gun next,say topcoat, it all releases with gun pressure and goes all over the wet paint=disaster...ask me how I know lol

    Ive completely stripped the car again and will wet sand, wash and dry it before it gets re-taped :)

    The plastic material covering it is really amazing, it sticks to the car windows and metal (anything really) by static and it also absorbs overspray. On other types I spray them with bumper primer before I tack wrag the car . That way overspray sticks.

    which polishing products?

    Advice needed, I need something like this as I am beginning to get excited and planning colour sanding and polishing etc once cured.

    I believe a mate may have a polishing machine so what 3 or 4 stage colour polishing products would you guys recommend and why?

    This is my post painting care plan. Happy for comments!

    1 -30 days wash regularly and keep covered

    60 - 90 days as follows:

    1. Wash
    2. Clay
    3. Clean - SwirlX, ScratchX, UC as needed. Hopefully just SwirlX
    4. Polish - SwirlX is a cleaner/polish, so a pure polish like DC2/#7 would be optional.
    5. Wax
    6. Wax

    Ive always heard you cannot use typical soap for up to a month after painting.

    A detailing friend says the polishing AFTER the final clear is the most time consuming thing as thats when you really work down any of the imperfections you created during spray.

    Yes, colour sanding is time consuming.

    I read that it is important to wash (with proper paint cleaner for cars) regularly after painting to ensure no shit gets fused in the paint.

    Very impressive. May I suggest a simple 2000 grit wet sand after 90 days followed by a high buff polish? That's what my buddies around here in Colorado do as do I. The wet sand will de-nib without smudging or shifting the clear coat. You seem to have done a tremendous job and I'm sure you will be satisfied. That being said....... even in pressurized booths I have seen debris in the finished paint., expect fine particulates and even some dust settling onto the fresh clear. Just an option. Flood that clear. I am guessing you know exactly what to do! Again bravo.

    A big arse fan and paint booth filtration media (1 m x 20m roll) set up as positive pressure at exit and entry. I will flow coat the clear and wet sand to 3000 grit before polish (at least that's the plan).. Any info or ideas always welcome.

    Sounds like we are getting the info and ideas from you sir! Do you use any water & oil separators? Air dryer. I ask because you seem to have considered and covered most situations.... all I can think to add is a heater after cleared to somewhat "bake ". Not necessarily needed but I think helps the cure. Very hot days really help too. Is this your first time spraying? I don't mean to bother, I'm just genuinely intrigued. Not many people make it this far into a paint job.

    " Do you use any water & oil separators? Air dryer "

    I suggested this was a necessity way back...
    But because Okie is a perspicacious guy,I'm sure he looked into this and acted on it...
    Two pack sprayed with moisture contamination is a disaster,Poly-u 2K hardener ( and indeed hardener for epoxy based resins ) ,cannot polymerize properly with H2O in the mix.....

    Yeah, I have a water / oil separator, a desiccant snake and I set up the air hose so that it has a couple of s bends also. Additional water trap on the gun.

    Perth is very very dry though, often humidity is very low. I haven't had any issues thus far and I haven't even used the snake. I am saving that for base and clear. The shed I am working in gets to over 100F in summer.

    PS., I really do appreciate the input - even if I have covered it, its best to be reminded or kicked up the arse to do the work (e.g. rear bumper) ;)

    Thanks fellas!
