What did you use to sand the faded paint down to bare metal? How long did it take?

I get a lot of these here in Texas. Just curious what other people were using to strip them and how long it takes.

What spray gun did you use for the clear? Turned out great. :thumb:

I used some 8" 80 grit on my buffer. Ran the slowest speed. I ran over that with some 80 grit on the da jist to make sure everything was good and flat. I refined those with some 180. Not sure how long it took. 30min to an hour probably.

The sagola 4500x. I had to sand and buff the whole truck. Had a good bit of trash plus I had some serious die back. Not sure why.

I have been doing similar. Have had a little issues with scratches showing back up months later. I think I need to spend more time with 180 prior to primer. That looks like a Texas truck.

I know the primer I use says 80 grit minimum on metal. I just refine those with 180. I sprayed 4 coats of medium build on those areas and gave it a day to dry. They claim the primer won't shrink either. I haven't had any issues doing it like that so far. The truck is originally from Texas. They live here in Florida now.

Thirty minutes to an hour to sand the roof and hood? You're a lot quicker than me.

Did you remove the rubber molding from the windshield? Hard to do on an encapsulated molding windshield. A couple pics looks like it's gone.

For me, the hood, with no crevices or creases to sand out would have taken 30 - 60 minutes and done the way you did it. And, something like the Makita 9227c is great because it double for buffing and stripping paint. I normally use the 80 grit till I see that I'm cutting into the OEM primer with signs of bare metal. Then, I switch to 180 to take the rest of the way.

That's a ton of work for your home garage.

Any neighbor problems with smell, noise or just the fact that you're doing it?

You know I'm gonna say this, another great looking job!

This pic appears to be what you got right out of the gun-YES?

Shows very well what can be done. Of course can't see trash and dieback wouldn't show at this point.

I picked this photo because it shows what can be done to praise your effort and for those wanting to do this in their own 'at home' garage.

I've gone through all the pics and the job looks great, again!

What brand of tape did you use? Looks a little more yellow than the PG26 or 3M yellow 239.

Good job.

Henry

EDIT: My bad, this is NOT your at home garage. Just noticed the walls, height and signs.

It was 30 minutes to an hour just to do the hood. I removed the windshield rubber trim before doing any work on the truck. I usually only do small parts at the house and rent a booth to do the rest. I did prime everything there but usually spray at a lower air pressure so there isn't much overspray. My neighbors don't really say anything. Most of them actually asked me to do work for them. I did have someone say something a few years ago. I was contacted by the City Code Enforcement and after he found out it was a hobby of mine and not an actual business he said they have no law stating that you cannot have a hobby. I've probably had 3-4 people stop by asking about overall paint just since I have been working on this one.

Yes that picture was straight out of the gun. It was done in a booth (which is pure crap as you can probably tell by the pictures). A garage would have probably gotten the same results but not enough air flow for me to want to try something that big. They should have the new semi down draft built at that place in a few weeks though. Should help out a lot.

As for the tape it is the 3m yellow.

I appreciate the kind words sir! I am finishing the interior of my truck before I start anything else. Already picked out the leather, carpet, and headliner I am going to do. Just gotta get it on order and do some fiberglassing! I will probably have a few small painted parts but most of it will be wrapped.
