first boat paint job
« on: September 04, 2011, 10:46:50 PM »
So I have not been on for a while...just swamped at work.  Here is what I have been working on when I am not at work.  Primered it, then shot it with new Arctic White and Daytona Blue metallic basecoats and a wild 3 color metal flake clear.  These pictures show the boat after the flake was shot and a single coat of clear to seal it.    I am putting silver metallic pinstriping down tomorrow to separate the blue and white that is going to look amazing.  It is going to get about 3 or 4 more coats of clear, color sand and polish.  My friend Greg helped me out so much, I could not have done it on my own.

I will post some in progress pictures, but just thought you guys might like to see these first.

That should really look good with the clear on it.

The red wheels and white wall tires are really retro looking.

So here are some pictures from today after laying the ultra-metallic pin-striping tape down.  This really was the finishing detail for the paint.  Next I will scuff and shoot more clears.

Looks fantastic!   Great job.   You're gonna be damn proud (and should be) when you get it in the water.   Keep it up
