Re: Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

Do not leave the sanded primer for many weeks then apply basecoat. Follow the product instructions to the letter. My new painter uses PPG all the time. The first one did not and I paid the price, an expensive price.

Dont let the image below happen to you!

Anyhow the car will look even better this time.

Thanks for the tips Jason...
It must've broken your heart to see that paint peeling like that..

Re: Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

Sounds about right Jason.

When I built the build table and painted that I went out to body shop paint supplies at Bayswater. Told them that I wanted "Ford light engine blue". First question they asked was what undercoat I wanted.

This then followed with me explaining what undercoat I had already used (a regular hardware store product) and them being unable to sell me something compatible. Lesson learnt. For the best results you really do need to use the whole box and dice from the one manufacture.

It was evident when I was wiping down the build table prior to paint that the recommended cleaner was dissolving the primer. I can only imagine what sort of reaction would have occurred had I used something incompatible.

I'm looking forward to seeing the results of the new paint job.
I remember it was already pealing at the Philip Island historic's in early 2016.

good luck

Ryan

Re: Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

Yes it started peeling early. Lucky that the primer was all good, no issues there so I have a solid base to build on. Painting will start this weekend.

Re: Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

Cool, are you getting that guy with the cobra in Moorabbin to do it?
I would love to be there to see the pain get laid on.

He was too busy. I'm getting it done at SL Customs. Recommended through the cars and coffee crowd.

Re: Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

I remember my brother teaching me "it's all in the preparation, not the painting". I'm sorry you are having to deal with this. Very unfortunate. You have done a fantastic job on an amazing car
