    :welc There are a bunch of great folks on here with years of Experience.

    And I hear That Grizzly Guns Are the Best :exci

    look around where you live to see what brands of paint are close by .
    As for a gun Im a SATA fan but I have no preference. Devilbiss makes good stuff, Iwata also. Check ebay for a good used gun I have had good luck so far.

    I am a new guy here, thinking about painting my 59 Porsche myself and was wondering what the best procedure was to repaint the car. The car was done in the 80s with a metallic silver anciat clear coat and I don’t want to take it to bare metal. I was thinking of using Acrylic Urathane single stage paint Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    If you need a good deal on a gun go to e-bay….look closely and study all the options and you can get killer deals on a Sata 3000 RP. I know from experience. Bought 2 3000s for 600 bucks..awesome! Have a blessed week!

    So no replies to my first question , so I’ll trt again. :wak I have a 59 Porsche that was taken to bare metal 20 years ago and painted with bc/cc back in the early 80’s. I want to paint the car myself but have no desire to take it to bare metal again. I want to use a SS urathane paint. My question is: What prep steps doI need to do before painting the car. All suggestions welcome.

    do you think a 59 Porsche is really a great car to practice on? what kind of cond. is the car in? Some pictures might help. first of all i would completely dismantle the whole car (remove all door handles, mirrors, key cylinders, bumpers etc.) Scrub everything that is painted with a wax and grease remover, mark all your dents and ripples that are going to need filler work,if you are going with ss paint sand the entire car with 320-400 grit paper until all shine and peel is gone. If their is any rust i suggest sand blasting just the spots. fill all imperfections and finish with a polyester putty. tape, paper, prime,seal,paint, cut and buff, reassemble. :weights

    :welc , as far as videos go, I would look at the videos and technical articles on this site and the goto youtube and type “Refinish Network” and “Bondomerchent” these should have just about everyting you might need to see to paint your bike. Enjoy the site.
