I'm digging the cracks about my stalledouttedness.

wicked stalled out this summer.

warm temps lately have allowed me to heat the barn to 70 degrees with my woodstove, and a 3 day weekend from work gave me the time, so I have been moving forward on the body some more......

3:2 mix Paint to mineral spirits

rustoleum pro flat black.

brushes and a roller.

lots of careful attention.







when dry the paint kinda looks like frost on black paint, it's perfect.





these pics are one coat of paint, out of 3 total, should be "flatter" with more coats.

next weekend, I can start putting the glass and wiring in.....

I had to go back and re-read the entire thread. I had forgotten how much work you've put into this. Any idea what the total cost is so far? I need a reality check so I can stop looking at rust buckets on CL.

Anyway, awesome job, I can't wait to see it finished!

I like the paint. It's not as flat as the rattle can jobs I see on CL. That look is getting old.

Was the mineral spirits only to allow it to roll nicely, or did it add the slight gloss to the finish?

I'm thinking I'd like to do a two tone with similar black and a gloss contrasting color.

The paint looks great. I saw the mix ratio, but what is the technique?

What type of roller do you use?

Thanks

Spend a little time here to get the details: http://rolledon.forummotion.com/

You can get a great gloss from it too!




Work I have done.
