I learned a lot about brush painting a car today. Somewhat of an arcane process that gives one great respect for the guys who used to brush paint model Ts ahead of the QC supervisor. You use a lot less paint than you would expect. I used two pints of paint. You slop it on thick and smooth it out. Use the large flat side of the brush not the tip, the tip creates bubbles. The difference between a run and not enough paint to flow is a very fine line. You can't go back and add more paint over something in ten minutes, it makes a sticky mess. Let it dry and go back later. I have a few runs to fix and some spots that need some more paint. But that is super easy to fix, I already tried it on the dash where I had a big drop hit it. Sand it with 600 grit and repaint. Once the runs and shit are fixed I am going to wax it and buff it off with one of the wife's old microfibre cloths. I tried it on part of the grill shell and it works really nice. The wax and buff makes it feel really smooth and buffs off more of the dust marks. The brushed finish really appeals to me. It has look of a kids truck from the 50's. Bought it wth Fridays paycheque, sanded Saturday and painted Sunday after church. Ready to go chasing girls the following Friday night.
