Ok I got it cleared this morning and it has sat for a few hours so I can handle it now Not enough to put the wings on but you can get an idea of how it will look. I had this jet for about a week and a half and now I will start the buffing process. which I should have done in a couple of days. Hope you like!!!

Ok, I have a question for you home painters. Do you just paint it in your garage, or do you have some kind of paint booth? Reason I ask is that I am going to try and attempt to do my first paint job on a BVM Bobcat XL in the next month.
Thanks

I do my painting from home. and i have alot of ventilation and I have created my 25x25 steel building into a positive pressure filtered air booth. there is only an Intake fan with large filters and then my exhaust (which doesnt have a fan has filtration as well as the outgoing air gets directed into a trough of water to collect any un filtered paint still in the exhaust air. This makes my painting more neighbor friendly. LOL.

From a guy who paints flats and military colors, explain the buffing process. Dont need a novel, just a quick down and dirty on it. I've always wondered what it involved.

No matter what you will always have a certain amount orange peel in your clear coat or even the highend single stages that are buffable. so what the basic idea is to flatten the surface then buff it to a shine. The wayI do it is by using 800 first to flatten tape lines and then 1500-2000-3000 and then use a compund and high speed buffer.

Oversprayer,

First : WOW what a nice job !!!

May I ask a few questions (Because I did my first airbrush attempt last week, and it wasn’t as good as I wished… lol…
What kind of paint do you use (water, oil, acry)?
What kind of clear coat ?

And again, wow, you really have an impressive talent!
