Prophetic, at least so far!Better start saving now, might take an entire college fund to buy a clean MKIV in 16 years...
Yeah it's a shame that it's hidden in the tunnel. Thanks!It would be nice if that DM piece was shown more in the open but none the less it's a nice touch. Also that paint is looking shiny and good job on the prep with the disassembly of everything so it is done right.
Yes, but my setup isn't anything too special. I think I've described it earlier in the thread. I have a 60 gallon air compressor and a Harbor Freight HVLP gun set. I used the small detail/touch-up gun for the bay as I wanted more control over a large fan-out. Though I wish I did, I don't have any sort of booth setup. My strategy has just been to move everything far enough away and cover things I don't want to get overspray on with drop cloths. I still have a red mess to deal with. When it comes time to paint the outside panels, I plan to find a booth. Especially with this single stage paint, it's particularly bright and tenacious - base/clear is usually a bit less of a mess.Are you doing the paint work yourself? If yes, I would love to see your setup.
No trouble with dust nibs in the paint this go-around, just red dust everywhere in the shop. I'm pretty pleased with the Kirker paint, at least so far. I used SPI clear on the Tacoma and it came out pretty nice too, but it did have quite a few nibs and will need to be sanded out to be perfect.thanks, I was thinking it might be in the thread somewhere. Yeah, I was wondering if you had some sort of booth or canopy setup. Of course I cannot see any dust from an internet picture, but your results seem very nice.
It's a new windshield. TriVal is the brand, it's a Pilkington line... it's the only kind I was able to find.Glad to hear it made a safe travel. On that windshield were you able to find a new one or a used one? I like that they replaced all the black trim around it and made it one piece now.
I hope you can find some local Supra people and keep your inspiration going for your build because it has been coming along nicely and will be even better once it is on the road. Smiles per gallon is plentiful in the Supra
