Re: Slab Cab'n

Well we had high hopes of peeling tape today, BUT when we backed her out in the light the burgundy was very blotchy, so on top of the 5.5 hours of painting we had into the burgundy we put another 5 hours into it today and have about 7-8 coats everywhere! Hopefully the tape comes off tonight.

Re: Slab Cab'n

Looking good. Too bad about the rear door. Next time what you want to do is hand block the filler with something straight and long with the sandpaper on it. Then when you think you have it as straight as possible. Shoot it with a coat of primer. Let dry. Then you want to hit it with some black spray paint out of a rattle can. This is called a "guide coat".

You don't need a heavy layer of the black. When that is dry, take your sandpaper on your block and use long even strokes across what you just painted.

All the low areas will still have the black paint in them. The high areas will have no paint (from being sanded off). This will tell you you need to add another skim coat of filler to the entire area.

Repeat process until there is NO black paint after sanding, indicating NO low areas. Reprime, then add color. This can be very tedious. All depends how picky you are.

If you want to fix the area, you will need to wait until the paint cures. Then sand down to the filler and start process above.

Re: Slab Cab'n

What the main problem is with the back door is, when we first got the bus, the back door was in rough shape, and we decided to loose the bottom window. We only covered it with thin body metal and used the body to clean up the edges. We shoulda got some thicker gauge and riveted it to the outside to put some sturdiness into it. And yes you are very right as to how much work you want to put into it, and both of us don't like body work too much, so we'll live with it. But thanks about the info on the correct way to fix that issue!
