Last video we sprayed the Eastwood Mustang project solid black. This video we are going to paint some red pinstripes and stripes on the car before clear coating.
If you are planning on painting stripes remember to trace the decals like we did in the video before you take them off the car. Even if you are taping out your own stripes, this will give you a reference and make it much easier.
We took the traced stencil we made to a graphics shop and they cut us some stencils to use. This is fairly inexpensive and by far the easiest way to paint decals. Without the cut out stencils, we would have had to tape and cut each stripe and letter. This can be done, but it is very time consuming.
We used fine line pullout striping tape for the pinstripe. This is another method that makes it fairly easy to paint stripes. Lay the tape where you want the pinstripe, then pull out the strips where you want painted. There are eight different pull out strips in this tape, so you could have a number of combinations….two thin stripes, wide and thin stripes, 3 stripes, etc. Learn more about tape at http://amzn.to/29FMtKz
Basic Auto Body and Paint Training
I’m sure you’ve noticed the website looks different. I’ve been busy this summer with the new look and updating the basic training lessons. Be sure to take a look at them. I’ve updated and added content, videos to them, and added a video page to each lesson. Check out the video page for paint prep.
