1982 El Camino restoration – Day 2  February 8, 2010 – 09:32 am
Day 257/365 - Hawthorn Ordinance Museum. Yesterday I wrote about the beginning of a long project that I have started in restoring a 1982 El Camino.  We managed the get a lot of the sanding, bondo, and taping done yesterday but we still had a lot to do today.

I woke up at 8am this morning as I had to finish off some coding stuff before I could begin working on the car again, which sort of sucked but whatever.  By the time 10am rolled around I headed out to pick up some more supplies that we needed.  Some finer grit sand paper, more tape, and various painting supplies ( the paint, clear coat, activator, reducer, primer, ect ). After nearly 2 hours of driving around, attempting to figure out the right paint color, and finally getting back to the shop we were able to start working.  My brother Ryan, my friend Matt and I began sanding off the remaining bondo that we put on last night ( which was quite a bit ).  Once we got the bulk of this done, which took about 2 hours, we went over the entire car in a super fine grit sand paper to make it as smooth as possible. This made it so the body was less noticeable and blended with the car a lot better. We then proceeded to finish taping the car off in preperation for painting and covered all of the sanded areas in primer.  After this we wiped down the whole car to remove any remaining dust/sanding remnants and cleaned it as best we could.  It was now time to paint!

    I am a total rookie at painting cars..i want to know what paint gun is best for its price and its results..thanks!

    • I ve had great results with a DeVilbiss finishline 3. I think it was somewhere around $120-$150. The prep work is 10x more important then the actual gun. Its all about te time spent before paint that makes the car look good. Do some google searches on this. but this gun can turn out some awesome paintjobs without breaking the bank.
