    Getting the ol 70 Ford ready for paint

     



    Been working on the ol 70 Ford Sport Custom Pick Up truck trying to get it ready for some new paint. I have to many projects though, don't think I'll be buying anything else in the future to work on. So busy going in 20 directions all the time. I want to put a Blue Metal Flake on it, but I have never Sprayed with metal flake before do I need a larger sprayer then I would use for primmer or regular Auto paint to keep the metal from clogging the sprayer??? Anyone know???? Thanks Kurt

    Kurt, hopefully Shine or Robert (MP&C) will see this and they can get you going in the right direction.

    Depending on what you have now, you may just need a different tip size.
    Depending of coarse on how big a flake you want.

    Thanks Ryan & guys. I actually have a old Professional gun that the Brother in law gave me 20 years ago.
    He used it to spay fighter jets in the Air Force. It does great with primers and other paints.
    Plus he gave me 2 touch up guns which are about half the size as the other gun
    Then of course I have the cheapo's from Harbor Freight too.
    The Flake size does not have to be big, I just want enough flakes so it's easy to see in the sun.

    I was just thinking ( remembering ) that you were doing a Ranchero too right?? Did you keep it? I seem to remember you had quite a time getting it to the new house. Isn't that right??

    How are you going to deal with all the surface rust?

    Yep that's been 6 years ago now, The Ranchero is out there still on blocks waiting.
    I was out of circulation for a while and might be again real soon. Trying to get something done before another new hip.

    Very nice work on the ford. It looks a lot better with primer on it rather than the bare steel to rust. I have a truck that is getting that way too. It's no good. Haha
