Today we applied bondo to a few areas that needed it and sanded that with 80 grit sandpaper. We went over the whole body with a tack cloth. The primer we applied is a mixture of Rustoleum primer with Rustoleum Reducer (one to one ratio). This was applied with a compressor and spray gun (at 35 psi). Thanks to Kevin for lending us his compressor and sprayer :)
This was my husband's first time using a spray gun and he did a great job! It looks really great. He applied 2 light coats. By this time it was getting late, so we'll put on the white and pink colors tomorrow. The only problem was that we don't have a garage to work in, so we had to spray outside. The sprayer has a lot of overspray which wafted into the air and into the street. The kids held up a tarp to try to stem the flow of paint.
I can't wait until tomorrow to see her painted! The weather is supposed to be nice. Cross your fingers!
