:0) Finally! - Morph gets painted

Just got the wheels and roof to do.

http://www.lrproject.com/morphpainted/

....next time someone suggests stripping the 12 layers of Camo from a 101 I
hope they have a high pain threshold ;0)

Spray this time. Percy was rollered. I think I'll roller the roof if only to
save the masking up.

Percys rollered Piccys are here...

the finish On Percy was in my opinion far better. Though I have sprayed matt
cellulose this time but I've yet to get a finish which doesn't need work.
Doesn't help spraying in the great outdoors either.

The Range Rover which I sprayed a few weeks back polished up well. I've yet
to upload my piccys. Will do soon.

Looking good! want to come round and do mine while youre at it? :)

I can now say that mine is shinier than yours! :p

and we all know that you got your parents to strip the camo off so you
cant really say that!

Did you strip the roof? I was wondering if i could just get away with
sanding and painting over mine cos nobodys every going to see it
closely except me!

Erm...nope. I;ve had my madk on nearly 9 hours today give or take a munchie
break. Not nice.

Indeed.. can't believe how much smaller it looks painted.... almost

They made a cracking start... but left the finer detail to me.

Nah!

Do it.. It didn't mind the overspray. I'd be tempted to seal it first then
paint it with your colour. When I say seal I mean something rubbery to keep
out the moisture.

Thats how it was when i sprayed my car. almost collapsed when i was
done and got back in!
rememeber that youre supposed to replace the filters on the mask after
so many hours of use too. (not only do they not filter that well but
you can hardly breathe through them!)

the mirror effect should really make them look smaller (or invisible!)

i'm just tired of scraping! and have an unhealthy stack of reciepts
for nowt but nitromors!

half of my roof is double skinned anyway since i chequer plated it to
cover the holes where the cross was. That doesnt leak atall!

You could perhaps seal it with PVA glue?. Works on bathroom floors!

Lee,
Did you use the paint purchased from Gaydon and did it turn out to be
cellulose? I've found one reference to Xylene being used in synthetic
paint but unclear as to why.

Steve.

I took the Synth compatible primer I had back to the supplier and swapped it
for cellulose primer and got another tin of cellulose thinners. I've applied
the spray Xylene based what ever it is mixed 50/50 cellulose thinners
without any major problems. Due to spraying uncovered in the great outdoors
this time the paint was virtualy dry on application as is to be expected.
The finish is a little coarse to the touch as was the Range Rover when I did
that. The Range rover polished up a treat after flatting off with 1500's
then g3 then polishing... though I could do with going over it again soon as
there is the odd patch here and there which need buffing up. I've not bought
a air polisher yet , that will have to wait till after my hols..got MOT's x2
imminent.

The paint man (at Gaydon) recommended 10% xylene based thinners... I used
50% (thats the kind of guy I am! ;0) ) cellulose thinners (which had xylene
refences in its contents/ingredients). I've not got a viscousity (sp?) cup
but I'd have thought 10% thinners would have left the paint too thick..
though it may have gone on in more of a wetter for longer state I expect.

Now the dilema. Morph (101) is a Matt finish but I'd like to remove the
coarse finish (to the touch) if I flat it with 1500's and soapy water do you
think this should be ok? I suspect so. Visually the paint is fine..but then
it's not rocket science getting a psuedo military finish (I couldn't find an
origional yard brush!)

I'm looking for a matt but smooth to the touch finish so getting a gloss
isn't a problem. Given it will be like flatting a football pitch I can see
it being done in installments :0) though to be fair it's a 1500's is a lot
less work than the pre paint prep.

First I have to paint the wheels and roof then sort the MOT again.

Any tips for doing wheels? I've flakey matt camo on no doubt a gloss bronze
green some where underneath. I'm looking for minimum effort presentible
finish.

I have some nitromors left over but will this attack / weaken the tyre valve
/ tube?

Interestingly I haven't done any prep to the roof area, the overspray seemed
happy to sit on the camo paint with out any noticable reactions. I'm hoping
to seal the roof , any recomendations for this before the colour gets
applied and will the colour sit happily on the recommended (assuming there
is one) product.


Many many thanks again, without your pointers I'd have been stripping the
first pannel again due to potential reaction between conflicting paints.

I guess that's what you've been up to while the rest of us were getting
sunburnt in herefordshire.

Yeah, my sidekick had booked leave so I had to hold the fort :o(

Perhaphs as well as I'm actually begining to get somewhere with the fleet
again.

Can we entice you to Billing? Morph may make an appearance..but then if he
doesn't one of the fleet will :0)
