    Finally sprayed my Z

    I used the HOK kd red primer as a sealer for the base. I used that instead of their silver sealer tinted. I painted the jambs first and separate from the rest of the car. They are a slightly different shade of red. I think it had to do with the humidity when I sprayed the body. It was extremely humid and the car was taking much longer to flash between coats. I found that I used way more base than anticipated for coverage so make sure that you have extra from the same lot number in case you run into the same coverage issue. The HOK stuff is very nice quality and this is my 1st base/clear job. I started to get tiger striping on the hood and had to spray at 90 degrees from prior passes in order to eliminate it. Overall, a very in depth expensive learning process.

    Just following up on this. I used fabric wheel covers when spraying. Nothing really on the wheels but the tires did get some overspray. The stuff on the wheels just wipes off with a wet rag. The tires are old anyways so it really doesn't matter in my case. I am still reassembling everything but the project has been on hold for months due to cold weather. I have another car in the garage with it and there is no room to work on anything with both cars in the garage. I also started putting on a Holley Sniper fuel injection system and the fuel line routing to my fuel cell is proving to be a challenge.

    Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    Be careful using any acid product under certain epoxy primers. Many epoxy primers are not compatible with acid rust convertors or etch primers. In the House of Kolor tech manual, it states over and over not to use any acid product under their epoxy primers including etch primers. Check the tech data sheets on the paint system you plan on using to make sure you dont end up causing more headaches down the road.

    Would they cause a fuss with no cat convertors?

    It looks like it is a Canadian car. I just did quick research on what it would take to import into the USA and it looks like a pain in the a$$. I am sure that there is a market for your car here in the US if it could be imported but I am not familiar at all with Canadian prices. https://www.cbp.gov/trade/basic-import-export/importing-car

    Finally sprayed my Z

    Hi guys. I finally finished up the body work and sprayed my Z. It has been a long long process. The color is House of Kolor KBC11 candy red. It came out good. There is soo much reassembly to do after I finish color sanding and buffing. Here is a few pics.

    240z or 280z Seats

    I have a clean set of black seats out of my car. They are from a 1978 280z. Where are you from as shipping these would be cost prohibitive and a royal pain in the ass. Ian.
