Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Hi George! Thank's for the tips on the spray paint nozzles! When I asked the question. When I'm finished painting with a particular paint type or color.. Should I turn the rattle can or can's up side down to spray out the excess paint so that I won't waste paint by letting the paint dry out cloggin...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Since the cost of paint was brought up, I'd like to add something a lot of Folks might not know. Automotive Basecoat colors can be purchased in a Rattle Can. Stores servicing Body Shops Will sell you any color plus the cost of the can. The cost of colors vary. The ones I have purchased cost around ...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Folks, when I write something my intent is to never hurt anyone. It is simply my opinion and it is up to you to decide what you want to do. I hope I have done that. I'm a Senior citizen and will turn 79 years of age in a few months. In my younger years I spent 13 years as an Autobody Repairman and ...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

P.S, I forgot ... if the paints are compatible I generally wait 8 to 12 hours depending if I'm in a hurry or not. The paint won't be "cured" as "cured" and "dry" are to different things. Waiting "7 days" or until the paint is gassed off is something I'd do if I was going to rub it out with a Polish...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

If there are deep gouges in your Pinewood Derby car from a Bandsaw then sand them out but the car doesn't need to be perfectly smooth. I can sand out a car with 80 grit paper and keep using a lighter touch as I sand. The Filler Primer will fill a lot. I have never had to sand the Filler Primer. I s...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Turning the Cans upside down and spraying till clear is in big debate among Rattle Can users. Some people say it just waste the propellant and you'll end up with paint in the can you can't use. I myself do flip the can and spray it out and wipe the tip. Another option is to soak the spray cap in "go...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Hi George, First, let me say, You are a Fantastic Artist. I also watched your video on Molotow Masking Pen Demo. That was very interesting. Would you tell us how you painted "Green Mamba"? I can't quite figure that one out. Thank you. Green Mamba is actually a fairly simple paint job, the taping is...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Wow!! Rattle can paint jobs. Sure had me fooled with the airbrush though! Like you I have an air brush set up but haven’t had the time set it up as well. Maybe this winter I’ll have more shop time to do so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I'm hoping to do a video on my Rattle Can process as peop...

Here's the Coffin Nail Racing car's for 2018.
