Charles, nice setup . I've seen those setups in a couple of shops that I worked in, (I did prototype work in a metal shop) they used those for the production part of it, never really looked at them back then, kinda wished I had. I designed a 40 ft. water wall for a conveyor system where the parts hung and moved along a track, worked really well for keeping the particles out of the air, but that was a high pressure system back then. Your system sounds very neat would like to see it. Alot of the paint that is used in the auto field is time sensitive, as you mix, then wait for it to activate then spray under a certain time limit so unfortunately the type of system you have might not work, boy it would be nice not to have a quart of paint in your hand holding it out waving it back and forth. Looks like tomorrow I start sanding so I can spray color maybe Monday.

Uh-oh. I just learned something new. Auto paint can be time sensitive? I just never knew.

Now that I think about it, I have used some specialty coatings in my wood work that had a specific time limit. The catalyst had to be added, stirred, then there was a waiting period before spraying. Then, the mixture was only good for so many hours before it would harden. That meant in the gun as well.

Wow, the things I have learned on iRV2!

Yup the epoxy primer that I used today is that way, mix and wait 30 min then spray within an hr. the regular sanding primer you can leave sealed in a bag (I use cup liners) almost forever, in the auto shop we never had an empty primer gun. quite a few of the "new" finishes are catalyst paint.

I think you can topcoat over the epoxy primer without having to scuff it up as long as your topcoat goes on sometime between 1 and 24 hours after spraying the epoxy? I know you're going to a primer/surfacer after the epoxy, but I think it's the same for whatever you put over the epoxy, be it paint or otherwise?

There was no need on our new siding to use the primer surfacer as there was no sanding or body work required. I have used it before though, and it's pretty amazing stuff for getting a surface EXACTLY how you want it... but it sure makes a mess of your gun.

-cheers

Good Morning, Piker, yes you can topcoat over epoxy primer, I like to use sandable primer over the epoxy so I can work it. it's a much smoother end result. Your right you have to clean the equipment as soon as you get done spraying. Supposed to have showers today, so hopefully my paint booth remains water tight. We are sanding today getting ready for the topcoat.

Terry, looking great. Cannot wait to see the final coat of paint on. Let's see, it is going to be Honda red, right? To match the bath tub in the hauler?

Good Afternoon, The rear body is now in white........finally Lloyd, maybe the pinstripes can be red..............oh shucks their going to be blue . Now we wait for 7 days for the paint to fully cure then I can apply the clearcoat and reassemble the lights ect. then wait again and apply the bed liner on the top deck and the rear body will be basically done. I guess the pics don't really show the white it's picking (reflecting)up on the blue tarp.
