|Painted my Locost in the garage - timelapse video|
Just thought I'd share this, as I was searching for something similar to watch before I took the plunge.
I race in the 750MC Locost championship, and wanted to bring some colour to my black car. I had a spray gun (a Devilbliss), I had bought paint a while
ago (I went for Renault Liquid Yellow Pearl - a 2 stage cellulose paint) and had decided on using Matt Lacquer to be a bit different. I was doing it
at short notice, and my local paint place only had the primer and lacquer in rattle cans.
Briefly, I sheeted off the garage (although I took my time and did this well everything got covered in lots of yellow dust, as I didn't have any
windows or door open, as it was really cold outside) I rubbed the paint down with 600 paper, did 2 coats of lacquer, 2 coats of base paint, 2 coats of
top pearl paint, then 2 coats of lacquer. I took the masking off before the paint had dried, so it didn't lift the paint. Anyway, here:
