Black Epoxy Primer Is The New Simple Interior

Black Epoxy Primer Is The New Simple Interior


My compressor works
I have prepped this area. I have gone through
multiple rounds of sanding number one is
the xylene removal of all the residue
from the adhesive used to attach the
carpet and the sound deadening xylene
works great and then I use a wire brush
on that both the hand wire brush and a
powered wire brush then all the painted
services are sanded with the da sander
or by hand with 180 grit and then I come
back on the bare metal and I do 80 grit
on anything that’s bare metal it’s a
little harder to put scratches in the
bare metal right now I’m just starting
to mask off the areas I don’t want
painted I’m not gonna be painting up
high on the – that’s gonna be the body
color but all this is gonna get the
epoxy black I did not go to bare metal
on the inside it’s really not necessary
this paint is in good shape you can see
the original color there it’s Prussian
blue I removed as much as I could of the
factory seam sealer it was a very broad
brush application of the seam sealer is
a little bit messy so I am going to
remove as much as I can clean it up and
then reapply it after I put the epoxy
down
okay I stopped at the halfway point
because it was just getting a little too
cloudy for me too much overspray and
this confined space and I started
getting worried about my eyes
so I got some goggles this will be
better for confined spaces and it’s also
good to just take it slow it’s really
difficult to spray inside here
especially with my full-sized spray gun
so I am just going to do it in two steps
hope for the best
this epoxy primer is pretty glossy and
it’ll stay about this glossiness because
it’s been about 24 hours at least for
this section but you can see how
difficult it is to prepare all these
little nooks and crannies if you look up
close here you can you can see how
there’s a little bit of unsanded area
there but it’s so it’s not perfect but
it’s certainly good enough also you can
see back here the glossy black is pretty
unforgiving when it comes to this hammer
marks in the floor pan you can see kind
of every little hit I did my best to
make it look as good as possible the
intent with this is that you know
minimal interior so this in a lot of
ways is the interior so it’ll be visible
some areas will get some sound deadening
on top of it of course the whole bottom
of the car is under coated so that
provides a little bit of sound deadening
but I’ll probably be adding some things
like Dynamat on top and the plan is to
drive the car with nothing and then
slowly add in more sound deadening in
kind of strategic places where it
provides the most benefit that’s the
goal so it’ll be like I said before a
very Spartan interior I might use a
couple garnish rails on the top but you
know for the most part it’s gonna be
sort of bare metal black I only did one
coat without the roll bar I’m gonna be
adding the roll bar hopefully next week
so that means welding in the roll bar
permanently and then going back and
touching up the areas that were welded
and then probably one more final coat
and I’m not sure if I’m gonna leave it
in this epoxy black or shoot it with a
top coat let me know what you guys think
I like the gloss on this it’s it’s kind
of a semi-gloss I could do satin top
coat it’d be a little bit more forgiving
and I can try to do a better job with
coverage and so forth with maybe a
smaller detail gun but let me know what
you guys think also I didn’t have the
heart to block out these doors I got one
Viper green and then one red door over
there and for some reason I can’t bring
myself to do it okay so one of the
unique things about this car is it was
junked
out and left for dead so part of its
story is all the parts that I collected
to put it back together that’s why the
door is green the other door is red the
deck lid is brown I mean it’s really a
hodgepodge of parts and I’m considering
leaving the color of all the parts on
the interior at least you know let me
know what you think am I crazy or did I
just do too much work this week and
didn’t have time to to paint the inside
of the doors I’ll definitely be taking
them off the car but you know let me
have your opinion on that this week you
know this was a short video but tons and
tons of work just to spray you know half
a quart of paint it’s unbelievable how
time flies when you’re having to sand
and prep and work in confined spaces
definitely a ton of work but thank you
again for watching please don’t forget
