Hi, I’m Doug I work with 20 great guys in
St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we are going to do some work for you today
on Expert Village. Dan is applying the clear coat. Now he is using a big gun with a big
pot with lot of air pressure. When he was doing the repair work, he was using a smaller
gun in order to have greater control of the over spray, the color distribution. Now the
point of getting clear on this is to get enough on there as you can and get it on evenly.
He is not worried about the over spray as much. He is not worried about the over spray
as much, he’s not worried about the material blowing into the air. He is mostly worried
about getting a good even coat on there that is shiny. He has the air pressure backed up
quiet a bit in order to itemize the clear coat better. The air rushing out of the gun
breaks the clear into smaller pieces and he is getting a lot to material on there fast,
he wants good film building and good shine. After he is done spraying the first coat,
it looks like it has dirt in there but that is actually just the metal flake sticking
through the layer of clear that is on the piece right now. The metal flakes are big,
it sticks up, it points out through the clear. We are going to put a number of coats on this
to carry all of that metal flakes so that it is a nice shiny job when we are done.
