Welcome to the Part 7 of the Nissan Skyline R32 built.
Previously, we had done the engine bay and the interior. This time we are doing the clear part of the kit and start to spray the bodyshell.
|Please be caution on the clear part as its tend to get scratched very easy. Its wise for you to cover the front side with tamiya masking tape for easy work-ability.|
|Next is to apply black paint on the parts. Mist coat at first layer, wait till dry and several mist coat complete cover all the area. Try not to spray too much at one spot. Try to make sure that paint got it cover at the masking area.|
|Peel off the front masking tape and immediately you can see the trim effect on the back of the windscreen.|
|Peel off the inside masking tape slowly. Try not too peel to fast to minimize peel off.|
|Side views. Look the trim effect.|
|Rear view of the windscreen. Noted on the peel off paint on the bottom right of the pictures. The paint peel off when masking tape is pull. This is due to peeling off the masking when the paint is too dry.|
|Preparation for Primer. Since im spraying the bodyshell its wise to do it outside with free air flow.|
|Check for flaw or any miss spray areas. After you primer the bodyshell you need to perform inspection on the body to notify any defect or abnormalities on the bodyshell,|
|Take note to the in depth area, ie the air vent, lamp area or any opening on the bodyshell. You must make sure that all the surface were covered with primer so that the base coat can grip to the body nicely.|
|This is the most crucial part on the bodyshell when there is the sinking name on the bodyshell. Its must be covered with primer so the base color will sip right through the name nicely.|
Ok, that it for this time. Next time we will look into how to spray the base coat on the bodyshell.
