    image.jpg image.jpg I’m finally doing it. Got everything stripped off the dart and putting up the home paint booth. I still have to insert the filters and get things sealed up but it’s coming along.

      Are you going to use some fans to draw out the fumes?

        You will probably like the effect of the plastic. The static draws all the dust away! Make sure everything is dry before you remove it. It will be loaded.

                You need more light. It gets DARK in a hurry with all the paint in the air.

                      That's what I have used.
                      If you have a Menards near you it's even cheaper. $17.78 after sales rebate.

Never painted a car this way ever in my life. It was a bit nerve-racking but a lot of fun also.

                        What are those scoops? Look similar but not exactly like OEM.

                            Not sure what they’re off of. I bought them from a guy who had them on a 65 dart hood. He said they were on that car when he got them. They seem to fit on the hood perfect. They are square on the backend and instead of having a chrome trim piece on the front it looks like they were molded with that front edge piece there. They do have the pentagram insignia molded into them as well as a part number.

                              Thank you. You can kind of see from where they were bolted on how they fit perfectly over the scallops in the hood.

                                I learned a lot from this first experience. I have quite a bit of orange peel on the hood scoops. After researching a bit I realize I put way too much paint on. Some of the edges where I could barely reach are actually perfect. the main flat areas are orange peeled because of the amount of paint I put down. Now I’ll learn how to sand!!
