PART 11 of the build now. In this video I show the painting of the lexan body using rattle cans. Playlist for this build Cutting out lexan body Washing and applying masks Painting lexan body It is important to remember the following points: always use paint designed for lexan; make sure the cans have been well shaken; warm cans before use; leave 15 Min between coats and apply 3-6 light coats; back with silver or white for a professional finish. Some people like to spray outside, if temperatures are cold however I would recommend spraying inside, but remember the place MUST be well ventilated. I use a card box setup under my kitchen hood extract and the addition of a domestic vacuum to draw away the smell and air born particles. When spraying remember not to get carried away -- you are better to do half a dozen fine coats then two heavy ones. Heavy coats run the risk of the paint seeping under the masking and also blistering or running. After each coat keep the body in a dust free warm location for 15 mins before applying the next coat. To spray first make sure the can in spraying correctly, apply the paint by passing the can over the area quickly while pressing the nozzle. Stop pressing at each end and do a few passes. Finally in this video we remove the window masks, this is done working from a corner and pulling flat against the body as with the other masking. If there is some glue residue left this can be rubbed away with a clean cloth. Removing the overspray film is simple and reveals a high gloss finish to the body, if there is some overspray on the edges this is easily removed. Allow a minimum or overnight to completely dry, a few days is best and do this indoors where the temperature is warmer and more constant.
