Spray Painting


In Second Gear
We are currently rebuilding series III and doing the spraypainting of chassis, panels etc ourselves.:eek: This is going well and what has been done so far looks great.:eek: It has been sprayed with smoothrite and looks fantastic. Should there be some sort of lacquer or hardener sprayed over the top of this for protection against chips? Any help much appreciated, thanks.
Nothing should be put over the top of Hammerite for quite a time to allow for it to cure...In fact it shouldn't be re-coated after something like 4 hours:eek:
You may find something like waxoyl would benefit the chassis as that will self repair to an extent over knocks and scratches...
Hammerite is very good in a low impact area, where it will not be subject to chips.
You can get special chassis paint from paint suppliers, Leaversleys army surplus sell it too.
callisr has used it on his rebuild and it looks very good.
