This is what i might spray some of my smaller interior parts with,ive seen people use them for much larger items too like dashes etc http://www.homedepot.com/Paint-Paint-Sprayers-Paint-Sprayer-Accessories/Preval/h_d1/N-arthZ7vbZ5yc1v/R-202533738/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051#.UBdKSKMrvq0

I painted my s10 with one , it didn't come out to bad at all.Only some lines on the roof but it was the first time I ever painted a whole car.

I screwed around with it for a while with the pressure and to get the "Fan" I want with water/cardboard . I just did like a 50/50 over lap ,the dash should be easier as it is smaller.

It will do the trick for sure . Just take your time an screw around with it , with water and card board untill you get a fan/pattern you like.

Spray light coats untill you get full coverage , wont have to worry about runs that way /

Alright, so i bought the spray gun like two days ago, ive seen better but it works.
Said gun...

And here it is with some of the rustoleum paint, not mixed too good but it layed decently.

Ill wet sand the color and do a few more coats, to get rid of some of the orange peel.

Doesn't look bad , Could of used some G2 primer or similar and blocked it out with 180/200 and you wouldnt see and sand marks.

Lol , You have seen better for $13.99 ?

MMMMKAY... So i did one coat of paint on the dash pad yesterday let it dry over night and what have you and when i went out to look at it today, i wasnt happy with my high and low spots. I knew they would show alot better with the paint on, so i was expecting it.


No big deal... SO i went ahead and sanded the shit out of it, and more filler, this time in longer streaks and with a wider spatchula thing to even it all out.


And in the mean time while the filler was drying i fiddled with the welder just to practice, IM NOT GOOD...


Little mig action!!!!

Agreed have seen worse . Why no gas ? makes it way easier to get nice beads IMO.

Though nice beads dont always mean it is a strong weld.

I dont want to pay for the gas, lol. IMO theyre strong welds, theyre penetrating into the metal.

MMMKAY class today we have an update on the dash board and we're going to take a look at the materials i used and how i did...
The Rustoleum Gloss Black paint i used, the $15 sprayer from harbor freight, Sherwin Williams measuring cups, and basic lacquer thinner, and the body filler...



When i sprayed the other coats a few days ago, i was mixing at around 2:1(paint 2, thinner 1), but for some reason today i mixed 1:1 and personally i thought it was a bit too thin. Then i sprayed it and it didnt run or give me any problems so it was alright.
This is the sand paper ive been using for wet sanding and it has done really well if you ask me, but when i got to get more paint ill pick up a high grit for less sanding marks.

I DO have access to a shop with real equipment, BUT i dont have the money for better materials, real paint booth doesnt improve the cheap paint... So i improvised.
Its simply plastic that you can get at homedepot in boxed and unroll it and cut it for whatever. I stapeled it to the back wall of my garage, then... Well just look at the picture...

And here is that dash after wet sand and another coat of paint...



And here is the compressor im using if anyone wondered...

Nothing fancy...
