Looks like its a little too dry too. But if you planned on wet sanding it to shoot more coats all along I guess it doesn't matter.

Try having two cats & two pet rabbits. I could build a hermetically sealed hobby room with an outside only entrance that is
hermetically sealed and still get pet fur in my paint.

According to proffesional high end car painters, the majority of the dust/hair/lint comes off our cloths. I have also noticed having a small booth seems to add to the air turbulence.
Since I switched to a big open top/front booth I have next to no trash in my paint now.
I used to have one of those storage bins turned on it's side, any amount of cleaning/prepping did little to stop trash getting on the paint.

Sorry for the thread high-jack Geoff.
Carry on.

No problem Curt, where I'm airbrushing at the moment is only temporary,or it was supposed to be, eventually I'm planning on moving the spray booth into the garage,which has been getting tidied and rearranged,but work has been crazy and just haven't had the time to get it finished, I'm planning on getting a larger more professional spraybooth.

Luckily the tack cloths arrived this morning, and I'm pleased to say that round two went a hell of better, now to leave it to dry out before painting the black under the chrome trim line,I'm glad I ordered two bottles of the green lacquer.

I agree, a good washing with mild dish soap and water then air dry. When dry, a shot of canned air or just air from the air brush to blow of any settled dust and paint away. I don't like the residue tack cloths leave anyway.

It looks gorgeous but I think you are making it harder than it has to be. Those looking in might take similar steps only to add more issues than less.

That's good point Curt. I usually shoot on a box in the middle of the garage or hold the stand that part is on in my hand and shoot in the open. I get almost no debris in my paint.

That's what I do too Mitch, I mount the model's shell on an old rattle can then hold it up and paint it in my garage.

Looking good Geoff.

That body colour is beautiful and the finish looks pristine! I have nothing to offer regarding dust free techniques - my own attempts have always resulted in issues, specks and creative obscuration of mistakes. Looking forward to seeing this come together.

Amazing how much that black accent changes the lines of the body from 'cool' to 'menacingly cool.' I am also biased towards this style of car (memories from my youth).
