MODERATORS PLEASE DON"T MOVE THIS TO THE PAINT FORUM!

the best way to paint a car stunner

is to remove interior, glass, mouldings, lights, everything, etc.

then remover the hood, trunk, doors, gas door, etc., if you have a homie with a rotisserie even better, but for this you would remove the frame(forgot, weatherstripping).

with the cars like this stunner its easier to do body work and primer base it.

you can paint the ranfla but a method called "encapsulado"=encapsulated.

this is where the substrate to be painted is covered inside and out with a coat of base/paint/clear.

this is why many of the ranflas here that were built 30 - 40 years ago still exist.

encapsulating a car is not only aesthetically please, but it inhibits any corrrosion from happening.

to encapsulate you are paint everything piece by piece, the door only, the hood only the truck only etc.

it is also a good idea to have a paint brush to spray the door jams and other area of he car where there are 90 degree angles. with an airbrush gun you can avoid overcoating and run-off, orange peel.

this is such a novel again :cheesy: .

any questions on technique or method?

ok, i see what you mean stunna.

Cruz let us know about the tent and vaccums?? Also do you bake the car afterwards?
to make a tent.

have you sent the tarps at the swapmeet? those bars and joints the use?

just make a triangle, a huge triangle the will fit your ranfla. if you can't make a rectangle, but instead of using tarp, vinyl or plastic sheeting.

use bed sheets, and wrap it like book cover, top/bottom and all sides.

then you sell it with tape? box tape or even better duct tape and seal it.

then on three corners make a hola near the floor and place the vacuums there to suction overspray. when you start paint spray the bed sheets lightly with water or i mix a little baby oil in it, with a little baby oil it attracts and holds dirt.

if you have any other questions?

gracias cruz, you have alot of good information for backyard lowriders.
lowlow,

most of the best ranflas are from east la. most of them were painted in backyards.

i will see if luvregals has flickas of them, all of my ranflas were done in my back yard, or you can go to olympic and the 5 fwy in east la and rent a booth.
