After Paint Job
A prior owner was trying to turn it into a Roadster, thus cut the doors off above the windows, cut the B pillar off and removed all the top wood. I decided to bring it back to the Sport Coupe it was originally.
After getting quotes of $10,000 to $15,000 to do the body work and paint it, my next decision was to do it myself. Luckily, I found your site and immediately became a Learn Auto Body & Paint VIP member.
I used the AtomX20 with a 2.0 tip for the primer coat and will change to the 1.3 or 1.4 tip for the color.
Thanks and Hi to the family!
I know you are very busy, but took a couple pictures of the car. Two of them show SOME of the runs, as you can see they are long runs.
Also found out my buffer has 3/8 internal threads and a screw holding the backing plate on. I cannot find an adapter to work with all the 5/8 internal thread hook and loop backing pads.
I have a Rupes d/a buffer, variable speed … do you think that would work? I hate to buy another buffer just for this project (so far).
Thanks, and I hope all is well in Japan,

Buffing steps to take
Let the paint cure for at least 2 weeks. The longer the better.
Block sand runs with a block. Take your time and frequently wipe dry and see how much you re-cutting.
Start with 800 if you want to get aggressive with the runs, move to 1200, 1500, then on to 2000 and finally 3000 grit sand paper.
Use a rotary variable speed buffer with the yellow wool pad, then a foam pad with a glaze polish swirl mark remover. 3M Perfect-it is a good system.
