Yeah I just got through painting a front left fender and a aftermarket wing for my 97 SL1 and thats where I found mine. I've got an 89 GT and currently trying paint it. I'm having trouble keeping the dust particles out of my paint job but this is my baby and I'm gonna take my time...

Well I've got one of those old siphon type sprayers so I'm just gonna have to deal with it since the gravity feed ones are so high...I'm sure the gravity feed ones are better...So, I was reading a old mustang book about project white trash where they repainted an old mustang, and they said to wash all the walls down in the shop, spray thinner through the paint gun before painting to get all the old paint out, and hose down floor of the shop with water to dampen any dust that might be there...Also I'm gonna try a few other things like washing the whole car to get the dust off it where I have been sanding it and let it dry, then wipe the part I'm painting with paint thinner to get the dust that may have settled while I am taping it...I may also call my cousin (he paints cars) and see if he knows anything else to do. One guy told me to be sure to sand it where you paint it because of the contaminants that are on the car because the paint will surely crack. I found this out on a plastic bumper I bought already primed and ready to go so I painted it and it surely cracked..Good luck..We both gonna need it.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

You can create an anti-static field around the car.

Paint booths are nice too. If you're military or know some one who is you can rent a paint booth on post for a day or week and shoot it in there. You can also rent sprayers.

Otherwise think about running a fan to pressurize the area you're in. Positive pressure will keep additional dust out. Used to build a "shower curtain" of platic dropcloths Make sure these are new or you end up wiping the whole thing down with thinner again! You can also look at what some funiture folks do before they spray finish. Similar situation, as dust messes with wood finsh as well. If you're particular, or using a dark color, plan on at least a few more coats, fine sanding the finish, rubbing down with thinner and recoating. Many thin coats work better than a single heavy coat. All the work is worth it when that new deep color shows up on your car. Don't forget the same is even more true for those last three coats of clearcoat. Powerbuffing with very fine polishing compound works great, but use no pressure unless you like swirls Final between coat sand should be very fine polishing compound by hand, and a rubdown with thinner. Eastwood has a lot of paint tips at their website if you want to Google it.

Important to check the weather....humidity can really the finish

Best of luck....takes patience to paint it right but its worth it.

The dust in the air is not so much as the cloth you use. After you sand, use what is called tack cloth. Don't be cheap, use as much as you need . Then use a quality DISPOSABLE wiper when you are in the final prep stage. The solvent is called Prepsol and it will breakdown any wiper that has a man made fiber included. That is your rayon and poly blends. The wiper needs to be as lint free as possible. The brand name product is called Sontara and is made by Dupont. There is a better alternative wiper named Prematex.

Don't use cloth, don't use a "Bounty like" product, don't use tissue paper. Use a quality wiper which is what a good body shop does.

This message comes to you from a person in the wiper business whose company sells to thousands of body shops in America and is leader in the wiper industry.
