Spraying my Hilux

Postby Geranc on Tue, 19 Nov 2019 10:29 +0000

I have been restoring my beloved Mk3 Toyota Hilux over the past 6 months or so, everything mechanically is as new and chassis, axles etc are all epoxied and shiney. I am now finally at bodywork stage, filling sanding etc.

Ive decided to finish it in a satin matt olive drab topcoat.

I have done a bit of spraying on boats before but I feel this will need a bit more finesse to get it looking right so....

I have a selection of Devilbiss guns.

Air fed Mask.

3m Combination filter masks.

3hp 150 Litre Belt Driven Compressor and another smaller one to run the air fed mask.

Heaters and an extractor fan.

Im guessing its adequate for what I want to do and just wanted some good advice on the best way to go about things really.....

Top coat is single pack and idealy I wanted to clear coat it with a matt 2k.

Any help and advice would be great.

Your post was November last year. I'm guessing you've already had a go at it? Your post sounds kinda like you know what you're doing already. The only help I could've offered is that when I sprayed the Kombi 30 odd years ago I got a spray painter mate to do it coz he didn't want me using a 4" brush. Hope it turned out well for you?
