South Park's General Lee orange paint thread

Awhile back I posted a thread whether or not to paint my car and what color it should be. After that I order a gallon of general lee orange paint and most everything else I would need. I had every intent to paint my car that August. I got the garage set up like a paint both and I was going to car pool with my dad to work. The day I was to start sanding my dad backed out and I had no way to get to work without my car. I had to take everything down and move my project back to wither brake.
Now today it is time for my project to finally start. First I cleaned the garage floor which took forever because it was filthy. Then I was going to soda blast my winter rim and the exhaust I got from DF but there was a problem. The soda is not taking the paint off the rims. I fiddled with the soda blasting kit for like a hour but I cannot figure out would I am doing wrong. It is like the soda is not hit the rim fast enough. Does anyone have an idea no how I can strip the rims and exhaust?
Also I took a bunch of before pictures of my car. Here they are.

what is your compressor output?? what is the minimum spec of the media unit you have??

if you have too low pressure you will not have enough force to remove material, and, on the opposite end, can be less effective with more than spec pressure.

depending upon media, it can break up on impact and be less effective out of the 'sweet spot', which is going to depend upon the kit you have and the material being cleaned.

other than that, i am not familiar with soda blasting. i have done sand, though. soda is apparently better for more 'delicate' application where even the finest sand would run the risk of pitting.

This indicates you may need as much as 150 psi line pressure.

^ This^ Most people that are wanting to get the paint off and polish the wheels use a chemical stripper. If you want to paint the wheels just use some 400 grit to sand the existing paint and smooth any dings or scratches in the existing paint, then use a good grade spray paint.

^Do you know which chemical stripper I should use? I am going to be powder coating the rims black not painting them.

I am using this kit with the compressor pictured below. DF, I think you are right that I do not have enough air flow.

yeah, the kit needs 7cfm @ 80psi, and you're running just under 6@ 90psi.

perhaps you could get an external regulator set up??

or rent a larger compressor.

A regulator won't make up the difference. The compressor will never keep up with the gun. You want the compressor cfm to be higher than the requirement of the blast gun by at least 50%.

doh!! what was i thinking??

i was thinking along the lines of a spray gun.....

sorry about that....


ken is correct, so i would look at renting a compressor. just doing a quick google showed that for a hvlp type gun @ 7cfm should use about a 12-18cfm compressor. not sure if the blast gun counts as an hvlp or not, but of in doubt i would double check the recommendations of which compressor the manufacturer would suggest.

Man that sucks. I did not even think to check the compressor before I bought the soda kit. It is so big and my dad bought it to build the house, so I just assumed that it would work. I might just have to hop on craigslist and buy one. I checked a local tool rental place’s website and they want $48 to rent an air compressor for one day . Plus I am only 18, so I do not know if they would even let me rent it.

that's probably 48 for the rental, but would most likely require a credit card for a deposit. that's how most rental places are.

i'd just go for it @ 48 for the day. get it on a saturday if they rent the same for the whole weekend. that'll give you some extra time with it.

just make certain it runs on 110v, not 220, unless you have an available outlet for it.

My dad just installed a 220v outlet in the garage for the oven, so that is all good. I am think about buying instead of renting because one, it is my dad’s compressor I am using now and it would be nice to have my own when I move out two, after just a quick search on craigslist I found one that will work for $150 asking price three, the current compressor as enough air flow to run the paint gun for the little projects I have tried so far but I do not know hold up with bigger items like the hood.

I little while ago Carlos’s 05 Hyundai Elantra had the check engine light come on. I have a cheap eBay USB OBD-II reader, so I read the code for him. The engine was running rich so I suggested that he replace spark plugs, air filter, etc. Yesterday I had everything ready to repair his car and his car was park in the driveway. I told him to pull in to the garage and I whet inside for a second to grab some tools. I come back out like a min. later and from the front fender to the end of the passenger door was all fcuked up. Now his car is not that wide and he had about 1+ foot of clearance on either side of the car, but somehow managed to hit the garage. Then he just continued driving forward. So I send Carlos in to tell my ant Lee. Then Lee comes out to see the damage to the garage and it is not that bad. Carlos is very apologetic and offers to pay for everything but Lee told him not to worry about it. After all this I start working on Carlos’s car. I find that both the air filter and spark plugs are in terrible shape. So I replaced them and some other bits. Then I have Carlos take the car for a test drive. I would have driven the car but the car is heavily moded to let Carlos drive it (he is a midget) and I do not fit. The car runs great and the check engine light stays off. So, end of story right? No a few hours later my dad comes home and flips out on me for the damage caused by the son of a friend of Lee. Then dad goes into a whole spiel about how I should have driven the car that my 10 year old cousin Jimmy could not fit in into the garage and how much happier he would be if I hit the garage.

Anyway back to the painting project. Turns out my dad has a friend with a professional sand blaster who can do the rims and exhaust for cheap. So I am just going let him take care of that. I have been busy lately but today I got some time to start prep the garage.
I spent most of the time putting up some painter’s plastic.






This is my heating system for the garage. At first I tried just a radiator by its self but all the heat stayed within 2 ft. of the rad. So I put two rads next to one another with a fan and that heated up the garage nicely but a bit slowly.




This heats up the garage much quicker and is great for getting the garage up to temp. The only problem is that I can’t use it while I am painting do to the high risk of explosion.




Turns out run 2 rads and a fan off the same cord is not a good idea. When I went to pull the plug I burned my hand on the cord. I had to use my sleeve to unplug it. In the picture you can see the where the plastic had started melting . This is acutely the second electric fault that could have caused an explosion. The first one as a cheap Wal-Mart fan with a stripped power cord. At this rate I can just the next weeks paper’s head line “local meth lab explosion felt from blocks away”. Then the next day a story will read “meth lab explosion turns out to be a homemade paint both”

Yesterday I got the rest of the plastic up and started disassembling the car. I was going to post this yesterday but I fell asleep at the computer. Then when I woke up like 30 min later I just went to bed.


First here are some pictures of the damage Carlos did to the garage. Also it looks like I will be doing to body work for Carlos’s car too. I just ordered the side molding and color matched paint for his car.





It looks like one of the PO’s really hated the right side of the bummer. I wonder how someone could mess up one side so bad but leave the other one it ok shape.







This was the biggest PITA to remove. I seriously hate who every made those little plastic clips.





I removed the fender and I was treated to this little rusty surprise. I hope I do not have to replace the fender over this. What to you guys think? should I replace it?






Ultimate fender roll.




This is how my car sits as of last night




Here is everything that was on my car.

I made some more progress. I got everything I wanted off the car off and disassembled. Now I am sanding everything and repairing the rust as I go. So far I got one fender and most of the trunk done. Also my mom thinks I look like someone infamous when I am were all the sanding stuff. In fact I was walk to the bathroom when my mom saw me. For a spit second she did not relies it was me and let out a surprised shriek. I think she is crazy but, can anyone guess who she thinks I look like.
