Wow, I'd be afraid of storms, birds, wind, and bugs!

Looks good so far

Good luck with the rest of the project!

I have painted a couple vehicles outside. Not the entire vehicle, but one was a front end wreck and the other was a mid stripe around the whole truck. Not too bad, but you have to be really picky on the day/weather (wind, temp, HUMIDITY, etc).

When I did the front clip on the front wreck, I pulled the front of the car under one of these to try to control any leaves, bugs, etc. Get the right day and it can be flawless. I use this too to paint small objects (fenders, bumpers, even hoods)

When painting outside in the summer, humidity can be the biggest factor.

Just make sure you dont shoot it in the sun. It will dry before it flows out smooth making for many hours of color sanding and buffing. Humidity is not a bad thing with enamels (reg, acrylic or urathane). It will allow paint to flow longer to be smoother. Its very BAD for laquer. It causes blushing, where the top coat clouds up when moisture is trapped under the surface. A lot of humidity can cause your enamels to run easier if you dont plan for it just because it dont dry as quick. I actually prefer shooting a car with it raining outside....no dust or bugs in the air....and dries slick enough in a lot of cases, it dont need color sanded at all.

Warm the panels a little with a heat gun don't go frying your primer just warm them. If you have some halogen lights use them to help dry paint during day it will attract the bugs into the light away from the car.

I thought about it. However not that good with masking. Also I really like all white with just some Black parts.

Painted my car in my driveway.
Show quality finish.
Judges at shows swear I'm lying when I tell them it was painted outdoors.
Pics and thread here:

(starts about 1/2 way down the page)

Pick the right day and use good materials and proper technique and it's not difficult really.
