*James Bond. Thank you, will continue to update the thread and storyline. :-)
*Johos. The scoot was rescued in the nick of time, prior to the purchase, it was carrying sacks of rice and I think at one point, doubled as a tractor in the farm. When the bottom panel was removed it was laden with a lot of mud and grass.
Work continued on the scoot. After the curing period of both the epoxy and plastic primer, I continued with the layers of base paint.
After the base color of coarse cosmic silver, this was layered with clear, then followed by the layers of Lime yellow with a pinch of green. The colors are custom not straight from the can, the hue was adjusted to meet my intended color.
Layers of clear topcoat with silver dust were added and the layers were capped with pure clearcoat. Between coats were Dupont G2 and capped with the 3800 slow drying clear.
This resulted to what appears to be both yellow and green at different angles of exposure to light. What you see here is the final capped layer of pure clear coat, without any sort of sanding.
This is quick drying clear and is best between layers of color to give it depth. At one point prior to the pure clear, a bit of Lime yellow green was added to the clear coat then followed by the slow drying clear.
For better appreciation of the process, prior to the layer of lime yellow/green, this was started with the base color of straight silver, then coarse cosmic silver. Finishing putty was applied to areas where indentations were found, then painted over with silver and this is a continuing cycle until we have clear and straight surface.
The windscreen received several stages of sanding and buffing. (Photo of before the backache) :-)
To complete this job: 1. Orbital sander with 3M polishing pad; 2. Mirca Sandpaper, grit 600 and 2000; 3. (3) Stage buffing process (what looks like bottles of swarma sauce) :-) 4. And patience.
This is after the serious back pain that lasted until the next following day. :-(
