And I try to play husband full time. We have an 11 acre horse farm in beautiful MI where we raise our 6 chickens, 2 horses, 3 cats, our Golden Retriever, Junebug, and of course 1 Mustang. I enjoy updating our house, making improvements to the farm and tooling around outside in general, playing guitar and piano, camping, and, in a past life, mixing sound. Oh, and working on my car! But first, everything begins with finishing up the hood scoop from where I most recently left off I decided I did not want the turn signal indicators in the hood scoop so

Selah, WA I am getting ready to prime my reworked firewall pretty soon and have many questions I painted the firewall last year but it did not turn out well at all. I have the firewall sanded down quite a bit now but I still have about an hour left to do. There is no paint what so ever on the firewall right now and quite a few bare metal areas from sanding. Before I tried painting the firewall last year the car had been blasted so I just cleaned the metal and shot epoxy over that at the time.
This time I have been sanding with grit on a jitterbug sander. I will have to use my dura-blocks to finish the firewall up where all the tight corners and curves are.
Is grit a good base to lay down my couple coats of epoxy or do I need to go courser? My plan: - Sand with and apply coats or SPI epoxy. Let epoxy dry for hrs. What grits should I use to start blocking the body filler and the layered slick sand and what grit should I finish with? I was going to top coat the blocked and smoothed slick sand with PPG 2K high build primer as a top sealer as well or do I use something else?
Then after the 2k is applied and sanded I have heard of using grit as the final sanding , then start laying down my PPG metallic. Also what about paint tips? All I have is the 1. I know the 1. I hear they like a 2.
Also what size tip for the metallic paint and the clear coat?
