In a drive way your asking for problems. You need to do it in a closed in area thats clean. You can make you a temp booth from 2x4's as big as you need it and wrap clear plastic around it to keep them clean. you will also need to use a fan to pull the overspray out. Its not a huge deal when spraying the sealer or BC but when you spray the Clear all the overspray will float around and settle back down on the tins making them alittle foggy looking and rough. You can fix this with wet sanding and buffing if that happens though.
As for paint, I use plenty of HOK and its pretty forgiving paint compared to some other stuff.
A pint of paint should be plenty to do what you need. A pint is really a quart ready to spray.
As for stripping the tank, there is no need to strip everything else. You will just have to do more prep work on the tank to get it smooth.
-First off clean with some KC10 wax and grease remover.
-wet sand everything with 600 wet sand paper.
-Clean everything again with KC10 and make sure its clean and the kc10 flashes off before spraying sealer.
-Use a tack cloth to make sure its clean.
-Depending on what color you are spraying would determine the color of sealer to use.
-Spray 2 wet coats of KO-sealer
-wait till the sealer has flashed (30-40min depending on your temp)
-Your now ready to spray your BC.
-Mix your BC 1:1 with RU311 Medium reducer.
-Spray BC till you get your coverage 2-3 coats. Let paint flash off 10 minutes or so between coats.
- After final coat of BC let it flash off for 30-40 minutes just so you dont risk solvent issues when you spray the clear.
- Now mix up your clear UC35 at 2:1:1 2 parts UC35 : 1 part KU 150 : 1 part RU311
- 3 coats of clear should be plenty. you want to wait between coats to where the clear just starts to stop being stringy when you touch it on a area that has tape or something where you wont leave a finger mark. This normally takes about 10 minutes depending on the temp your spraying at.
-let dry 24-36hrs and if you need to wet sand and buff then start with 1500 wet and work to 2000 then 3000 and start buffing to get that car show shine.
As for the bare tank i would spray a good direct to metal high build primer and sand it all smooth and then seal it with the KO-seal
If you run into any problems just give me a shout. Pretty familiar with HOK, PPG, Sikkens, SEM, BASF, DUPONT and a few others.
What color are you shooting and i will let you know if there are any certain way the gun should be setup or a certain way to spray it.
Good luck man and let us see your progress as you get it going.
