Today we’re going to show how we lay
some paint down here at Newman tractor! Hey we’re still working on our Terex.
We’re getting down to the final stages so now we’re taping off (taping off and
masking). You want to make sure everything is taped off tight. That way over spray isn’t getting in. It just makes the machine look so much better!
Paper over plastic any day. I know it takes a little more time, but it’ll pay
off in the end. Paper will breathe. If you use plastic it holds the solvents in and next
thing you know, every wrinkle in the plastic is on your paint. That’s why we
tape off as clean as we can and plus makes machine paint job look a lot
better. So you’ll learn some stuff back here Gus! You’ll learn all kinds of stuff!
Whey you’re using your stir sticks you wanna make sure they got Thompson
water seal on them. Because when you stick them down there if they don’t have
a Thompson water seal on them, they’re gonna start shredding apart in your paint and it’s gonna be all on your paint job. Like a wood grain in your paint job, so that’s something you’re gonna stay away from. This one aint been water sealed so we
can’t use that one! We’re getting ready to seal on our
Terex here, and as you see, we have primer spots. So what we’re gonna do is lay down a good coat of white sealer. so it’ll help us with our base coat. We’re gonna start on the front, and work our way back, as you can see we got a cross-flow booth. The air intakes at this end and the exhaust is at that. So that way me and Kenny are not fighting each other with over spray the whole job. We’ll come in with the first coat, we’ll cut everything in, then we’ll come back with coat #2. That will be our shiny coat. When you’re mixing the paint, you want to
spin it, you wanna rotate it about 25 times to the left and 28 to the right. But
the paint it’s off balance. It’s all off kilter.
Get you a level, you can buy one from the snap on guy who comes. I’m sure he comes your local shop. He has real nice levels on there for about 700
bucks. Oh my gosh! Just what I’ve always wanted! So we’re getting ready to apply our
decals to our Terex. I use 2 inch and 3/4 inch tape for guidelines to center up my
decal. We also use a soapy water solution so the decal doesn’t stick to the
panel. You can finesse it and move around and get it right where you like it. And
then take your squeegee get all your air bubbles out. That helps it adhere nice
and smooth to the panel! Y’all! You did good Guss! You’re the man!
I’m just gonna stand here, and stand tall and proud right next to ya! Yeah! Cliff you wanna do one? You’re gonna do a final touch down! Ok I’ll do it! Got that old heep done! What’s up! You can tune in at newmantractor.com and just follow our journey. But we appreciate
