    The Gods honest truth is...yes, there are a lot of great painters who are young. But...... me personally, unless I have seen multiple projects by a young guy and Im Impressed... I am going to find the old guy.. who has been doing it for 40 years...

    It never amazes me ... it doesn’t matter who puts up a video, no matter the topic.. even if Jesus came back to make a video showing how he was going to save your souls, create world peace and prosper everyone, and cure all disease and pain in the world.... it would still get a thumbs down... there is no video out there with more than a coup,e dozen views without a thumbs down 👎

  • dbarnat72

    I've never painted a car. I know (knew) nothing about it. But I enjoy learning. And I especially enjoy watching and learning from master instructors who have through trial and error perfected their skills, techniques and trade over years and ESPECIALLY those who are so thoughtful and patient to put such effort into making comprehensive instructional videos and making them available to us average Joes... This instructional video is informative, comprehensive, inspiring, motivational, EXCEPTIONAL. Thank you and God bless you Jon and all those others out in IRbin land who not only put these efforts in, but are clearly proud to share and enjoy the process of teaching. You are indeed exceptional.

    He is not painting right!!! Ends and Starts of strokes or runs must be air only!!. On a start you 1/2 way let off the trigger for air only no paint. Start and Stops adds paint in those areas and excess paint build up on a start or stop causes runs and drips. This is a critical paint trick that must be done on each stroke. No drips No runs. Finger thing of Air paint paint paint Air finger thing.

    Jon this video is amazing. You impress the Hell out of me. There's something I have forgotten to do in my life and that is to become an expert at something. I am very meticulous and have an eye for detail and I strive for perfection in all that I do. I wonder if with the proper training I could have followed in your footsteps. There's nothing more worthwhile doing than achieving that accomplished feeling of pride from seeing the results of a job well done. I had my Camaro painted when I was 25. The guy that did it also did all the mechanic work before that. He'll always be my hero and I really need to make sure he knows that. Thanks for sharing this video. My hats off to anyone that can achieve this level of perfection. It's truly remarkable.

    You are meticulous about your work and the end product shows it....beautiful paint job. I can install, repair and calibrate MRI, C.T. and X-Ray equipment but there is no way in hell I would ever have the patience to get a paint job done as well as you do.....I would do all that body work and at the end see a minor low spot and either get frustrated and hit the car with a hammer making it worse or just say F**K it and move on with the job....I can't and don't do that in my line of work but if I was working on my car I see the hammer scenario being the most likely to occur. I did get pretty sick and tired of hearing the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over again but it was worth it watching how you do things......and over and over and over....lol

  • RammYou2

    Jon, I'm sold. If I can get a paint booth - my garage and an air gun. and some sanding blocks and an air compressor, I can do this. Was shocking to see you scraping the old paint off like mud. I thought you had to grind it off with sparks flying striaght up in the air. I did clear coat a model I built when I was 9 and it came out flawlessly. Sorry not joking I have a SL500 that does need this paint job.

Cheapskate customers do not want to pay I would love to have my BMW 750il V12, 1998 get her repainted Obsidian Black, the original or may be Obsidian Green ...yes ... Do you have any contact in or around London, England who can do it? Let me know at my email: amoralis123@gmail.com A great video in this Cesspool of charlatans taken over the great Media 'youtube'...Congratulations ...

Thanks to Jon for showing the process involved in such a gorgeous paint job as well as prep and finish! Wish you the best Jon! One day, I hope to be able to lay it down and have it look a fraction as nice as this was.

  • TCTerribleDog

    So much respect I have for such mastery.

  • Debbiebabe69

    Its one of the most expensive paints out there, sprayed by the guy that actually invented the stuff, in a video showing a masterclass in application.... And he skimps on tack rags! We never try to save tack rags when painting. If we are painting a series of car bumpers or car grilles (we spray individual components not whole cars), its a max of 3 bumpers or grilles per tack rag, then the rag goes in the trash. If we *were* to spray a full car, it would probably be tack one wing, throw away the rag, tack one door, throw away the rag, etc. A full car would take around ten rags per coat! But tack rags are cheap, sand down and resprays due to dust inclusions arnt....

  • MrThearnichols

    That was a great process very comprehensive I wanted more details like how did you paint the door shuts under the boot lid and did you drop the engin out to paint the engine bay. Also when you masked up the stripes you left an overlap so you don't have any primer showing but doesn't that leave a high spot along the edge? Also I noticed you didn't mask the wheel arches off but you didn't really paint them so were they left with some overspray in them and I noticed the exhaust pipe wasn't masked off and it received some paint, but don't get me wrong it was a top job I always thought that the candy laquer was the top coat on candy paint didn't realise you put clear on top a real labour of love.
