The number of hours I have spent researching the painting process has been amazing – and I’ve not painted anything yet! Over the past several months I have spoken with several wonderful men who either professional painters or hobbyists with excellent painting skills. The quality of their work is outstanding. I’m currently scheduled to do some practice-panel painting later this week with the professional. Through those conversations I have learned about the different types of paints (Single Stage vs. Base-Coat/Clear-Coat), selecting a paint brand (PPG), and finally the actual design and colors. I know now why people are afraid to jump into this part of the build because there are so many new things to learn before you can start.
