We begin with the application of the new graphics, followed by the body paint, as this method proved to be much easier. Over wet-sanded Ko-Seal II metallic primer, Patrick applied two coats of White Ko-Seal II primer sealer, four medium wet coats of white base, and four medium wet coats of Snowhite Pearl to cover the area that would ultimately contain the graphics. Air pressure was 10 psi for the HVLP gun, a 1.5 tip was used, and the recommended trigger pull was 50-75 percent. Patrick held the gun approximately 6 inches from the surface, and overlapped each pass 50 percent for all materials except the Snowhite Pearl, which he overlapped 75 percent. A flash time of 5 to 10 minutes was allowed between individual coats of each product, and one hour of dry time was allowed before progressing to the next product.
