The Amazon welder arrived last week so I finished the welding. I realized I forgot a couple of other things so it took a little time. Everything I ordered arrived on Saturday afternoon so I only had that evening to work. The lighting sucked but I managed. The welder was sufficient for what I needed it to do, just dirty being FCAW rather than gas. It rained later, and I need daylight for paint so primer will be next weekend and paint the following weekend (I don't work on it on Sundays).

I've never been accused of being patient. Primer was applied last night.

Can't tell exactly but it looks a bit uneven if a few areas. I would spray on a guide layer of paint and sand it down, but your call.

It looks like that because it was still wet. I saw a spot I need to touch up this morning, otherwise it looks good. If I see some drips I'll sand them off. Also the shadows are bad from multiple lights.

Yeah I knew it looked off but that's why I was suggestive more than anything else. Still, it's nice to see some people continue with their project

i want to get paint done, then floors and brake and fuel lines so that I can put it back on the roller skate. After that the progress will feel better because I don't have to disassemble again.

As promised, a picture of my 5ft paint job:

1.75 qts of single stage "bright green," plus one rattle can for hard to reach areas. Only 35psi to limit overspray cuz I'm cheap.
