A foretaste of a feast to come.

The project is a Titan Sidewinder that was in an accident.

The frame was sent out and professionally straightened and re-welded. This gave the owner a good excuse for a completly new custom paint job. That post will come in the future.
For now, let's focus on th frame.

I started by sanding and feathering all the edges from grinding and welding.

I used body filler to smooth out the welds in the obvious areas.

I plugged and masked off any holes, so primer, paint and clear coat wont fill in threads etc.
Everything was sanded, feathered out, and scuffed for tooth (adhesion).

The frame was then primed.
Then the primer was all sanded smooth as a baby's bottom.
(Notice my shop helpers)
There was 2 cats out here too, but the second ran back into the house before I could snap off a picture.
Straining the paint after the frame was blown off, wax and grease removed, and tack clothed.
Spraying the basecoat
Base coat applied
Clearcoat applied
Bright and shiny. Close up showing how nice smoothed out welds look.
Hard to see the paint overspray in my Beam & Coke.
Now that's just extra flavor for a High Life Man.
