Got the SEM ColorCoat in the mail today wich I'm using to paint my very scruffy doghouse. Since I couldn't really tell on the computer screen what color I needed I got two; Dark Tan and Light Oak. I got the advised prep and bonding set as well.

The wife was still at work, the kids were in front of the TV, and the sun was still shining so I gave it a go. Grey Scotchbrite scuffing, cleaning with cloth and water, plastic prep and adhesion promotor all went on.

After color testing the best match was the light oak, color was actually pretty close, but the one spray can didn't cover the doghouse entirely, so what should I do ? Order another one or bring in the other can ? Right, I have little patience and used the other color rolleyes

This was the first time that I had a glance at my engine as well ! Still looks pretty stock to me, even some thingies I've never seen before, lotsa wires and cables too.. crazy

Anyway; the second spray can covered the doghouse nicely but I could tell the color was way off...after dinner the thing was dry and I put it back, COLOR MISMATCH OF THE MONTH !

But I think I just tell people I wanted it this way, custom !

While I'm taking a second look at the pics it kinda looks like a port-a-potty frown

Looks good. A nice little airbrush mural there and a wood console, it would be sweet.!
