Step 5: Priming and Painting
1000 or 2000 grit Water Sandpaper
Protective Eye Glasses
Put your gloves, protective eye glasses and respirator. Apply sandable primer to all the parts (2 layers)
Let it dry at least 30-60 mins.
Fill the bucket with water. Wet the part with the sponge and sand the parts using the 1000 or 2000 grit Water Sandpaper. Sand it trying to do not remove the primer at all (if you remove some primer at the edges it's ok).
Now you can start with the fun stage, where all your work will get shiny and awesome.
Paint all the parts with chrome paint, you'll be impressed of how good it looks.
Apply 2 coats letting dry at least 30 mins between coats.
The chrome is the base color in order that you'll have a metallic finish.
After 24 hours you can continue with the gold coat, paint all the gold details and parts. There's no problem if you paint accidentally some area that should be red.
Wait another 24 hours and cover with newspaper and masking tape areas that should be chrome or gold. Now you can apply 2 to 4 coats of the red paint depending on the intense of color that you want.
Let the parts dry for at least 3-5 days, and now you are ready to assembly and wear them!
