Default UPDATED: Asking Opinions

Yesterday I finished the passenger 1/4 panel rust fix, welded in the old emblem holes on both sides I bondo'd over 17 years ago, and fixed the tiny rust area on the drivers side 1/4 panel. Front fenders will be done next week and then I'll have to repaint those areas.

Sorry for the picture quality. I forgot the camera and had to use the one in my cell phone.

A few more, including the "before" and "after" on the passenger side.

Well that's another issue. I have no clue how I'm going to paint this and make it look right. I can paint a panel, but I've never done a patch before. Add to it that I've never used a HVLP gun. I have no idea what the best practices are with setting it up and use.

It's single stage, no clearcoat PPG enamel paint so if I mess it up i can just sand it off and try again I guess.

I don't know of any booths to rent near me so was going to mask off the car, cover everything in the garage and wet the floor so to hold down the dust, put the compressor outside and close the door.

The compressor is a Craftsman 4hp, 25 gallon.

The gun is an Ingersol Rand 210G:
1/4" inlet
Max pressure 43 psi
Ave consumption 10.5 cfm
600cc cup
1.4 mm nozzle.

I was going to scuff the entire area from the body line at top, and the crease that indents to the bumper and end forward somewhere over the top of the wheelwell opening where the area is only an inch wide.

You'll want to use the reverse tape method to get a nice clean blend into the other paint. You'll want to end it at the body line. This is a lot easier than it shoulds. WIf you want, I'll do a little How-To for ya, with pics and all of the usal A.X. step by steps.. This is how I repainted the top of my TA and blended it into the sail panels. I don't have any body lines to work with, and this method made a perfect blend. Once you color sand and polish, you'll have a perfect blend, and being white, no one will ever notice. My car is black, and no one can tell.

At this point I'll take any help I can get.

My wife's afraid I'll just up and say screw it and pull the body off the frame and start over again with a full repaint. I'm almost to that point.

Make sure you blend past the primer and inch or two, so when you wet sand and polish you dont end back into the the primer on a single stage paint.
