glue on primer or paint
« on: February 06, 2018, 01:20:57 pm »
Hello. I'm wondering about how to attach parts that have already been primed and/or painted.

I watch some of Lou Dalmaso's videos and it appears he primes all the parts before assembly (in most cases I've seen to date). My question is how would one then attach the parts that need going together?

Typically one removes paint from the gluing surfaces, by scraping ir sanding.   One can also mask the  gluing surfaces before painting.

Yep, you need plastic against plastic for the best glue/cement work.

A little bit of acetone, used sparingly with a cotton swab or what not, can also remove paint on glue joints.

I try to mask off the mating surfaces prior to painting.
