    A little trash in it. Lots of clear so it will clean up nice. I soaked the floor to keep the fuzz down but still got a little. Not bad for shooting it in my dirty ass shop. I'm beat! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    He's good, been painting for 30 years. He has taught me a ton and he's a great guy. You can imagine how sticky everything in my shop is. Now I have this really cool model and can't wait to put it together!

    I just read this whole thread a couple of days ago I'm glad I just found it. Its so much more fun to get in on the end result than to have to wait for months of updates. :D That think is killer. And the fact that a rod of that quality was built at home, even better. Oh and piss on the glass haters.

    Is he still alive?! Clear is usually catalyzed material with isocyanates, i.e., super glue. Does great stuff to lungs unless you use a breather mask with outside fresh air supply. Beautiful job, but not worth risking your lungs.

    I really love what your are doing, great job.

    I'm waiting for the weather to warm up, so I can get the base paint on my Bel Air 57.

    In Holland (europe) it so cold, that we can skate on the rivers.

    Looks Great Turkey. I'm inspired by your Drive, Motivation and attention to detail. It will help me tremendously in my build........

    But a question from me....Is the hassle of preparing and then cleaning up your Garage now with all that clear everywhere, not to mention the extra rubbing required to get contaminents out of the paintwork worth it over hiring a Paint Booth and doing it with minimal contaminents and risk to your health?

    Man,alive! If you think that 32 Ford is a rust bucket,you would have a stroke if you saw my 33 Plymouth coupe or my 42 Dodge coupe. I even have chassis sections I have to replace that are rusted out from mouse nests.

    AND,I will probably be selling my 32 Ford 5-window coupe this summer to get the money to finish my workshop and do the 33 Plymouth. Here is a photo of the 32 the day I bought it.

    Great question, glad you asked. First, my shop is not finished so clear everywhere is ok and it's not as bad as you would think. The other side of my shop is a downdraft booth that is half finish. Second, you will get a small amount of trash in the finish (lint) even in a booth. I was blown away by how clean all the parts came out so I decided to go for it and save the money on renting a booth and shoot the body at home. Last, let me say you guys are right about covering your body. Safety is king and I always wear respirators and gloves ect. but in the past I used single stage paints and have never shot a whole car so I didn't think getting a little clear on my skin was too bad. Wrong! Never again, I'm still feeling it and my head is pounding 24 hours later. Tonight we finished the trunk lid and I was cover up! I wont make that mistake again. It doesnt seem to afect my buddy. I will load pictures tonight.

    You said he had been painting for 30 years, that means he as become accustomed to the ill side effects. I'm not Mr. safety myself, in fact not safe enough most of the time, but I know a guy that has been painting for years like that and he told me he is starting to feel the effects as far as nerves and respiratory issues.
