Painting a "Drummer's Lounge" sign we fabricated
…….looks like I need some white paint on the booth walls...
Doesn’t have to be fancy, but many of the postings have shown a lot of ingenuity. Gives me new ideas. Thanks. I built a poor-man’s spray booth in part of my garage with 2 x 4s, plastic, a few box fans, and some household air filters. It’s worked out ok so far.
Last week I painted some o/t rally wheels with wheel masks I got from Eastwood in the last century.
Free style two tone taping along hand drawn line. Roller job. True value rust x paint.
How it looks.
First ever paint job:
I have to paint the faces.
I don't know if anyone has mentioned or tried this, but it's a way to make narrow masking tape for taping around tight curves. Lay the tape along a yardstick, letting it overhang the width you need. (You can cut it as narrow as 1/8")
Turn the yardstick tapeside down and slice along the edge with a razor blade.

Converted my lift into a quick paint booth to spray some parts. A couple tarps and drops.
posted by @Model A Gomez , great idea.
piece of chassis leg? excellent
That deserves a Major Award!
adapted the rack to paint this rolls tank. brackets are ugly but it works perfect
have a very picky customer who wanted some head lights painted. I stole an idea from this thread and used a couple plant cages to hold up the lights. I taped them down and wrapped them in paper.
for the head light rings I traced out the inside lip on the paper, then put three equally spaced 3" screws just to the inside of the line to hold the rings off the surface.
Got a few more pieces painted.
That would be me!
Nice work for a relative! They should look good on my roadster. A Big Thanks, TB
always good to use a matching shade sealer under the paint. tinting primer/sealers is a great way to achieve the color your looking for.
this is what I ran into today. WTF?
Maybe it changes color when it dries.
