Best to wait until the paint gun is cleaned to start though...
Love that color!!
Looks like model A dutchess blue! One of my fav’s
Damn buddy, Nice work! I am interested in the shop vacs role in the painting process. I wish I lived closer, I'd come over for a celebratory toast!
You're too clean to have been painting! I hope that's a good bourbon!!
The buzz has begun, looks like a fun color...
I am also a fan of the color! Nice to see some different ones. Back in the old days the buzz came during the process!
Looks great. I always have a few belts after painting, mostly to forget.
Paint fumes must cut down on the cost of bourbon!!
Well deserved Hamber...
Anyone who has done any painting would know what the shop vac is for
I like the daylight coming through the garage door to help see the coverage.
As a matter of fact.... where is the garage door??
Even my wife likes the color. High praise indeed!
Ya did good.
Nice color. I dig the tail pan.
Any detailed dash pics?
Bullet Bourbon. Pretty good for the price!
How did the $36 paint booth work? Looks like it was a success.
You're looking right through them. Tempered, smoked glass doors.
I just left it set there rather than move it. Mostly I use it to clean the ash from the stove, but it's handy for sweeping dust up out of the car before painting too. It must have worked, this is as dust-free as any I've ever done, and, NO BUGS!
It worked a trick. I will say I need another box fan for exhaust. It got pretty cloudy, I used two pairs of cheater glasses (they don't like being cleaned with lacquer thinner...), but it was dust free, easy to heat today in the sunshine, and I think it had enough static charge to attract dust to the plastic sheet instead of the body. It worked pretty well, I'll do a better one when I paint the T'bird.
I thought that might be it. I did see the divider 'bars' but I wasn't sure if that meant screens.
When it's dark out, can prying eyes see more than you want them to?
By the way, I agree with all the compliments. Nice car..... nice paint (color and finish)...... nice way to chase the fumes.
It's surprising, even at night it's almost impossible to see, other than that the lights are on. If the lights aren't on, it's almost like mirrored glass. In daylight you can't see in at all.
Who's the old guy in the pics? I know it can't be you because you have to be wearing red and blue tights with a flowing cape with a big S on your chest!
Damn good job! Can't wait to see all the bright work bolted back to it, it's gonna be blinding!
The world's most interesting man said, "I don't usually paint cars, but when I do, I drink bullet bourbon" looks great Brian
x5 Looks really good!
Here ya go.
And super cool
I don't remember what you mentioned for using PPE, esp breathing. & do you(or others) have issues w/the paint dust n fumes after they're exhausted? Eventually, I need to get a-painting, & from everything I've read, the additives/hardeners/activators are highly toxic. I'm aware of problems w/exposed skin & lung issues,(using a paint suit, nitril gloves, & respirator w/correct cartridges) - I don't need any more physical problems. If you're using a fresh-air system, where're you pulling the air from? Seems to me, that just about anywhere the wind blows - or could swirl - would also carry the fumes right thru into the fresh-air-machine's intake? Would appreciate thoughts. TIA.
