    Best to wait until the paint gun is cleaned to start though... 4D4A0531-2DE1-497B-8B59-DA935B86A374.jpeg 3DDBE5E9-634A-405C-8221-97FA062C55C4.jpeg

    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!!

    Looks great. I always have a few belts after painting, mostly to forget.

  12. I like the daylight coming through the garage door to help see the coverage.
    As a matter of fact.... where is the garage door??

    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! :p

    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.

  21. 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!:D:D:D:D

    Damn good job! Can't wait to see all the bright work bolted back to it, it's gonna be blinding!
     
  24. The world's most interesting man said, "I don't usually paint cars, but when I do, I drink bullet bourbon" ;) looks great Brian :D

    Hey, Brian;
    Nice!
    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.
    Marcus...
