Thank you john, I hope you get to that point where you get to paint. I want to see that beauty come back to life

I will get a picture of one of my exhaust fans tomorrow.
My paint booth was cheap $10 bucks in visqueen. There was still overspray all in my booth, my fans kept the overspray from coming out when I was going in and out swaping out parts. The booth was a little tight and the over spray was all over my drop cloth, all over my new guns and all over me. The bottom of my boots are coated in epoxy primer and paint . My drop cloth kept on getting stuck to the bottom of my feet and it was getting very frustrating.

I did have on a poopy suit and was wearing a respirator. I could not have done it like that without my exhaust fans.

Will I do it again like this? yes, i have no other way and it was cheap.

If I end up with a good powerhead on my Mark 58 I will have that painting job ahead of me. You did a nice job. I would like to see those exhaust fans in your ceiling.

Man am I beat!:tired: that was a lot of work....two coats of epoxy primer, two coats of urethane.
This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. I am glad I did it, a lot of prep work too.

That parts came out looking okay for a green horn... some runs and some mess ups. definitely not professional but I'm happy.:biggrin:


Here is a picture of my paint booth in the background. I stapled visqueen to the ceiling, made a door and took the parts in and sprayed. I had two exhaust fans in the ceiling. Not to bad, I don't think I have any over spray on anything.

I think you will be happier with that set up I see your heater in the background do yourself a favor wipe any dust That maybe on it off of it before you prime or paint so if it kicks on it will not throw dust on your newly painted parts

Alright here is what I came up with after my Charlie Brown Christmas tree fail... Thanks for the suggestions and comments.

Up close in the picture is where I will spray one part at a time. After spraying I can take the part off and hook it back up at the far end for drying. All parts are chest high "nice and comfortable height".

That's why you do this stuff while she's not home. Not that I've ever had to frantically scrape melted plastic out of the oven or anything... ;)[/quote]

15x10 Mopar steel rims just barely fit in the oven . . . . just saying . . . . . and don't forget to air out the kitchen.
