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... ;)

My wife would kill me if she saw me trying to put paint in the microwave:mad:

I have been keeping my primer in the house and will do the same when my paint arrives..
I also keep my HVLP guns in the house to protect them from condensation.

not sure where you are storing your paints..........(southern boys need not read this...:cookie: )......up here kept in cool condition is fine till time too spray........your paint's and primer's need too be warm before spraying....they just flow and lay better, warm......especially with HVLP........i have in the past warmed up my blend of urathane in a microwave...(for furniture).......now i have a hot box off the side of my furnace, i was never real keen subjecting my paint's to radioactive warming....
just a tip i hope helps for ya too acheive awesomness........

Thanks Neil, my spray tent is just a pop up tent like for camping. so nothing to hang from. I'm going to drape visqueen on either side of my shed. I have six powerful exhaust fans that should help with fresh air.I have 8' pipe clamps I am going to connect together and hang from the ceiling. I should be able to assembly line paint. :eck:
Paint parts on one side of the shed then slide on down the line for drying..

Marc does your paint tent have a place you can mount an eye bolt of some sort in the center......of the peak/roof.....(if its strong enough for the weight).....hang one part at a time too spray, then have a long rack (old closet rods work great).....where too hang them too dry.........wire coat hangers are your friend.........and the tent should help stop overspray all over the rest of your shop and tools....
depending on what i was spraying, if it was low too the ground, a heavy wet mopping on the floor helped keep any dust down as well.........cheers

Moe, you are right about the height, I was trying to cram everything in this paint tent I bought.

I am going to return the paint tent. After talking to you and seeing Clayton's pictures I have a better idea.

I spoke with a buddy of mine at work. my buddy said when the overspray falls down it hardens and then lands on a part, the part turns gritty because of the hardened overspray.
Round two pics to come this weekend...

Thanks

Wow a proper paint booth! I could only dream of that.

Hawk - painting in all the nooks and crannies was fun with parts even at chest height for me. Part of why I thought down low like that might be a pain.
