    Yep. Before they banned me lol. Seems if you don`t use the products they like then you get banned. Very professional in some of those groups.

    great work on the repaint. that is something id love to dabble with on a small scale in the future.
    sad to here you were banned from an FB group for something so trivial. I have left plenty of them due to the overall immaturity level of many of the members.

    I honestly can’t believe the quality of the work you provide essentially working out of your garage. You’re amazing. If I were to attempt it in my garage, there would be dust particles and insects stuck in the surface, kitty fur and perhaps even paw prints.

    Excellent looking work!

    How do you keep the dust, dirt from settling on the wet paint?

    A good way to keep dust down is to of course, have a clean floor to start with, and then wet it all down right before you start using the spray gun..

    Yeah I always sweep before I spray. Also just before clear I wet the floor down. I still get specks of trash in it that I sand and buff out. It`s all part of the process.

    xtremekustomz- Gee, you`re doing a lot of bumpercovers!

    That one looked like it might`ve been a bit flexible, especially once all the grilles were out...any issues with that?

    For HALF PINT?!? Gee...noting that, heh heh, it`s been almost *forty years* since I bought any (to-spray) auto paint...that DOES sound really pricey to me!
