Paul, I liked your paint booth. Looks quite like the one I put up in the one bay in my garage when I'm ready to paint something. I use a pump sprayer to wet the plastic and the floor before painting and never have a dust problem. I also like to do things myself (mostly out of nessesity) , but like Clint Eastwood says, a man has to know his limatations.

Paul,

You make that look WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too easy. Which I know from my own experiences, it ain't.

Great pics and I love the creative paint booth. I'm just way too lazy to try it myself. I figure I'll start off with something small...

Not as easy as it looks

Logan,
It was actually fairly easy. Maybe that's why it is not perfect. The three most physically demanding things that I did in the 9 month resto process were 1. Floor pans- burned about 1/8 of the skin on my body, doused my face in gasoline by accidently cutting through the gas line, burned both retinas with insuficient welding glasses. 2. Rear end replacement- Try lying in a stone driveway and bench pressing a 9" center section, then get the first nuts started with the hand that is not holding the rear in place. 3. Prep sanding- Spent two and a half days hand sanding through 5 layers of guide and build primer. After that stuff, the paint room and spray job were a walk in the park.
LOL

Hey Paul I know about changing those 9" pigs firsthand. When I was still racing we would have to change one every time we went to a different track. Sometimes 3 times a weekend. No wonder my back still hurts all the time even now. MM
