    I’m glad I ran into this thread, I’m actually painting my car this weekend, well about 90% of it. I will definitely fill everyone in on my setup/ progress and how it turned out.

    Just saw this now- sorry man, never been good at staying in on threads.......... No, I am not a chemist..........just another jerk with lots of experiance.

    Yes, I am a professional painter...........more like a professional phuckup.......... but yeah................. I know this stuff way better than I wish I did.

    Ive been doing it for about 18 years total. Ive bounced back and forth between the frame machine and the booth depending on what I can stand at the given time.

    If you dont see what I am saying about the threshold, then I am afraid we are beyond reason here.

    The absolute hardest part about painting is the prep process. Any idiot can use a spray gun, but getting the car ready to be painted is not always a walk in the park. Improper prep can ruin a very expensive paint job.

    To be more clear: to simply prep a car is not hard, but to get it near perfect for a quality job is hard.
