P Day ---A day that will live
« on: September 10, 2009 - 09:54:17 pm »
    9-9-09   P-Day (paint day),  a day that will live on in infamy !!!!!(for me anyway)    :woo:    OK  a bit dramatic but after starting this liitle project last summer and then spending what seems like a thousand hours on it this summer I finally shot some color on this pig.   I have never done any body work before so this is a big step. I am just jambing it and will have to decide if I am going to have a professional spray the outside or attempt it myself.  Fron all the little dust nibs and nats ect. that ended up in the clear shooting it in the garage is not the best option.  Here are a couple of pics. for now.  Hope to have the rest done by the end of the month.  Nothing like shiny fresh paint to get the excitement going again.  Doug

Looks good keep up the good work.  Dust and nats are not all that bad to deal with. 
Got a pretty good start on my M46 optioned Barracuda restoration but now it is on hold till I can gather more funds.  Still need a few parts for it.  SIU Graduate 75 AAS Automotive Tech, 94 BS Advanced Tech Studies, 1997 MSED Workforce Education and Development

 :2thumbs: Sure looks like your doing OK !  When Redline painted their Chally he literally built a wooden frame covered in clear plastic to help with light. He then also installed a couple box fans with furance filters, drawing and discharging ventilation. Also watered down the floor too I beleive. I'm sure the descrption and pics have long been deleted by now of his "McGiver" paint booth, the results were great.

Hey Chris, if you see this thread give our friend the "building rights" for the garage paint booth.  :roflsmiley:  :cheers:
