After spending the last several days cleaning up my bumper brackets, I set up my new Eastwood portable spray both to paint the brackets and some other small items. While the concept of the spray booth is nice, ala camping tent with spring poles, in IMHO it's to short even thought I still got the tallest one they offer. Also with the poles going on the outside of the fabric, there is nothing on the inside to hang/attach items to so you can spray them. I cut down my improvised PVC home made spray both frame but it was still to tall, I didn't measure correctly, and when placed inside the booth the booth was about 6 inches off the floor. Since I was just doing small items, I didn't bother taking it apart again and re-cutting. I'll save that for another time. But that being said, unless you under 5 foot tall you're going to have to bend over to go inside the booth and spray anything. Not exactly user friendly.
At this point I'm wishing I would have saved my money and just put new plastic around the PVC framework I built and used in the past. Moving on, after spraying the front bumper brackets, truck lid striker plate, both horns, the brackets that hold the hood pins and the front hood latch and spring, with primer I painted everything with Matrix black and then three coats of clear. The trunk lid striker plate, horns, and bumper brackets came out good, but I ended up with fish eyes on one of the hood pin brackets and the hood latch. I ran out of paint so I'll have to buy some more and then wet sand the fish eyes out of the hood pin bracket and re-paint Last night I came across a better idea on the forum for the hood latch where I think if memory severs me you paint then brown and then a metallic gray or something similar to give them a factory look. After searching all my parts bins I couldn't find the bolts to mount the front bumper brackets to the frame so I ordered some new repros. I installed the horns and trunk lid striker and it was nice to finally be able to close my trunk. Not sure if I got the horns orientated correctly. If I've got them backwards, top to bottom, please let me know.
