    Thanks Sixdogs. But sometimes I go overboard. Years of learning from Dad and honing that skill rebuilding wrecked helicopters! Because you may never get a chance to redo your work. Redos are harder to fix than doing the job right the first time anyway!

    Friday I installed a new Oil/Water Separator and made a wood frame I could move over the disc.-3-29-13-air-oil I put plastic over it to keep the pollen and dust falling down from the ridge vents.

    Saturday afternoon I started painting. The white suit really did a good job protecting me, but I could not move around easy on the creeper.-3-30-13-painting-creeper The air hose was the only pain I had in painting. The siphon cup gun worked way better than expected. I had no problem spraying overhead. This gun has a small clear tube that goes from the cup vent hole up into the arch that holds the cup's lock mechanism. So no drips. However, there was a paint leak somewhere that had my rubber gloves covered in paint overspray. I did have some problems with the straight fitting off of the air hose with the disposable filter added. Next time I will install a hose swivel.-3-30-13-paint-gun

    I had put my floor fan in the doorway and closed the door up to the fan and only had my side door open. This seemed to work well moving overspray out. I added the hardener to the paint and had no problems with it's use, along with the recommended reducer.

    I had the tongue hanging from my loader out in the sun and it was hard to a lite touch at dark.-3-30-13-painted-tongue I started painting it at 4:30. So 3 hours went by. The paint instructions says wait 24 hours to work hard with it I had no problems with runs either. Only way I could get a run was to stop fanning the gun and spray in one spot..............which I didn't do.

    I went ahead and used $15 of thinner to clean the gun. So I'll use it again then toss it. I also mixed too much paint and wasted about a quart, while about 1.5 quarts are still in the can.
    hugs, Brandi

    Now that is a professional looking job. Great paint coverage and excellent prep work with nothing left to chance.

    Sixdogs,
    Thanks a bunch!
    Hahaha. I had to laugh. I forgot tack rags and had to wipe it down with shop towels. I ran out of them and had to use paper towels out of my kitchen. The towels would leave little specs all over where rough spots are in the metal. So I just wiped down the top and painted.
    I could not believe how that paint sprayed and didn't "stack up" and run. Great paint.
    hugs, Brandi

    Thanks John. The secret of a neat shop is having 3 stalls just through a sliding side door full of stuff that litters a shop up. That and a neat junk pile out back! I hate working it tight spots, so my work area is always clutter free. I guess years of dealing with FFA inspectors trying to justify their jobs by writing up untidy hangars finally paid off!
    Thanks for the nomination!
    hugs, Brandi
