I wish it was that cool here,low 80's and humid,working on roof and cant touch it,to hot.
That paint is gorgeous!
Jeff, 97 here today.. spent a good part of the day in a full paint suit, spraying undercoat in the garage... soaked in sweat when I got outta that thing.
ah, Colorado gotta love it!
JJ in TN
"(That paint is gorgeous!)"
Never ceases to amaze me... how something simple can go so wrong...
After just working 11 days straight of 12hr days, I had a couple hrs of truck time..
I had the doors ready to hit again with some epoxy which I was gonna follow right behind that with the high build...so I got the epoxy sprayed and went to cleanup the gun to spray the hb in the morning before having to go to work..
and yep I dropped the paint gun
Of course it landed on the breakable part...so I'm dead in the water ..went order a new one...and they're outta stock till the end of June...
but dang it..doesnt seem like I can get a break......well except for a broke gun
Cant you just cast a new piece,or build it out of some epoxy.You have all that spare time now.
Haha..i may have to Jeff ..
You're not contagious, are you Greg? Whatever you got, I don't want it!
I dont know what I got Ed ..but whatever it is I've had it all my life.....
I’m amazed my guns have never broken since I drop them all the time! Go German casting!
Mine must be chinese...
I dug my old kobalt gun out and cleaned it...gonna try high build with it in the morn...definitely not for paint though..only tip it has is a 1.7...
Somebody send this guy a paint gun!
Yep Johnny..need a new one....
I did manage to get some high build on the doors this morn with the ol kobalt...by the time I got done there was air blowing out of every joint on it...it hasn't been used in 15 or so yrs and I guess all the seals are dry rotted..so when I got done it went in the scrap pile
So I'm looking at new guns for sure now..
When I sprayed the epoxy the other day I shot a couple coats on the tailgate chains...
I had previously sandblasted and primed them last year.. but trying to prep the chains for paint was near Impossible ...so I blasted them again and shot them with epoxy..I had a 72hr window for painting without scuffing, so I hung them up this morn and shot some red on them with my detail gun.....and I didn't drop the gun this time..!!
Not sure how I'm gonna like the painted chains...Im gonna put a sleeve over them anyway...
I may go back later on and get the chains and brackets powder coated black...but thatll be much later
And while I had a little extra red left over from chain painting ..I took what was left and added some flattner to it and sprayed the hole plugs that go in the doors where you access the hinge bolts...I had forgotten them when I painted all the interior parts...trying to figure out how to hold them and get paint all over was a little challenge..you couldnt lay them on anything...the airflow from the paint gun would send them flying ...so I used some 1/2" PVC and the plugs snapped perfectly over the pvc... easy peasy...
Nicely done, sir.
That red sure looks good in the sun!
thank Randall...the red is a LOT brighter than it was when we did the spray test at the paint store...its supposed to be dark cherry red...and the least little bit of overcast and it gets really dark...but when the sun hits it, man its bright...not much I can do about it now though...I sure aint starting over..
I thought about sending you a gun,but mine are all the old style suction guns.I have 4 for different jobs and didn't want any broke.You will do good with a new one,ready for the next truck.
Jeff ...you send em...ill break em ...haha... I wanted to stay with the same gun I had, but I cant wait another month or more on one to get here..been looking at diff brands of guns now...
Have you looked on Ebay or Craigslist? Might be able to find the one you want.
