I have tried spraying but got very iffy results.   Always dust and stuff you never see or notice attracted to the drying paint.

Although I have a reasonable gun I will stick to aerosol size jobs.  I did take a photo or two of his progress so over the holiday I will post them and some I took at local car shows.  The local Studebaker Club has some very nice, restored vehicles.   Now you know where the good ones went!

Funny you should mention Studebaker's. Arkansas is not a place you find very many of them. Last Summer My wife, and I were out on the Bike, and lo and behold there under a tree sat a 1955 Speedster! Sun Valley Yellow and Hialeigha Green. Identical to the one my father had back in the early 60's. I was blown away! As I haven't seen one except in pictures, in probably 30 years.  The owner was most gracious and let me look at it, It had been restored many years ago and was showing it's age But what a beautiful Car!!!

Well guess what?  The painter still has the TRAIMLER but has got it to 3rd primer coat.   It is so smooth and will look $ but I just want it back.  I have missed 3 or 4 shows so far so I am a BIT cross about the delays.
I will continue to nag him, not that he takes that much notice.   Keeping you all posted.

Hey Man I was beginning to think a "Croc" got you or something? Sucks to hear you're still trying to get "Traimler" painted, you last posted about it in December! Well good luck. I hope it comes out great.
