Paint Party???

So I'm ready to paint my track bodywork, but I don't really have anywhere I can do it. I'm just going to do a rattle can paint job. I was wondering if anyone else is setting up a make shift paint booth that I can mooch off of? Let me know. i'll bring the beer.

It's spray can. Just do it outside. It's going to be warm. Just lay some boxes or paper out and do it in your garage.

spray it outside like he said. it makes the most sense on a low budget blast job that the finish no matter what will not be perfect.

Problem is there is no where to do it near me. I can't in my garage because it's a community garage in my building. there is not where I can paint outside near me without getting arrested. Shit they don't even sell spray paint in the city because it's banned.

Thanks for the offer Ian. I may take you up on that if no one else is painting. If someone else is and I can just do it with them, that might be easier.

Get off your ass and get them prepped. I would like to get mine done by the end of February. Would that give you enough time slacker?

I need to fit mine first, since you are comfortable doing that you can gimme a hand with it, then we can paint afterwards.

It's a pain, but I can help. You should plan on a day or two for fitting. Do you have DZUS fastners yet? If not I have a good person to order them from. Maybe next week in the evenings we can work on it.

Ok. I'll hit you up when I get back in town next week bobby.

Ian, maybe all 3 of us should paint together. It might be easier.

Get all of us to paint at once. I can try to seal off the vents so we can get the best high out of it.

One more reason the city sucks...

Watch out. Bobby likes finger paints.
