** Paint in colder weather ..... I just made some runs on a bumper cover ....I thought it was good to shoot another coat but, just because it appears to be tacked off --- WAIT at least twice as long as you normally would ...... Well, that & you should stick you a brand of paint that you usually use & your used to... DONT let people buy the paint that you recommend -- Exspecially when they buy some other cheap ass stuff... Buy it yourself -- do it right .... NOT LIKE ME :0

i also found out the hard way when the owner buys the paint, i painted a boat once and they bout this cheap ass spectra paint, it looked like shit, he nevere bought any clear for it either and the paint was a flat white. it was pure crap, as for the painting in the cold i have a wood stove i fire up a few hours before i paint so it gets real warm in my garage, then i put the fire out, spray, then use a propane heater after i have sprayed

*** I feel ya on that one...... If you know what you want for a paint you should buy it ... But As from a painters view -- Buy what your used to ......... I rarely ever do single stage paints & I dont like it when it is some really cheap ass shit ---- NASON....... WHat the hell is that .... A version of the cheap line of Dupont....... Now, ChromaBase is good stuff........ I like the color match from it .... Really good....!!!! I took the job to make a quick $100 ... I didnt know that the guy went & bought some really cheap ass paint instead of what i recommended.....

NO, This is a cheaper version of that ....... It is some rejected paint line from nason... I called the paint store where it was bought --they said it was some paint that was An even cheaper version of it......... It wasnt all that cold in my garage... I have a house furnace in there & it gets to 80 degrees pretty easily .. The thing was that I turned on the exhaust fan & all the warm air went out the garage....... SO what i did was just put the cover over the fan & warmed it up in the garage & finished the other bumper cover ---- Good too i might add!!!!!!!!!!! Even for this cheap ass shit -- I am impressed ... This paint was $20+tax for a GALLON......THat is cheap shit.... :0


*** Yes , I am a BONEHEAD but, I can tell you this.........

------ DONT paint in the cold unless you have MORE HEAT.....!!!!!!!!

---- At least 60 degrees or so........ ;) AT LEAST THAT!!!!!
