LOL...I bet your Dad came our real good...I remember back in the day when I used to indulge in a few pops while painting in my hobby shop...on cool days my flash times where measured by 2 beer...instead of 1. I hated those transparent colors that took 6 ot 7 coats...I'd run out of beer before clearing the car and had to resort to the old fashioned way to check to see if it was ready for another coat by touching the masking paper to see if it was flashed...LOL
