Hey ChrisM,

Not trying to bust your balls, but when you quote books and talk about schooling someone in the process it just does not make you sound credible. That is all I think we were getting at.

Welcome to the board, and stick around it is great.

One thing we all need to remember is that none of us know everything about anything. I read the posts everyday that I can to try to pick-up more knowledge from others and help when I can. There is no book or video that will actually teach everything about painting, or even you how to paint. If you have the knack or ability, practice will get you there. Some people, there isn't enough paint or time to get there. I generally try to throw out suggestions and pointers to help. Quite often, someone will respond that I am wrong. That is their choice. If it is an area that I know nothing about, I say nothing and try to learn.

Every painter has their favorite product, proceedure, and equipment. I try not to recommend a certain brand because everyone has their own experiences and opinions. Painting your own car/truck can have it's own rewards. It can also be extremely depressing when something goes wrong and the cost goes up from there.

Good Luck.

Well, if you don't pay much attention to me, you will join a long list of people including my wife and kids! :laugh: You are too kind with your praise. I make all or more of the mistakes everyone else makes - my claim to fame is that I have the patience of Job and will color sand for days to salvage a severely orange peeled paint job or spend 3 years on a complicated wood carving to get it right. Persistence pays.
