X2 on what Dennis said, painting the hood laying down is fine...you will get better results on doors painting them the way they appear on the car. Reason being is that it's always more tempting to shoot for shine or to lay on more product when a panel is laying flat...with metallic's, often that's all they need to be off just a bit...and it can be noticeable.

Thanks for the explanation guys. I remember reading widetrack mentioning about how he writes all the details down on each job from another thread.

I've been lurking a lot reading up on all the tips you guys give. I still have a lot to learn. I don't think I do too bad though for only painting every few years.

Btw, I love the green on the Camaro. I have a soft spot for green for some reason. I have to say the blue is nice on mr4speed's Camaro too.

How come you can't access the hard drive?

Have you tried an IDE/SATA (no, NOT like the gun!) adapter? Take your hard drive out of the computer, hook it up with this to your current computer and you access it just like an external hard drive.

Thanks Josh...I've actually had the hard drive out of the original computer for quite some time...when the original computer died...it literally died, as in smoke everywhere. Don't know why but it did. I've had 2 guys so far come over and try and get the old hard drive to give up the information inside without any luck (these guys have pocket protectors and white tape holding their glasses together...one guy works as a computer tech at a local shop...and they're stumped...LOL).

I've been given an address where I can send the hard drive too and I hear that this company can bring virtually any hard drive back to life but, no guarantee...but, what I need to decide is, how much do I spend to get the pictures back....with all I have invested so far, do I spend more? I have a lot of these pictures in hard copy in my files of the builds so it would more for convenience than necessity.

The guys have tried the equipment that you show on the link....As I've mentioned...I am a "Techtard", that's why I brought in the computer guys....but hey...my Email has been working somewhat for about a week...I'm happy about that...LOL

I lurk around reading everything I can about engines, transmissions, interior, suspension...this site is amazing with all the knowledge and good people willing to share.

I have found that keeping detailed records takes little time and the rewards are well worth the effort. I've had people come back 8 years after the build and even longer needing a repair for whatever reason and all the information is documented. If I only did several 1 or 2 cars...not a big deal but, try and remember every code, every formula for every blended flame job, every graphic that been covered with a mid coat...impossible.

As I mentioned in my previous post...I had a major computer failure a few years ago...I still have everything in hard copy, the customer has a copy...where I screwed up is I should have had a back up electronic file...Now I do...LOL

Thanks Ray for the kind words. Will let this sit a couple days or so, in the mean time will get the doors and deck lid sprayed. Then it will be time to put all the sheet metal on then lay out the stencil and start all over again. Here are a few more pics.

Excellent attention to detail Dennis...so often when doing any type of mounting point where an area will be covered with another piece of sheet metal like a fender or the bottom of a rad support, the prep work in those areas that will be hidden suffers...I hate that and obviously, so do you, great job on making all the areas shine Dennis.

The floor is often made wet paint booth pr not, no matter how hard you try, there will be dust in the environment, wetting down the floor helps minimize this. House keeping is extremely important, not just your painting area but, your air hose, your paint gun and especially yourself. Now with water born base coats, house keeping is even more important, if you put water on the floor of a booth when shooting water born base coat...the base will take as long as the floor to dry.
