Do you have a room like this?

While I am priming and painting, I need to protect bits & pieces from scratches and overspray. My painting space is my attached garage, not my shop, and at the back of it is our home office. Much to my wife's 'delight' it has also become the temporary storage area for the primed items and not a whole lot more.

Do you have a room like this? I know some folks that have used their kitchen or bedroom, particularly if they have a fairly small house. Luckily, mine is pretty big, and with the kids grown and gone, have extra room for this kind of thing.

What did you do when you are/were building a ride????

Dave

Just added a few more pieces to the litter !!

Pushing the envelope are we?

Luckily I have enough room (barely) in the garage now. Had to build a mezzanine to hold some things off the floor.
But, years ago I helped a guy rebuild his Harley Knucklehead in his one bedroom duplex. Tranny was built on the kitchen table, torn down in the sink. The Engine was done on the coffee table while the frame stayed parked behind the sofa. Took about a month to finish it.
He obviously was single at the time.

I didn't even bring up my last car - I built most of a 351W in my camper, on the dinette table, while I was at a project construction site in Maine.

I put an addition on my shop a few years ago, that was going to be a greenhouse......................it eventually got closed in and is now a woodshop/storage area. Funny how the cars tend to take over the whole place......I have a room in my basement full of car parts.

No, I didn't have an entire room! You're lucky!
My finished painted hood, deck lid and grille shell were in our bedroom. The doors were on a friends enclosed porch, the interior was in my closet and the bench seat was considered furniture in our living room for a few months. The fenders and running boards were in my shed.

It's all back together now, but I caught hell for while there. All worth it in the end as everything remained in good shape. WHATEVER IT TAKES!

Yours will look far better when you get some paint on those primered items. .

I'M TRYING, I'M TRYING.
The weather here on the tundra of the great Northeast is not cooperating with 30 to 40 degree mornings. I have to wait until noon/60deg even to prime. Ya gotta remember that the rest of the US isn't always as warm as Texas. If nothing else gets painted, I will get the firewall, splash shields and gas tank done and get the body on the chassis, then mask it off and paint the rest in the spring. This will give me a chance to wire it over the long dark winter months as well as fix the crappy body areas.

I'm looking for a kerosene salamander to at least put some warmth into my garage earlier in the day - now that my fan is on its way to air out the fumes.

I did some primer work during the winter. We do have a winter down here in Texas, but it is only like 35-40 degrees. Had to use a kerosene heater in the garage to bring the temp up near 75, spray and get out.

I all too well aware of Texas winters - I lived in Dallas one winter - amazing drivers with an inch of snow on the ground , worked out of Houston for a while and one of my daughters lived in San Antonio for a couple of years (before she traded down for English weather ).

My bedroom looks like that. I have a complete stereo system, a capret kit, a headliner, billet mirrors, window cranks, rearview mirror, stainless door wire looms, valves, switches, grille, bumper, headlight surrounds, sound deadener, battery, compressor, and a stack of 4 18" wheels that are waiting on tires. My room is basically a walkway to my bed with a TV and a computer crammed in the middle. I wouldnt have it any other way.
