LOL here you go:

http://chris66dad.tripod.com

There are tabs on the top of the pages for all of the work we did on "The 66".

My 15 1/2 year old son (then) "found" the car that had been parked in a field since 1977. He bought it for $300 and I promised him we would rebuild it together. 2 1/2 years later he drove it to to his Senior Prom.
A win for Father~Son projects...

Good Luck and BE Safe
Ron

Things I learned

Thanks deadbodyman for the kind words. It has been a fun project.

This was my first real paint job I have done on a car. I shot my car with primer in the 70's to make it all one color but that is it.

I guess this is where I do my Rah Rah speech about IF you want to paint and IF you have the time and IF you have a place and IF you want to put in your time LEARNING before you pick up the gun, it is something that can be done with good results. There are a lot of IF's there...

I spent months here asking questions and reading as much as I could. You guys here are the best. You took this newbie under your wings and answered all the questions I asked without trying to make me feel dumb or build yourselves up. I owe all of you a big thank you again.

Just be really honest with yourself before you decide to do it.
Do not think you can paint your car for $300 in 1 weekend. It will not happen. Paint because you really want to and listen to the Pro's here when they give you advice. They are craftsmen and artists all rolled into one.
I have a huge amount of respect for the guys who can do it and do it well.

But most important, no paint job is worth making yourself ill. Wear protective clothes, gloves and get a proper respirator or supplied air system.
Your safety should be number one.

Good Luck and Be Safe
Ron

why not use exhaust fans they use in grain bins.grain dust is explosive when at the right levels,these are explosion proof.and can be bought at any fram supply store.i have worked in the electrical trade for many years,and have installed many explosion proof devices,they are not cheap.ridged pipe,fixtures switch boxes,twist lock recepticles and plugs,and chico to stuff into the pipes to seal then off.you also have to watch the lel's (lower explosive limits)if they are just right boomto low of to high no explosion.

I agree with DB the health hazards with a home paint job are far more serious, and of concern than the possibility of a paint explosion.
