again, its just me, I will nickel and dime a lot of things,, painting, including surface prep, blasting is not one of them,, its either perfect, or its not,
there is nothing in between.
I only paint on days when ambient temp is in proper range.
Haven't tried to paint car on rainy day recently.
I have sharpe desiccant system but don't use it all the time.
Typically valve it in for CC; my media lasts a long time.
I was thinking I wasted money on desiccant system since most of the water drops out in long cooling line.
Maybe I should use media when priming, etc. Couldn't hurt.
