I liked the way all those plus (+) signs just sprayed out. I think clovers would be a better design though.

I wonder if a guy could do the same with Co2..
He could toss a chunk of dry ice in his pressure pot and as it dissolved, it would pressurize the inside of the pot and he could spray away... (I think you'd need a big pot though....)

Is Co2 as flammable as nitrogen? I read somewhere that it was..
(all kinds of disinformation out there....cain't never be too sure of what ya read)

Nitrogen sure would be good for spraying filled polyester surfacing primers..That tape peel test was something else...

I wonder how the final hardness of the paint is affected, doesn't the action of spraying paint have a tendancy to mix oxygen in and hasten cure and cured hardness levels?

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
