If I do need to ask you for one, I'll send you a brick in an airmail envelope for you to hang on your wall, (a brick is a $10 note), well it was in the old "pounds, shillings & pence days downunder.

I know Mike (Deadbodyman) quite well, for him it's "just another brick in the wall". Sorry...couldn't resist...it was way to easy.

Cool jester Mike.

Thats the first time I have seen a store bought fuzz picker. We have always used porcupine quills, really fine grabby barbs on them, they work awesome. If you have Porkys in your area find a road kill you can get a batch free..

Good one, but I rarely listen to Pink Floyd these days, as I stopped smoking that funny stuff years ago

Thanks for the tip Mike. Considering I only found paintable sheeting this month I feel like I have a head start on the dirt pick.

yeah,I got a kick out of your post about the plastic..
I remember the first time I used the plastic without any paper I didnt trust it at all but I had to use it because thats what that shop used so I learned how to reverse tape and I taped up between 5-10 cars a day using it without a hitch ,no dried paint flew off anywhere and I taped up hundreds of cars using it..The year was 1998,my daughters graduation...
I stopped doing it that way when I left that shop.I dont have any reason for not using it in place of paper it certainly has proved itself and I still buy it and use it to bag my cars before I paint but I still outline with the paper and use the paper for glass and all the normal stuff the plastic just covers the rest of the car from overspray...
I have learned something about it that may come in handy though.When I paint big stuff ,for instance an extra long conversion van with one of those glass high top roofs I always set up scaffolding and paint the roof first then mask off the roof and paint the sides...Using paper even 36" is a mother of a tough joband takes a lot of tape so I use the plastic for this BUT the "paint this side" does NOT go against the fresh paint on the roof,it just might stick to the fresh paint and make a mess...I also use it as car coversfor every car in my shop the only car without a cover is the one being worked on that day....to help hold the plastic down I really like using those old magnetic signs you stick on your door, I just cut the sign into 1" strips,works like a champ...Welcome to the 21st century, I dont feel like such a caveman any more.

I've been using the Dirt Pic for years, works great.
Just remember you can't wipe it off with any kind of rag
or anything or you'll destroy the little barbs on the end.
Just swish it around in some thinner and shake it dry.

I saw that tool hanging on the wall behind the counter at the paint store, but for $25 I passed on it.

When I got home I dug through my scroll saw blades and found a spiral tooth blade.
I cut it off at about 2" and mounted it in a pin vice used for small number drills.
It works quite well, but I have no idea how it compares to the real McCoy. The scroll saw blade is .032 dia. and has around 46 teeth per inch.
They sell for less than $5 for a dozen of them.

Probably available in Aussie land too!

Buy Olson 46100 Universal Scroll Saw Blade 032 x 0 x 46 TPI at Woodcraft


Just had a thought, don't havea pin vice? no problem, just take a small blob of body filler, put some into a straw, insert blade, let harden, presto built in handle!
