It's probably not that much different than what was used on Model Ts 100 years ago.

I love my Ruger its unbelieveably accurate ,After shooting a few holes in the target,I stick the empty shells in the holes of the target then shoot the shells out (its more fun then just shooting at a target) Anyways let me know if you need to know how to fix holes in your car next...Glad to see you take gun safty seriously....I hope Santa brings you a compressor and a PAINT gun because you may just be a natural born painter to get halfway good results doing things that way.I cant wait to see what you can do with the proper tools and materials...

i love my s&w 4566 this is at 25 yards

not good enough to shoot empty shells out of the target just yet but im getting there.my first round is always low though working on getting that corrected.
dont mind the .22 holes in the target those were from my gf

i wish i could spray the car myself but living in an apt thats really not an option

i do like her lc9 so easy to conceal vs my full size .45 not to mention how much lighter it is, i already told her i may have to borrow her handgun to carry for a few days to see how much i really like it to see if im going to buy one for myself though if i did buy a new carry gun it would prolly be a ruger sr9c or sr40c. the lc9 is just a tad to small to be very comfortable in my hands but its still fits my hands well enough

i got pics of my bumper cover i need to repair but i cant find the stupid cable for my camera so i can post them. i have a big hole that somone cut out for a lil hitch on the back of the car.. what do u guys use on plastic bumper covers bondo or fiberglass to repair holes

I sqirted my last project with approx. 55% John Deere Blitz Black 35% medium reducer and 10% extra solids activator. I used a cheap touch up gun and did it in my garage. All in all I think it turned out pretty good for a DIY job but I did spend ALOT of time highbuilding and sanding. I covered all my tools and stuff with plastic and rolled out some paper to cover the floor before I started. I painted the box and fenders then painted the cab seperately. Can`t get too much cheaper of a paint job unless you use a roller and some tremclad.[IMG]

Jim, that looks real slick. I have a truck, I was thinking of doing the same thing, it is a 56 Fargo Shortbox, was going to take Tremclad, semi-gloss back, mixed with medium speed enamel reducer, and a generic acrylic enamel hardener. I have used this very mix many times on other things, but the Blitz Black, may have the sheen I am looking for....Truck looks good, mine has red rims too....

Rusto would probably like the airless but use a small tip and move fast as those things lay down a lot of paint in a hurry..

With some practise and a very fine tip, its amazing what you can do with an airless. Id prime something or do a large piece of equipment but Im not sure Id do the finish coat of my hot rod and Ive spayed gallons of paint that way.
