Me too. I keep mine stored in a zip lock freezer bag when it is not in use. They seem to last pretty well that way. I do try to keep an extra one around so I can immediately put on a fresh one when needed.

I am going to mask the upper frame off and only paint the bottom plate tomorrow. The paintable plastic will be perfect for what I want to do. I will post that too just for the sake of conversation.

Do you take her leg out first?

Yes I do. Also, she promised not to need the brace again. I was going to clean the grout in our tile floors too but she could not promise not need the toothbrush back. You can see I do try to be fair and considerate.

I use that same mask when priming in the booth and for sanding. Much more comfy than dust masks. You two please bear in mind that it does not offer protection from isocyanates. Frame is looking nice, John. I do recall you mentioning the free sandpaper awhile back. That's a substantial money saver!

Hmmmm, I was under the impression that it did. What do we need to consider changing to.

Oh I don't know that I'd consider changing anything. Those are good for particles and mist and some vapors, and your primer catalyst may not contain isocyanates. But paint hardener does.No more than you guys spray, I just think its wise to keep that in mind when your spray area is fogged up good. Keep the ventilation going to avoid heavy concentration of overspray, and spend a little time familiarizing yourself with the tech and MSDS sheet for anything you use. So you know the hazards. Against isocyanates, full face mask or hood plus full paint suit and supplied air is the only real protection.

This probably is not particularly interesting but I am following through with my leg brace flipping sistem

The brace is perfect because it does not slip on the frame but the chain will slip on it.







Once I had the frame turned over, I ran 1 1/2 inch tape around the circumferance of the lower frame flanges and and used paintable plastic sheeting to mask off the rest of the frame from overspray.









I think this has worked out really well. It has a nice factory sheen and is slick enough to look like it has lived in somebody's garage for 60 years. Show car?...No, but exactly what I set out to do.

Tomorrow I will try to clean the shop and pull the body back in. Time to start getting it ready to paint and put back on the frame.

John

That is pretty, John It does look OE-esque but fresh as a daisy. And smooth with a lot of extra o's.

I bet you are excited to get back on the body soon. This was a hurdle, congrats!

I thought this was going to be a driver? Now you are building a show car that you have to put padding on the frame so you don't put a scratch in it?

Next thing you know your chin is going to be in the air.

God bless the internet. I had never heard of the paintable sheeting. One of the guys on the SPI forum posted a picture of a car ready to paint with the doors and trunk opening taped with it. Not a wrinkle anywhere that could trap dust. I could not wait to buy some and have really fallen in love with it. As you know it is the absolute perfect product if you want to paint your door jams with the body.

Just in case there is anyone here who does not know what Mike is referring to. The paintable sheeting is a product that is treated so paint sticks to it. DO NOT try that with hardware store sheeting. The over spray will blow off and you will have the biggest mess of your life.

BTW, it was less than $30 for 16x350' roll. (store brand)

Must have been Dusty's tape job you seen.

Where does one get this magic plastic?
