I spent a lot of time on the SPI website learning about painting. If you're an amateur painter like me - or even if your more experienced - I don't think there's a better place to learn about automotive paint. I'm pleased with the outcome for a garage paint job. With luck I might have the car ready to go in the spring.
Beautiful car, and great paint work! I love the '64-'67 Fairlanes and Comets.

123pugsy Hope to see it done but Spring is a lot closer than you'd think. You'll have to hustle.

Friday into Saturday is predicted to get 6-10" of snow, so it's tomorrow or next week and the management wants it out of there to make room for the next job...

Damn...any colder and I may have to put the shorts away for the season........

I sure don't envy you Mitch. That front coming through is supposed to take it down to 22f with a high of 39 here. That sounds cold to us but we will just have to remember to count our blessings.

No kidding, wish I had this in the garage, if I had the room one would be there tomorrow. It comes with nice locking 3" caster wheels. It's model number HOLT5202BJ1/307723266

Well, you just found my wife's fabric cutting table. She wants a taller surface and this adjusts to 39" with the feet. I'll be picking it up this week...

Then theres this side of the protect and serve story. That young man who got blown up was in a group who chanted "kill" before setting out across Fallujah armed to the teeth. But...

The guy at the shop who got beat up by police finally came back to work. I got the firsthand scoop today and it was bad bad. Spitting blood for ten weeks bad. Worse than the time I saw the ninja suit machine gun cop stomp on a guy's head while holding muzzle to face yelling. He was in posession of stolen property. Our guy wasn't charged with anything and the call was disturbing the peace. The thing that stuck with me most is something the lawyer said about just one pic going to a news outlet is something the authorities will avoid at any cost. I wondered if thats taxpayer money he'll get paid out of. Never mind how the money means nothing to a victim.

I was thinking it was all about marketing and that Husky (or what ever the companies name is that produces Husky) simply had a deal with Home Depot toll manufacturing the white ones for them at the reduced price. But now you are posting a link to a Home Depot web site with the same higher priced black ones! WTH?

I know it's a marketing game, and I don't understand them all of course, but this is every odd!

Brian

The link I posted is a Canuck HD site and the closest thing to yours. They don't sell your model here. We pay more and get a shorter unit and no drawers.
Most things up here are almost twice the price now.
