I've tried to read some hazard data but it's like trying to read a friggen law paper to me. Usually 3 pages of WAY too much legalese crap that I don't understand and get bored with in about 3 seconds.
What they need is a simple paragraph that states it is extremely dangerous and to cover every square inch of the body and have a damn good respirator. There, was that so difficult ?

Mitch, I have never worn a suit. I used to clean my hands with urethane reducer.

It probably is a good idea to do those things but I paint a car every 6-10 years. What I do is make sure I have a good fresh respirator, a good exhaust fan, and I now use laquer thinner instead of reducer for clean up. I always paint in long pants and long sleeve shirt with a cap on. I also store my respirator in a zip lock bag to protect the cartridges from the atmosphere.

My understanding is the 2k urethanes are the most dangerous. More so than the epoxies but breathing any of that stuff has to be a no no. Lungs, kidneys, and livers, are really precious commodities. We do need to take care of them.

I wasn't trying to stir the pot. For any catalyzed topcoat, supplied air is the only way. Don't mean we all ain't done it in a halfmask then drank from the garden hose. I got kinda sick after spraying my first complete, see below. DU hardener is pretty stout.

Nothing wrong with stirring the pot of safety...

I try to avoid using lacquer thinner to clean any skin, but the cheesy gloves I have rip easily and fall apart in about 1 minute after contact with thinner too. Yeah, I need to get some better gloves, so I don't get paint on my hands that I need to clean off...

Worked at Centerline today, so no personal car stuff. I'm going back for a couple hours in the morning. I'm swapping the complete door window and latch systems into a replacement shell and if I wait until next week to finish it, I'll never remember where all that "stuff" goes... I should be home by 11 and then try to paint the Camaro hood and extensions in the afternoon.

I have to tell you, I have HATED to wear gloves until I came across these.



These gloves change EVERYTHING! They are so strong and easy to pull off and on, there is nothing like them! They are not cheap, but they are well worth it!

If you search them you will see prices all over the place, https://www.globalindustrial.com/p/s...xoCtMsQAvD_BwE

I did bed mounting last night too...

Worked at Centerline until 10:30, then got home at 11 and went to work.

Gave the top of the hood a good sanding to remove as much of the texture as I could and then shot it.





Of course there had to be ONE friggen dumb bug right away...



Shot the fender extensions too.



When I painted the cowl grille, I wiped it with W&G but forgot to tack it and it was full of lint, so I sanded that and re-shot it. The front valance had splotchy paint from the gun getting partially plugged, so that got the same thing. They look better now.



Hoping to get the wife to help me put the hood on this weekend, so painted the hinges and latch pin Zinc Phosphate.

Well I worked my butt off at lunch today unpacking the bed pieces I just got from Mar-K and I have to say, that company is TOP NOTCH! Wow, the boxing, amazing, the parts, amazing! These are as good as it gets, getting new ones from the Chevy dealer in 1953 they wouldn't look this good, no kidding.

I didn't know I would be getting hardware with the header panel too, that long stud that goes across it, I was planning on making one and wham, it came with it, along with all the quarter inch bolts down the sides!

No kidding, daaaaamn if these guys made the cabs and stuff I could see buying one where now I want to vomit at the idea. These are the only reproduction sheetmetal parts on the truck and they will look BETTER than the rest of the truck!

It all looks so good. I powder coated the hinges in the Gran Sport, wish I hadn't! Caused me a bunch of crap with them not working as smooth because of the paint build up.

I believe I'm close to my first chunk of tuning dialed in. I posted on HP Tuners. Let's see what the experts say....been pissing around a whole week trying to dial in one table. (The VE table)

Another reason I will never do an LS conversion. I like the engines, as my 2011 Silverado has an all aluminum 5.3 at 330 hp, but to get all the crap working correctly on an old car is way beyond my patience and capability.

Ya, time would be an issue with so many projects.
The plus is that as I'm dialing these things in, I'm starting to understand how the sensors and computer control the engine/tranny. Quite interesting.
