P.S. Thanks to everyone for the great info on this forum! Some of the models posted in the "Under Glass" forum are pure porn!

WoW Sean,that's a good question! I've had one for years an I've NEVER used it for anything other than drying paint. I don't see how it could hurt, cause I've never noticed any kind of residual odor comin from it after I've used it, But to be on the safe side, If you do dry meat or fruit or whatever, let yer frens eat it first, that way you can experiment on them an use the results to further your quest for knowledge into the model car world! Now,.......PARTY ON!!!!!!!
haha george thats funny. Sean one rule thats most importent in model car building is never use something that u used on a model in your house hold. Like the dehydrater. Never use it for food again to be on the safe side and i would try it either. So no dont use for food.

I guess I could have come to the conclusion on my own; it's just that the tab on this project is really starting to rack up! (paint, brushes, small stuff, etc. is killing me hehe)

I'm trying to figure out how to modify this to use as a paint-dryer. The best idea I've come up with so far is to get some type of aluminum sheet I can fashion into a cylinder, around two of the discs, and join them somehow-- maybe with epoxy or even duct tape. Because there is no way I can squeeze a model car between those thin layers of trays. I'm wondering if this is what's typically done.
What are some of they ways you guys have used to convert the dehydrator into a paint dryer? Any help will be appreciated. Some photos would really help.
Thanks in advance!
