Maybe this is why I've moved to my new location?workbench001_zpsfd705abe.jpgBetter light here also.  I just have to watch for getting super glue on the table.  Too late. :( workbench002_zps3a5b67e9.jpg

I just love when a plan comes together. Over the last couple years, me and painting just do not seem to get along. So I have this bottle of Cobra Colors paint that looks just about perfect for what I want in the bottle, of course, my own darn fault for not spraying a test piece, but on this little car to my eye there is now way too much metallic. I let it set over 24hr and come back, and it does not look too bad, passable for a quick out of the box build, so I go to shoot on some Cobra Colors clear. Now, the clear has lost some of it's pre-mixed thinner over time, so I add a touch more, and immediately I am spraying spider webs.  ARGH! Now, I am only shooting around 10-12 PSI. SO I thin it up some more, and get it to where I can spray.  Moving along OK, then Spatter. Crud build up in the tip sends a spit.  Well, it is clear, and I think it will polish out OK, but this little bugger will be tough to get to all the areas. Here is where I am this morning.

After over 40 years of marriage and 50 years of modemaking, my wife wanted the dining room table back, something about family coming over for Christmas dinner? So five years ago she helped me build this in the back garden...................................

I remember that little gem when you first presented it here. What a nice little fortress of solitude. That second step looks like a doozy.
