  1. Looks like that one is 20 minutes from my hotel. Ill have to stop by
  2. Im heading down to charelston wv this weekend and was wondering if there are any good hobby shops in the area? I did a google search but only found hobby lobby and michaels.
  3. Also went out to ikea with the wife and bought a new bigger table and a few lamps. I was us in a small desk and ran out of space fast
  4. Went to two local hobby shops.first one was getting rid of alclad paints. I paid $5 for the 4oz black and 2.99 each for chrome and brushed aluminum. I also picked up two kits. The viper kit was $4 and the barracuda was $5. Went to the other shop and bought two paint stands and 2 wired distributors and some sheet styrene
  5. I haven't given up yet. Im going to autorama tomorrow to pick up a few more kits. Then I'm locking myself in the room to figure the out
  6. I will try that this weekend. It seems like every time I spray no matter how I mixed it or my air pressure the paint looks textured. I have tried it quite a few times with the same results. I have mixed with both floor polish and windshield washer solvent.
  7. I have been trying this since you posted your other video last week. And for the life of me I can't figure it out.
  8. The wife and I have gone every friday for the last 3 weeks. Im sure we will be there again this friday
  9. Took me a little while but I figured it out. Works great. There is an aco hardware near me that is closing.I got everything thing I needed for $5 and some change
  10. I just picked up a food dehydrator. It doesn't have a temperature control. I saw online that someone wired in a switch and a dimmer to control temp. I have been Google searching a how to but can't seem to find anything. Anyone know how to do it?
  11. I have used it to spray a body yet. I have sprayed interior parts and it seems to work great. I used some masking tape and taped all the joints where the panels connect.
  12. Just went downstairs to check on the progress. Its been 3 days now and its working. Just a slow process. If its not stripped by friday night I'm going to buy alcohol both kinds rubbing and drinking.
  13. The guy was an ass on the phone. I have a short temper so I'm just going to leave it alone.
  14. Well I called him and he's pretty firm at 35. I decided to pass because he was being a jerk on the phone.
  15. The reason I ask is I am horrible at negotiating prices. So I figured I would find out what other people paid and go from there
  16. Im not sure if this is the right section or not. I was just looking on craigslist and found a guy selling a model masters paint rack that he said he got from a hobby shop that was closing. Before I go pick it up I was wondering how much they usually go for? I called him and he said to come out and look at it and make an offer
  17. Great.... well that explains why it was by one get one free.
  18. I have seen a lot of people on here are using super clean to strip paint. Sunday morning I bought 2 gallons to give it a try. I have had 2 cars soaking since then and it has barely touched the paint. Both cars were painted with duplicolor white primer nail polish base color and duplicolor clear. I took them out yesterday and tried scrubbing with a toothbrush but that did nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

  20. I get my bonus this friday so I decided to buy myself a new airbrush. I also bought the fan cap for it.
