To be continued
 
1 year later constructed a paint booth. Using the blower from an air handler. Removed when home AC was upgraded.

Iwata 3.0 spray gun, paid the bucks for it. Shoots paint with the least amount of overspray. Handy option for an amature , I can tell ya that.

Creating a sudo down draft paint booth. It worked better than I could have asked. Zero trash, even better no overspray in the finish.

And the ever present Forman looking over my shoulder inspecting progress.

It is very much like welding, prep taking the most time. Final process goes so fast. Leaves ya with an all that for such a short ride.

Reassembly and first fire next
