Always wanted on of these. Figured it would work well for wax and grease remover. 

 

Old masking removed. Leaf blower has been taken to garage.

Yeah the timing between coats is gonna be tricky. Need 24hrs to tape onto the last coat. 

Need to shoot white, then I can mask next day, shoot coat maybe that evening? Then unmask and shoot the next coat the following day.... 

 

Then mask roof off and shoot lower body. That sounds like a lot of work typing it out 😳

Teenager has zero interest. Wife is out of town. Hence lots of garage time 🤣

 

I'll see how far I get this week! I need to look up the recoat time for the clear.... I may have to spray the lower section of the body before the lace work. So I can shoot one final coat over everything.

I went back to waxing grease, one wipe down of the roof is complete. That sprayer is super freaking handy for applying it

Sprayway is supposed to be great for a wipe-down solvent before paint.  Still smart to check before putting all your faith into it.

Supposed to be hanging plastic.... And my stapler doesn't work. 

 

I did not clean the Shelf wall that well, I really want it plastic off for dust as well as keeping the overspray off of it

Welcome to Run City. Population 1 Travelall

But the roof is one color! A little odd reaction again. More on that later. I have have just had way too much paint on the surface and high air pressure.

I think the activator may have gone bad. It was pretty brown coming out (unopened container, but older). 

 

Here is the previous sprays white vs the cream color I got this time
