    That's why I specified my bro-in-law shoots "in his detached garage". I should of elaborated more. "His" means his wife doesn't go in there. LOL. For folks that haven't used it, you've got to take all the precautions with Klass Kote that you do shooting any auto paint. The fumes are nasty when you shoot it. It's good stuff though. It flows nice, is durable and you can get it in small quantities.

    Agreed, however I pointed out in post 16, live in an apartment - don't have room to store a proper compressor like the second one RDCracer linked in post 25. Even those pancake jobbies would be tough.

    I've been having good luck with rattle cans because of attention to prep.

If you are going to use it for anything but an airbrush make sure it has at least 2.5hp. Their cheepo airbrush sells for about $12-$15 and I bought at first for a throw a way for stuff that I didnt want to use in my good gun and found out they are really good also.
    Get a folding table and get off the sidewalk
    Going back over to pick something up tonight one way or another.... I have been on the email list for sure! Great deal, in fact I use the 20 or 25% coupon everytime a new one comes out, I've got a bunch of stuff from them.... a lot of their stuff might not be good for commercial use, but works fantastic for hobbyists for occasional use with great results!
