    The general rule of thumb when painting is cleanliness. If the surface is not clean or prepped right then the paint will look like crap. 90% of paint jobs that have a strange swirl or little rivets in them are due to poor preperation. Painting is easy, getting to that point is the hard part.

    When you are ready to paint some things that you should do:

    1 make sure you have the right equipment including; a good compressor, proper air guns, proper tips and needles for the guns, proper paint and hardner, good thinner, any needed plastic walls, a clean area, a garden hose (water), painting suits, resperator, face sheild, and proper ventilation. I can not stress enough to anyone how inportant all of these are.

    2 Make sure you can paint the area you are working on without interference from anything like; harnesses, interior panels, your physical workspace, your air supply, ect

    3 make sure you are not alone! if you pass out or anything should happen like a flame or spark, please make sure you have someone there to watch you.

    4 make sure the temperature is between 60 and 100 degrees F and a good mid humidity and a low wind for people using garages.
