You paint the parts yourself? What kind of spray gun do you use? compressor etc.....

I was thinking about buying a gravity feed HVLP gun from harbor freight $40 and a little compressor to paint my own stuff, but i live in an apartment,.......my neighbor has an empty utility closet thats fairly big (6'x3') and I have friends with houses, but I never knew the quality I would get compared to getting it done at an autobody shop.....

It's rattle can, for now ... Y2KSierra paints alot of his own stuff and his stuff turns out great :rocking: .. he can probably help answer some of your paint questions.

Those handles will take forever to smooth until you are happy. Don't give up, just keep sanding! I did a pair of them a few weeks ago, they came out great due to all of our prep work.

i think it looks sweet. You sprayin the base/clear outside? The most wise advice my friend told me (he's a pro painter) is "90% of the crap that gets in the paint comes from the nooks and crannies in the car. Not the air or ground." Best advice you can give anyone, except if they're painting in the desert or something. lol
