Subject: [tcb] Update on Sparky

Well, it looks like I am going to paint Sparky in my garage.  Mark's
friend is busy getting caught up after the rodeo and the two others I've
spoken to want to strip Sparky back down to bare metal and put their own
primer and bondo on.  I'm not about to spend $3,500 on a paint job for a
camper.  I would be afraid to scratch it.
So I've been reading about what you need for a decent garage paint job.
  a.. good compressor with water trap - check
  b.. good HVLP gun - check
  c.. 4 ft. fluorescent light fixtures - about $10 x 4 at home depot
  d.. fan with filter to circulate air - borrow from a friend that has
painted in his garage
  e.. clean all the dust from my garage - after 3 months of sanding this
might be the biggest challenge
  f.. about $500 worth of high build primer and paint=20
  g.. good respirator & rubber gloves - check
  h.. water to wet the floor to keep the dust down - check
  i.. a little patience and luck - we'll see
  j.. $2,960 left over - so I can live with a run or two!
