    I like the way they pour the polyurethane in the bucket and stir it with a stick. Important to mix that shit up.

    That was old alkyd enamel paint. Spray it in June and it finally hardened up in late September.
    All bodywork was extra and that's where they made money.

    When I was a young buck we used to frame up a spray booth in a buddy's back yard and cover it in visqueen. We'd swap it out between jobs and bang out 4 in a weekend.


    High quality, low price. :eek:
