Best to get an old electric oven and put it in the garage.

I use Krylon semi gloss for almost all of my black parts. I have found it to be a excellent paint. I do not like Rustoleum brand. I don't have anything powder coated, even my chassis parts are done in Krylon.........good stuff. Eastwood sells a bunch of different paints to but they seem to have a different paint for every part of the car :lol: I wonder how much of it is really the same paint, just a marketing thing to get you to buy a bunch of different cans.

Sorry for the Hi-jack, but to Clyde's statement, what is it about the Rustoleum that you don't like? I'm having some weird issues with the R-O paint, in Semi-gloss. Maybe I should switch to the Krylon?

Rustoleum is GARBAGE!...get yourself a can of krylon or dupli-color..

Autozone has recently stopped carrying krylon and switched to rustoleum...so you might have to try advance or some other parts store.
Rustoleum has a terrible spray pattern, offers less coverage per ounce, and IMHO cant compare to krylons color selection.

I just painted some wheels with rustoleum and the TACK COAT RAN! and yes I didnt make any rookie mistakes like leaving grease on the surface or dirt or not shaking the can.
Krylon has a mush easier nozzle to use as well...it sprays better and doesnt fatigue your finger.

God bless

I like the way Krylon sprays and dries quicker than Rustoleum. It also gives me the gloss (or lack of it) that I am after. I like to spray it on in light coats and then for the last coat move the can way back and just spray a very light mist coat for the final one. Krylon just seems more user friendly.

I would have to agree with Clyde, the Krylon paint is much nicer to use in a spray can than Rustoleum.

Hey Jeff,looking at your pictures made me think of my chevy pickup under the hood.
It has those cogs on it.I bet you could get the whole set up from the salvage yard
for a cheap.Your set up looks very strong and compact though,let us know how
it works out.
