Another new guy

Post by retired plumber on April 27th 2008, 1:36 am

Hi
My name is Mike and I am a custom car guy that happened to be a plumber all his life. I have been into painting cars since I took the hood ornament off my 1953 rambler, filled the holes with bondo and used mom's finger nail polish (perfect match) to paint it. Lasted about 2 months at a time. This was in 1960. Since then I have spray painted at least 50 cars and trucks and have done many different kinds of graphics on them also.
Anyway, my reason for joining is because we are moving to Tucson, Az soon and will be in a HOA and can't make ANY FOUL SMELLS (lacquer thinner smells good to me). Sooooooo Rolling seems to be the way I will be going and I want to learn as much as I can. I won't have a project for a while but since I am retired I will be buying fixers and selling them for my play money. Also, I like metallic and metalflake type stuff so I will be playing with that also.
Maybe I can help answer some questions in the spraying part of the forum even tho it is just a hobby and no formal training. You learn fast in the school of hard knocks.
Mike

Welcome to the forums man. Sorry for the late response I have had several things going on lately and haven't been around much. Good luck with your project and keep us posted on your progress.
