Paint Day- Finally

Hi Everyone,

Well, after hours of wet sanding, taping, washing, vacuuming the garage, I finally applied paint today in a home made booth in my garage. I've definitely got to do some wet sanding, but am pleased with the results so far.

Check out these pics...

First of all, no plastic on the floor, I had to recoat it anyway, so I just left it. The rest of the garage is fine, I'll paint the floor back to it's normal gray next week. I sprayed Tremclad in spray bombs. I used high gloss with no clear coat. I do have runs and drips, but planned on wet sanding (I figured I most likely would all along), and will get some pics in the sun once the paint hardens up a bit and also after I have sanded and buffed out all the imperfections. And before anyone says good luck sanding out runs etc, I feel that I have put in enought time sanding body filler-if anyone can do it, I can! lol

Thanks guys, yes I am enjoying the process. Now I'm looking forward to the process of driving a car that doesn't look like a patchwork quilt!

Where did you buy red Tremclad? I couldn't find any at Home Depot. They only sell red Rustoleoum. I am wrong?

How many cans? It doesn't seem to have the tiger stripping most rattle can jobs seem to have.

Must have smelled though.
