Yeah, this is my first time seeing this as well. Excellent job, Peter! I wish you lived a few thousand miles closer to Phoenix!

OVERSPRAY? On what? All the painting has been on individual parts in a paint booth. You don't get overspray from a professional painter of PG'* skill level. BTW.. this is what PeterG does for a living and he'* damn good at it.

First I'm seeing this thread also...where the heck have I been?

Really fine work, Peter!!!

This is a great thread for those that want an idea of what it takes to do good paint work. Having done a lot of custom woodwork and refinishing, I know that the sanding and surface prep take the most time. Do you want to give us a rough idea of the hours spent on each piece?

IMHO, those are good labor hours when considering the quality of the work done. I guess that'* the the practice and the experience that comes from doing it for a living.
