Puter, read the topic. I already explained the ventilation and dust control. It cost me 15 bucks.

Rob, I use a 6CFM Craftsman compressor with a 15 gallon tank and a Husky HVLP gun (8cfm) with a gravity feed top cup. I buffered my 6cfm compressor and 15 gallon tank with an 11 gallon buffer tank inline, and installed my low pressure HVLP regulator on that.

EWC? Learn it? I've never used an HVLP gun before. I got a couple practice shots on the plastic sheeting, got the spray pattern, and went for it. But the basics have been learned for years.

Ok, I clicked the link for more whorage. Those pics you have, are they taken at the same spot where the covered bridge is? The area looks similar. and secondly I clicked on the video and I have to say your engine sounds like a smooth running monster and I bet the video does not do your car any justice. I have viewed Green Bonnies as being common and boring. your car is definitely not common or boring. great job sir.

Maybe the background noise is masking things a bit but on my computer your engine sounds fine. I am sure it sounds different in person.
for some stupid reason I thought you fixed her already. its been real busy around here and have not been paying close attention to much.
I will take my dope slap with grace... I just remembered your in the process of building up another motor.
