    we use masks now, and clear makes me puke
    especially without a mask
    we used a box fan in our ceiling/attic opening for updraft to try and get the fumes out faster

    we were actually really close to getting this one out but whoever installed this aftermarket window put the urethane way too high on the bottom of the windshield so we could't cut it with the tool

    we've never gotten a front windshield out without breaking it yet but we're getting better

    I like the clear smell the best, it does clog your nose the fuck up though :( I used to spray cars and parts in my 1 smaller garage, we had a crappy ventilation system in there. I would walk out of there blowing all kinds of crazy colored boogies. :p

    You been painting long?

    the douche bag who i bought it from covered the whole front end with this shit ass red primer, lots of red boogers for me after scuffing all that off

    i don't spray, my friend does all my paint work
    he did my chameleon hatch, then blue and white, then solid blue, then solid blue again after the first one was stolen
    he did his accord, his mazda mini truck, my 95 integra engine bay, his old ladies civic, accord, lots of repair jobs

    i love clearing in the summer in shorts... and you can just feel all the hair on your legs turn to solid spikes

    we need a booth bad, the silver came out great but you can see a lot of dust in the black up top, and then the clear laid down nicely too

    black is house of kolors shimmering metallic black and the silver is a mix between 98 civic and 97 accord or civic silvers... napa ran out of base to mix me a gallon of silver and we didn't have enough of any one silver so we custom mixed it :)

    the S10 is gonna have the same scheme, this was the feeler to see if it worked well

    First wear a mask. Second isocyanate poisoning can kill you and cause serios side effects. wear a paint suit, see # 2.
    A proper set of safty gear will run 250 is that worth your life? ( fresh air, and a cheap suite.

    i need to see where the body line/paint line is when i do the s10
    the original plan for this one was a charcoal pinstripe between the 2 as a transition
    we were going to leave the whole hood black, but decided the line needed to flow across the front so the pinstripe was dropped because it would need to go around the whole car

    My old roomate has almost the exact scheme on his s10. His doesn't lay frame, but its stupid low. Annoying low, all the time.

    The body line on his, if I recall correctly is on the corner of the headlights, to the top of the rear tail lights.

    Didn't someone have a civic on here with a similar paint job?
