Also, what other preparation is there? I have looked around on some paint forums and the lingo they use goes right over my head.
I have a decent compressor and a brand new decent gravity fed spray gun. I have no experience in this kind of spraying, but I was damn good at using rattlecans 20 years ago on a beetle!
I have a big enough indoor area that can be sealed off with plastic sheeting - I know I need a mask but have no idea what kind. I also have a decent sander/da.
I have never thought of trying this before and my recent learning from scratch how to weld and not being too bad at it has given be a much needed blast of confidence in learning a worthy skill from scratch.
