    Hello,it`s been a nice afternoon here,so I thought I would heat the garage "tent" and do some spraying Left two heater on and after 40 minutes the temp was a pleasant 65 F So managed to give O/S wings three coats of base colour It can be left now ,until the next decent day .Breaks the boredom up and its warmer than the house !!! I said to my wife,get your overcoat on and she said are we going out .I said no I am and Im turning the heating off!!!

    Hello yes a little 2 kw blow heater which I switch off when spraying as it can blow any dust about As I said it was only an hour but the tent isnt too big and your only heating the air that`s in there since most of the volume it taken by the car When I spray the base coat and lacquer I`ll make sure the body surface has warmed up as well So I`ll leave it until the outside temp is approaching 50 Ideal when its coll and dampfree outside as cold air is dryer than warm air. Damp is the biggest problem spraying is a no no .If you try, then the surface goes milky which is a load of trouble Im still working on cars as it took some time to get the spraying right ,so it seemed a shame not to use what I learnt Next base coat and the lacquer to give it the gloss Len

    Hello hope everyone has recovered after Christmas .I thought I would give the "TENT" a try out this morning,the temp was about 47 so I left the fan heat on for an hour any it had crept up to a comfortable 60.So I watered the floordown,to keep the dust away and gave the front and rear wings about three coats of U/C and it`s come out fine I wait a bit longer with the heat on ,when I spray yhe base coat to make sure the panels have warmed up enough .If when Ive finished the wings dont match up to the door, I can spray that as well. Doing it the way I did is easier ,then doing the whole side at one go Can sit back and wait until outside temp rises a bit more Len

    Morning finally finished building the "TENT" .May just as well wait until the weather gets warmer to save trying to raise the temp in the tent too much Once Ive finished the O/S I can slide the tent across to do the N/S The advantage with a tent is that it takes a smaller area area to heat ,and it stops overspray covering everything in the garage Also fitted a sliding door for entry Len
