Talking The transformation

We have been working flat out in the last few weeks and I am now seeing some light at the end of the tunnel ! Painting in a tent ! The rollout. Some assembly required. . The color change in the light is unbelievable.

Looking SWeeeet Kyle ....
Mate what a Brilliant idea with the tent ...with tents so damn cheap nowdays it's a great idea to stop the filth getting out or in and the side ventilation is cool as well all the best on the remaining works.

Yep $200 well spent, had my doubts at first but it worked a treat.

Niiice ! What's the colour ? It looks very much like the colour I've picked for mine. Mine's a Glasurit colour...no name just a number.

G'day Rob,
The color is Lexus spectra blue Mica and the stripes are BMW sparkling graphite.
The pictures don't do the color justice.

Kyleb,

What did you use for filtration on the tent? Anymore pics of how the airflow works (inlet and outlet). Was there much of a smell outside the tent?

Thats a fantastic idea. I am planning on hiring a booth, but your set up looks like it might be a better way to go.

Kyleb,
Very nice indeed. Good luck with the rest of your build. I'll be watching with keen interest.
Love the look of the robnell, but with them out of action, have you encountered any difficulties sourcing parts, bits & pieces or is it much the same?
Ps: where are your wheels from? They look great.

Thanks,

G'day Guys,
In the picture you can see the commercial aircon duct which went through the entry door outside, at the end of that is a large single phase fan in a housing which vented through some filter material (DUE TO EPA REGULATIONS), we left the window closest to the duct open which then let enough air in and was'nt being drawn over the body. We were spraying when I took the photo ! There is a small gas powered heater on the opposite corner inside the tent ( I reckon it was about 50 deg in there when painting ) and we kept the floor and surrounding area wet, pressure washed the whole thing inside prior. Must say I was sceptical at first but it worked a treat. The Dupont rep had a look at it afterwards and stated there was less rubbish in the paint than jobs done in a $100,000 booth. (PREP). We replaced the centre pole with an eyelet and hung it from the roof, so no obstruction. Shut all roller doors and as many gaps as possible.
Only one thing occurred to me afterwards was:
1. open flame. (Heater)
2. paint fumes (Flammable)
3. For some reason my wife had just increased my life insurance. (Hmmmm)



Back to the car !!!!!
I had to fabricate a lot of the bits due to the fact that there is no factory support. Although suspension is Jag and steering Gemini.
The wheels are from Vintage wheels in the States, had to machine the backspacing on the fronts though due to the fact that the Tri wing spinner would'nt go on more than a couple of threads.
