Your level of patience is unreal. I would have been sick of painting that EBD cabinet long ago. At this point it would be giving me nightmares.

Quoted from setzkor:

Cholesterol looks fine. That phone battery on the other hand is unhealthily low.

LOL.. had to look back at that one. Very unhealthy on that battery

Quoted from pinwiztom:

Question?
Do you ever drink any beer that you can see thru?

Does not sound like beer at all.

Paint is ridiculously expensive. I picked up some black from Napa and was surprised by the cost, I bet it went up 4x (or more) since the last paint I bought 15-20 years ago. And back then I used fancy pearls and such from House of Kolor, this was just Martin S. black. I'd have to guess what it would cost to paint a car nowadays.

What is your process for "tightening up"?

#2394 1 year ago

Connecticut style... That's there warm with butter version? That's the best, IMO. Hard to get it that way on our travels to Maine a few years ago.

#2398 1 year ago

I think that I want to be at HEP's place for the Superbowl.

Quoted from Green_Demon:

Another idea...

I puked just a bit when looking at that.

Quoted from zerbam:

All the coin door color talk drove him away from the hobby.

Holy crap.... Someone send a search party for HEP, the national guard... Something.

#2649 1 year ago
Quoted from jchristian11:

Did he ask anyone here if he could go on vacation?

I got no vacation notice.

Send in the Guard!

Everyone is all gitty about these TSPP decals... I cannot say that I agree. Not a fan of that dark black for the shadows, seems like someone rattle canned the shadows. I like to resolution compared to the dotted originals but I'm just not as hyped about them as everyone else seems to be.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

The shadows look well done to me I can easily see through them even the black lines.
I just haven’t taken too many direct pictures yet because I try to do that at the end
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That's a little better but I'm still not overly impressed like others. Too dark on the shadows. Blends in too much on the cat's tail. Probably look better with a touch of purple instead of so much black. Shadows should always have purple, IMHO.

What do you use for sanding? I assume it is by hand? What is the pad size? Grit?

#2833 1 year ago
Quoted from Jarbyjibbo:

I assume it is by hand?
Ohh god, what a nightmare that would be. He has covered it previously in if not this thread, definitely in others. He has a Festool rig he uses and it involves many different grits depending on what you are trying to accomplish and from what starting point you are at.

I think that is for cabinet prep... Not this final block sanding step. I used to have a 2-3' sanding pad for doing car bodies, I'm guessing that he has something like that.

Chris,

How do you handle the paint edges when doing stencils like this? Do you just keep building then up then burry them in clear? Keeping each layer at a min thickness probably helps too.

Quoted from AUKraut:

I do exactly the same, except I have a 2 inch thick foam insulation 4x8 I use for plywood cuts with a circular saw. Works great!

I also have a 2" foam board for cutting plywood... never thought about snapping it into quarters for easier storage. I like the idea as I'm always moving a ton of stuff to get to it when I need it.

Terrible... Terrible... so many white dots.
