    i work along side 16 painters with a company called manheim in australia and i am the tallest, it does not matter how tall you are asslong as you can paint and provide a nice clean finish, get your blends rite, color match good and problem solve, but gender could be a issue, imagen a girl working inbetween 20 or so rough blokes who loves women? im sure there will be some harrasment.

  2. Does it really matter what size/ gender you are. I want to be a spray painter but im quite small,, would they rather to hire a boy?

  3. prep is the expensive part. you aint joking if my memory serves me right a roll of 3/4 in tapes is like what $8

  4. I’m not a fan of spaying single. I’m not a big fan of water born either. I like BC CC (solvent). I’ve heard from the teachers that tought me lacquer is the best to work with. I guess it’s what you’re most confortable with. I do have to say, my best paint job was a 2 stage, but the best paint job I’ve seen yet was a single (by an old guy).

  5. its not go as fast as u can , its go preferably fast but at a pace were you dont think it will run , or at a good cover space

  6. the temperature definately affects your flash time. the cooler it is the longer it will take to flash. i’d give it another 10 to 15 minutes just to be sure

    if i spray a hood outside with 50 degree temp will the flash time be the same as it would be at 70 degrees? should i wait longer between coats.
