Default Re: Re-spraying record decks.

Joe is right, I put ali chassis's and the paint tins to the side of my open fire for 30 mins before spraying, then a quick wipe with a tack cloth.

Another tip is to make a spray booth out of a big cardboard box, this can be closed after spraying to stop hairs and other crap getting on the surface.

With spray cans spraying from the right distance (and speed) determines what sort of finish you get, it's a good idea to use a good nozzle too, the ones that spray a "flat" spray are good, clean with thinners afterwards.

Lastly always start spraying from the side, thing to be sprayed vertical, start at the bottom and move up making sure you've got good coverage; it's a good idea to do a test panel first.
