If 22mph is windy then you don't want to come to KS. That's a nice breeze here.

Chadluk, I admire your tenacity and 'git 'er done' mentality. You can paint on my road anytime and I don't give a rats patootie if overspray gets on my stuff or if you have to pour a gallon of leftover in the gutter. P.S. I have a 55 gallon barrel of Johnson wax if you need some.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

Basically it has to do with the EPA regulations and what ever is there. Most automotive paints now days are water based due to this and the "volatiles" that they hated.
The point could have been made with these idiot is what about all the pollutants from vehicles and what ever that run off the road bed into the storm drains?
What they were doing was trying to scared you off. If you were not rinsing off the bus and it was going into the drian they can take their fire hose and do an un natural thing with it.. They are not a Law Enforcement agency and can't "arrest" you.

This is the main reason why I left the Land of Fruit s and nuts..

yes well they told me how it contributes to holes in the ozone...etc. but didn't say I violated any laws..they just said how it shouldn't be done. but i don't know how a paint booth would be different.those filter are to remove debris in the air and fumes.. but it can't stop the volatiles you describe. infact after you paint the paint can't be waxed for 30 days because it continues to " breath" and release fumes. so i dont see how painting in a booth is going to be healthy for the enviroment

Be careful. It's supposed to warm up after this cold front passed thru. The high roads (I40 Gallup west to state line) are iced already. And the front isn't supposed to clear out until Thursday AM.

BTW, BBQ joint across from Sam's is hiring. WM is hiring PT. Saw the signage yesterday.
