    Default Painting Class in Sydney

    Hi Guys,

    if anyone is in Sydney, and interested in spending a morning learning how to repair minor damage and spray paint a car, i would highly recommend going to one of VG Auto Paints free workshops.

    http://www.vgautopaints.com.au/

    I went to yesterdays class, and they do a pretty decent walk through of bogging a minor dent, then preparing it and panting car panels in acrylic.

    They also allow you to have a go, and offer tips and tricks to make things easier. Of course they make things look so easy

    They also have a really good range of products onsite.

    Well worth the trip!

    no they didn't unfortunately, they glossed over 2-pac mainly because it is illegal to spray it outside of a booth

    I forgot it's illegal to paint 2k outside a booth. I asked my neighbour if he ever smelt my spraying and he stated that he had never smelt it but had heard my grinder a hell of a lot.

    You should just spray your K in 2k and see if anyone complains Kent, it's really not much harder to spray than acrylic.

    we have already had 3 complaints to the council, only 1 of them was valid ... they seem to winge and complain now whenever they hear the compressor start (ie. blowing up tyres, rattle gun etc..) .. neighbour from hell (old bat!)

    I may still be able to spray acryllic on the GT panel by panel especially if i can keep the smell down.. otherwise i will need to find another place to spray

    You could be a complete ***** and just always leave the compressor running during business hours (it's legal) until they get used to it and then every now and again sneak in a little bit of 2k spray
