We have less than a week to get my 1967 Chevy C10 running and driving so that we can cruise it to MRC Fabrication in Kernersville, North Carolina. We are going to drive it there on Sunday March 7th to go check out the progress on my 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVill. You guys are welcome to meet us there if you want. The address is 616 Indeneer Drive, Kernersville, NC 27284.
We are going to upload several videos to the channel this week and those videos have been made possible by the good folks at Wire Care. Wire Care distributes everything you need to wire and plumb your hot rod, muscle car, truck, drift car or tricycle and we are using everything from battery cable to heat shielding products during the thrash to finish my C10. Want to see more? Visit www.wirecare.com

$400 for an EZ-UP LMFAO you can buy a NICE steel tube frame 8x15 4 wall carport from costco for like $250. And it's strong enough to hang from, if you're a small frail boy like i am. I dont think newburn should be trying it

Have you ever heard of, or used raptorliner bedliner? I'm thinking of doing my whole Bronco II in it. Its affordable and has good reviews. Any experience with bedliner paint jobs??

Nice paint booth. A bit of overkill for spray cans but great idea.

For everybody who wants to do try using a makeshift paint booth like this: You want OVERpressure in the paintbooth to avoid dirt and dust beeing sucked into the booth. So it may be better to install a box fan that sucks the air out plus a bigger one (or two) to blow fresh air from the outside into the booth. Place the blowers opposite to the sucking fan. Those need filters too of course plus they should be installed some what higher off the ground. Use a table outside the booth to support them. This is of course not overly critical if you are just priming with rattle cans or the like, but if we are talking of painting the car e.g. with a paint gun: Do it! It's only an additional fan or two. Basically the walls of the paint booth always need to bulge out.

Me commenting before the video starts- "Gee I thought the hot c10 truck trend was to leave the body crappy looking, clear coat the rust and slap a gas monkey sticker on it......nice to see one getting a proper paint job" Me after the video- "oh.....never mind"

Nice temporary booth,, but after all that work to make a booth, why wouldn't you buy a good quality etching primer and put on a quality finish? Rattle can paint never holds up..

I'm all for the paint booth, but is it really necessary for just rattle can priming a few parts? Id imagine most of that primer is going to be sanded off anyways come paint time.

Next time you build a paint booth do a whole wall of box fans and the opposite side do all filters. Then also do filters on the outside of the fans to catch the over spray

All that for rattle can primer. First of all,you should have used a catalyzed epoxy primer or DTM. Second it was way overkill for what you did. I could see if you were trying to make a clean paint job

You should blow the air IN through the filter and let it escape through the natural gaps. With the fan sucking clean air out through the filter you’ll be drawing dirty dusty air in through the natural gaps in the booth.

Sweet paint booth, however I feel like you could have just grabbed a gallon urethane primer and a harbor frieght throwaway gun and saved your self 400 bucks. Nice work anyway!

I did a similar thing when I bought back my totaled car from an insurance company. I bought a $40 foldable shelter from Walmart, wrapped it in cling-wrap, put two box-fans on one side, and painted my body panels w/ Harbor Freight painting hardware. Even returned the shelter when I was done! But to be fair, some of the fabric was ripping apart during the initial setup, so it was going back anyways. P.S. That primer you're using, DO NOT USE DEGREASER TO CLEAN IT!!! I used the same stuff with my front fender, and it literally turned the primer into a syrup-like substance. Took two hours to clean off.

I've been drooling over a 71 Suburban that's for sale close by for $2200 that's been sitting 20 years.. I just don't know if it's tall enough for my 6'10 all torso body. I know when my brother in law had a C20 pickup I couldn't fit in it even with a really broken down seat. I guess custom seats with adjustable backs would help but.. I dunno. Plus I don't know if I really want a Chevy to be my first non-Ford :P I'd be more open to an old Dodge, Packard, Olds or Pontiac.

I did this a few months ago, except with a 10x30 car enclosure from pepboys. It was 200 bucks instead of your 400, but its no ez up for sure. Its a bunch of slip together pipes but has 3 walls and a zip up door if you don't want to build the walls around an ez up.

My 76 C10 is soaking up room in my shop, waiting for me to do the metal work, finish the 6.0 install, notch the frame a little bit, change the leafs, flip the axle and make it a driver again. I could do it in five days.. but I am old and its cold out there in the shop, part of the problem with living in the north. Yes I own my shop now... and is glorious. After the second wife got the second house and garage in the second divorce, I bought some land full of trees in the middle of nowhere for dirt cheap. Then I cleared some of the trees and used them as the poles to hold the roof trusses up, poured some concrete and built a 32x48x12 shop for less than $18k.. and its overbuilt with 8" to 14" diameter logs holding the roof up. Sheeted with 5/8 OSB and then roofing steel, some foam board insulation on the bottom of the trusses, and boom I had a place to work on my junk. Started in July put the sliding door up the second week of November. Thats a lot of work for one guy who hired three guys to help with the slab, and two guys to help with the roof, but did everything else. Then I put three shipping containers together and lived in that for 5 years. Priorities.. Two years ago I reconfigured the containers from a 460sqft room to a 1050 sqft two story with a loft slightly bigger room on a concrete pillar foundation sitting on bedrock. I can paint my cars and truck easily, along with doing everything else I need to do while rebuilding them, and I splurged on a lift for the shop. Perhaps this year I can get running water in the house for the first time since 2013. Priorities.. and I am off to the gym to take a shower, do some laundry and buy more wood pellets to heat this place. I rattle can painted my 70 GTO in the parking lot of my apartment building in Charleston SC when I was stationed down there in the early 2000s.

I have painted the topper for my trucks to match, Base coat, clear coat, in my garage. Came out looking like it was done at a body shop, but the overspray!!! OY, wont do that again. Been considering doing something like this in my garage to contain the overspray. The base is dust, but the clear is the real bugger as it doesn't dry while airborne. LOL I need to respray a Grand Marquis as the clear used on it is way too soft and scratches with just wiping a hand over it.
