panel holder thingy
« on: January 16, 2015, 03:03:10 PM »
I'm tired of spraying doors, boot lids, and bonnets one side at a time so just devised this out of some scrap metal.   The top is even detachable and makes it easy to move.

Looks like a good idea.  Can you get around behind all of the panels  so that you can get both sides, or do you just have to turn them around?

I like it.

Does the tab on the ends of the pipe stick up far enough that you can paint the inside edge of the window channel openings?

Yes to both of you.  I can easily spray both sides and I found rectangle bar that is perfect for the channels.

For a minute there I thought you were going to tell us how you sprayed both sides at once LOL.

I'm excited about using it on these panels.  It's a real drag doing them a side at a time.   I shot primer on them after final block sanding and worked great.

You'll love it, I hung up my doors, hood, and boot lid worked great.
I don't know why I did it the hard way for so long having to wait and mask the done side sucks.
That and less dirt seems to get in the paint when it's not laying flat.

As many as I've done you'd think I'd have made something sooner.   I had time to weld it up while I was waiting for some filler to dry.
