February 24th, 2012 1 comment

A few months ago i built a simple but effective spraybooth for my brothers-in-law. Partway through I started taking pictures and eventually I made a writeup but then I got busy with stuff around the house and forgot about it. I’ve got another couple how-tos in various states of completion (plus an actual model-building update) so hopefully I’ll get them all posted in the next week.
