    Just curious how other people painted parts?

    I hang mine from the tree out back so they can dry and they are easy to swing around

    Took a few pics while waiting for the paint to dry

    I paint mine the same way, I have an old beater utility trailer, that act's as the "hanging tree", it need's paint protection too, so I don't mind a little black, chevy orange, red, red primer, and whatever other color I spray stuff, oversprayed onto it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I have a long 2x4 I lay across the supports of my garage door then I hang the stuff from it. I prefer painting inside because every time I try to paint outside it seems the wind is blowing.

    BTW yes I do have an exhaust fan, a rather large one in fact.

    The inside of my dads barn looks like it raining bailing twine from all the parts hanging from the hayloft rafters /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    How to paint a crank.
    Get a good one for free.
    Take it to work, clean it and spend hrs polishing the journals and measuring them all.
    Decide that it is suitable for your needs and take it home and set it standing up on yer bench.
    Get up and go to work and notice a crankshaft painted Chevy orange. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif standing on the bench.
    Kids....
    I had been cleaning and painting parts all weekend and Quin saw the fresh crank there and hit it with brake clean and emptied a can of chevy orange on it.
    Since I am not using it and was just gonna smear grease on it I just touched up the spots he missed and put it away.

    I make my own parts cleaner, I bet it would take fresh paint off!
