    OK Its suppose to be a high of 40 lows of 20 this weekend with rain on Saturday, I just got my sandblaster and wanted to do above the gas tank while its out. Sould I just spray some paint and wait till next year to do it right when its warmer? Or can I put paint on when its that cold? I was planning on putting POR-15 on the rusted spots first. But I need my truck driveable on Monday.

    I've got to do some this weekend myself, wheels to be exact. It's suppose to stay dry. Here's my plan, I get the sanding done, clean the wheel, then I have this nifty heat gun the wife found at the drug store or some other place, dry the wheel completely, while warming it up, when paint is ready, the wheel should be warm enough for almost instant paint dryage.
