    Also, you might need to build a painting booth (something you can bondo in with it blowing the fumes outside). Doesn't have to be much. Mine is a table with an acrylic shield on the front and a couple of sintra sheets for sides. It has some plastic strips on the lower front that I can put my hands through to do the work I need without exposing too much for the fumes to get out more than necessary. It is also good to sand in to keep the particulates from going everywhere. Just make sure to clean it regularly or the acrylic shield can get scummy. It is built against a window and has a small fan to suck out the fumes. It also has a couple of heat lamps to keep it from getting too cold inside.

    Dang man that sounds like alot. I only have a townhome so not much in the way of being able to do all that damn. Was hoping I could put a heater or something but a tote like you said sounds good.

    We do painting and fabrication for other things, so the painting booth is required lest we have stoned cats running around huffing paint fumes. Also, it helps when sanding for the same reason.

    Though, last year when we had the snow... It was amazing sanding and painting with the flakes falling right outside the window.

    Hey y'all Washington folks. There are a few folks in the Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale area. I would love to do a meet and greet somewhere, maybe dinner or coffee somewhere. Let me know if this sounds like something worth putting together.

    A meetup sounds excellent! Unfortunately, I'm in college now, so my schedule is wonky. :/

    checking in from Lynnwood. I'm new to armor building and currently in the process of procuring supplies for my first build.
    If anyone in the surrounding area has any advice, tips/tricks, etc. or would like to meet up for lunch or whatever, it would be greatly appreciated.
