    it is stupid to do this today, but I remember when I was kid around the body shop....both my dad's and my uncle's....as well as a couple of other I knew of.....the norm was coating your nostrils with veseline to catch most of the fumes. 30+ yrs ago the masks were kinda crappy. didn't fit well.....and when you are moving around a car with a spray gun in one hand and dragging a hose with another, you couldn't be fiddlin' with a mask that didn't fit your face. real bad for the health.

    but today the paints are much stronger. I won't even mix my paint without a mask. U-POL is especially strong.
    I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

        Just a quick question... are you using an organic vapor filter? If not you really aren't stopping any chemicals. HEPA filters are really only good for particulates from sanding and other similar processes.

          If you use chapstick you can easily apply it evenly.

              If you are going to paint the calipers try this stuff, I've used it, it really works and is durable as hell.
