before you paint

Postby brewzalot » Fri Jan 15, 2016 8:51 pm

I just spent some time on the safety forum- I must confess its not the place I usually go to. I'm writing this and posting it here to encourage anyone who is planning on painting their Cub, or anything else, to go to that forum first. Please read the posts on painting, especially the ones on using hardeners before doing any work. Even if your confident in your safety equipment and what your about to do, its a short read and a real eye opener.

Well done Tim, safety is never to be taken lightly.

It is a new year and Tim thank you for posting.Safety is our responsibility for ourselves and our family.I have learned over the years 20 in the Navy and 22 years in the aviation industry that the chemicals we use every day may be harmful to us.I have learned that you need to read the Material Safety Data Sheets on the chemicals we use and learn the safety aspects of them so we can use them safely and protect our bodies so we can enjoy our fruits of labor for a long time.Each product or chemical has a msds sheet from the manufacturer and we have to ask for them when we buy the paint or cleaners. Check them out, it only takes a few minutes to read and see if we are using them in a safe way.You can go to msdsdigital.com for a free msds sheet on our chemicals.I urge everyone using chemicals and paints to use them.I always remember safety rules are written in blood.
Thanx,Tim

Good tip! I've read through there and taken a good hard look at what I want to accomplish and its ultimate costs. In the end, might be cheaper, easier and get better quality results to let someone else deal with professional prep of all the original and probably lead-based paint, then spray an automotive quality finish. I'll take the initial hit, as hospital bills can get expensive!

Not only the Safety forum, but many of the other forums offer useful tips. Many members go only to the Cub forum and they miss out on a wealth of other information. I advise everybody who haven't done so, to browse through this entire sight to see what they have missed.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
