Wow. Just wow. Great tutorial. I'll have to go buy all of this stuff myself.

Paint job is great, just as a whole, awesome!

Mind you to spray paint in open environments, although for the fact for the past week has been in the 60 degree range, not that hard to do...

Yeah I'm not too keen on exfixiating on aerosol propellants and paint either. I use one of those double sided masks that is for painting cars if I'm indoors and spraying. When it's not so brutally cold (just heard on the news tonight's low with the wind chill is supposed to be minus 35-40 fahrenheit) I go outside. Everyone please don't kill your brain because I said I spray paint in my bathtub, get a nice and spindy respirator. They may cost a bit, but not as much as a trip to the hospital for a brain transplant.

P.S. Crown and Coke all the way. The Dew is for motivation and stamina into the wee hours of the morn.

I wouldn't recommend it. Spray paint is rather sticky, and it'll gum up all the moving parts. You could try just hand paints, but be careful because without a firm base they'll get scratched rather easily. They do make sealers that can be applied with a brush, and I would highly recommend putting that on if you do paint with it without getting it open. Just try prying it open a little harder before you do, it'll make your life a lot easier if you can get it open to paint it.

just a curiosity question, how crucial is it to use the paint thinner? It truly isn't that big of a deal, I have no problem paying for it, but is it an important part of the painting process, or just a simple starter that will help the paint last? Wonderful tutorial by the way.

Reasonable question, but the thread is old. Doubt the OP is still around to respond.
