I had a gal borrow my Binks to paint a big mural on the side of a building in down town Roanoke.

So her and art students set up scaffolding and start spraying away.

After about 3 hours of painting they decide to take a lunch break.

It was then somebody noticed the 150 plus cars in the lot behind them.:eek:

Poor gal, I should have said something about overspray.:rolleyes:

Sounds like something I did in 1988, I was spraying Enducryl on the mansard roofs of KFC and the overspray carried about a half mile to a car dealership. about 30 cars had safety red sprinkles. lol

I painted a building for my bro-in-law, commercial, airless sprayer. Day 2, all materials are on site so I drive my car. I park about 100 ft. away, there is very little breeze, and dive in. Go all day nonstop (this is a tradeout deal). When I approach the car to go home...my new Olds is covered in yellow specks.
The saving grace. The car was brand new! It had just been Teflon waxed, had the rubber treated and the windows had the GM equivilent of Rain-X on them. Still felt kind of ignorant overspraying my own new car.

The end to the first story wasn't good, court dates, school insurance got hit, she lost her job.

As for the thread up to this point, I think you missunderstood Teetor, you see we always inquire about hair color, in the heat of the day, on the job site, the lighter color hair obsorbs much less heat.

And as for single, it seems to work out that single people dedicate more time to the biz and become much more knowledgable.

So Sherry, sometimes things are not as they appear.

Oh yea, one more thing Sherry, so.........what are ya wearing?:cheesygri
