Nice, what gun/compressor?
Its a Vapor gravity fed spray gun. With a 45 gal craftsman compressor.

^ am i the only one who noticed the buttcrack? :D and nice to see someone else painting out doors! lmao, you must have a really good compressor! i paint outdoors all the time, i heard that the city might complain if i continue to do it but ill wait until i get the warning.
well thats why you have to wait until the 4th of july. let your neighbors have a few drinks and they wouldnt know the difference between which is getting then higher! lol. I was going to take it into a paint booth but the cost was killing me and i decided what the hell!

Do you have any tips on the M3 bumper installation? It looks like you got good fitment!
Best i can tell you is remove both head lights and work from there. with the headlights out of your way you have access to the slide brackets you can push pull and align then put two screws on each side to prevent anyone from removing it or it coming off while driving n hitting a pothole (if u live in a place with roads like NY)

Trust me is the easiest way. longer n harder but well worth the time.

I love the outdoor painting but you guys should invest some time in building a "popup" spray booth. Goes a long way in quality. Maybe just dropping some plastic from the awning that's covering your working area. Idk, just my $0.02.
