    Painting when you've nowhere to paint... What do you do?

    Hey all, I've a dilemma.

    I'm looking to paint some bits for my motor, in fact I've already had a crack at some eyebrows. Unfortunately the only place i have to do this is my back garden and so far I've rubbed down the brows because of everything from flys to spiders web stuck to them, I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on what they do, I'm thinking at the moment that maybe getting one of those dirt cheap single skin tents from chavda's might be a plan...

    tent will fill up with fumes badly! its pretty smelly and hangs around for a while

    i just spray in my garage, i got a bit of wood and just put the bits on there and its fine, do you have a bit in the garage where there is no wind? behind a fence?

    Have you not got a mate that would let you use his garage, because i think you will always be on a looser with doing it outdoors or in a tent!

    Lol,Well i've been lookin at those cheap gazebo things that you can at least stand up in, just need somethin to keep the breeze off really cos i'm sick of rubbing things down cos of a single hair or cos a fly decided it was the best place to sit.

    Incidentally i managed to lacquer 3 wasps today as revenge, nice...

    the trick is to use a hair dryer and flash each coat off to stop things sticking to it.
